The Advice

Being a Mother is the hardest jod I've had to do.
Parenting is tough at times the benefits are few.

I am so proud of my children, a direct reflection of me.
Even we we butt our heads eventually they see.

Children are not easy. Instructions aren't included.
I find that i get much advice, but much of it's diluted.

Doctors tell you one thing. Parents tell you others.

No one tells you what to do when sisters fight with brothers.

I am a parent of 18 years with a 13 year old as well.
As far as giving out advice there's not much I could tell.

When my children were babies as a parent I was too.
As they grew into adolesence as a parent I grew too.

I love my children dearly and they would tell you that I'm strict.
They still come to mommy when they need a problem fixed.

We have all shed many tears, some yelling, and some laughter.
First the yelling, then the tears, the laughter follows after.

There is no perfect parent, so I want all mothers to know.
If you are a mother you'll learn what you need to know.

Parenting is practice, you'll find you practice it so much.
When they need their mommy, there's nothing like a mother's touch.
