. . .muck out a barn with a pitchfork (not using the skid steer) by hand than gather, sort, wash, dry, fold and put away laundry!
. . .AI sows than clean the kitchen!
I hate housework, sometimes my Mom even has to bring her bucket of magic cleaning supplies over and help me (yes I realize that is pathetic). Once (true story) my kids were little and my Mom had been
But more than anything I would rather do all of the above and get to be the "stay-at-home farm hand Mom" that I am! So this Mother's Day my hat (and Chris bought me a new really cool one) goes off to all the Mom's that work in and out of the home and manage to do it all (or at least fake it like me)! YOU ALL ARE AMAZING!
But to my Mom I say "THANK YOU" a million and one times (maybe more since I am sure I didn't say it enough growing up) for all you have done for me in my life! My Mom taught school for 28 years, kept the books for the farm, cleaned the house, did the laundry, raised 2 awesome amazing kids and my brother (JK he is almost as amazing as me and my sister - he did marry good and has 4 great kids), cooked every meal (including all the meals she took to the field), there was always something sweet on the counter when we got home from school and supported us thru EVERYTHING!
This is where I would post a picture of my Mom - but as a present to her I won't - she hates having her picture taken!
So instead I will post a picture of what she loves most - her grandchildren!
Casey, Bunk, Emi Lou, Abi, Molly, Ellie, Alli, Cole, Andi, Cade - the first 10
and not to forget
Born after the pic of all of them was taken!
I LOVE YOU MOM
