Motherhood should come with...

Almost forgot about 5 minute Friday. We started out this morning in a whirl which makes me even more excited to stop and write if even for only 5 minutes.

Today I am joining They Gypsy Mama for five minutes of writing without thinking, without stopping, without editing. What's today's topic? What else...Motherhood!

Ready, set, GO:

Motherhood should come with: A warning label. Maybe even a list of side effects. Yes there is abundant joy and unconditional love but you may want to know that with that comes vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches.

Motherhood should come with: A warranty. Insurance. Something that would guarantee that everything would work out exactly how it should and in the case of some unforeseen disaster, it would all be taken care of.

Motherhood should come with: A reward's card. Every positive parenting moment earns you reward points, extra points would be earned for times when your kids are sick, teething, terrible twoing, teenaging, etc. Points could be redeemed for mom necessities like coffee, pedicures, shopping trips, and week long secluded vacations.

Motherhood should come with: Customer service. Maybe a 1-800 number to call when you just don't have the answers. Some one who is available 24 hours a day to come out and "service" what ever is broken. A drop off service station where your kids come out reprogrammed and in the condition you first brought them home in.


That's all I got time for today. Can you tell what kind of week it has been in my house? I hard week for momma! Had this post came at a different time it might have looked different, might have had a touch of sentiment to it. I guess that speaks to the job of looks completely different from week to week.

Want to join in? Head on over and link up at The Gypsy Mama:


  1. I love the first one! It reminds me of when my daughter (at 3 months old) threw up all over both of us, in bed, during the night, when I was home with her alone. There are moments of great joy, and then there are moments of total ickiness! :)

  2. Thanks for the laugh on this! I could totally use a motherhood rewards card but could I cash it in for sleep? :)

  3. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! Customer service was what I was trying to think of! Perfect! Come visit anytime! :)


I sure love hearing from don't be shy, feel free to share what's on your heart!
