Harder Than Being a Navy Guy?

Pin It Now!
The other day was a doozy in the motherhood. Elijah, my seven-year-old, knew it.
This was our conversation in the car:

"Mom, is it hard being a mom?"

"What do you think?"

"I don't know. I've never been a mom."

"Yes, Elijah. It is. Some days are harder than others and today was a hard one. But it is the greatest job in the world and totally worth it. But it is also the hardest job in the world."

"Harder than being a navy guy who gets killed?"

Well crud. You got me. Thanks a lot kid.

Happy Memorial Day!
Thank you to all those military folks who make being a mom look easy.

Yeah, today's been a hard mommy day for me, but I prefer it over death. Smart kid!

Elijah is full of wisdom!

This whole weekend has been a hard mommy weekend, but probably not has hard as a Navy guy's weekend. Bright boy you have there!

Leave it up to our young to put things into perspective. Wise little guy!

Somehow those kids just have a way of putting some perspective on things....don't they?
