Now that I’m a Mom, I FULLY appreciate everything that my mom did for us as children. The list is never ending of selfless acts she did (and still does) for the ones she loves. Especially around the holidays, the to do lists are a mile long. The parties, baking, shopping, traditions, family, and the hustle and bustle of everything!

My mom would read this poem to us every year around Christmas and I didn’t think it was as funny as I do now! Haha! Totally relatable now that I’m a mom and everything that goes into getting ready for Christmas.

Enjoy and SHARE it to all the other moms!
