Mother's Day Musings with the Dalai Momma

Happy Mother's Day to you human and fur moms, step-moms, and moms-to-be. 
Big hugs to those of you missing your Moms and to you moms who lost their babies too soon. 
Today my Mom is taking over my blog to share Mother's Day Musings. 
Take it away, Dalai Momma. 
Happy Mother's Day!

I feel like I have been a mother forever.

When I was 13, my mom had triplets. I was really pissed. We already had money issues that wreaked havoc with our household. Being the oldest, I was well aware of that. When I married in 1976 and moved maybe 5 miles away, I vividly remember crying and the triplets crying that I was moving. So much for being pissed!!
At almost 21, I had my Stephanie. I then learned the meaning of true love. Being one of the very few women who returned to the workforce (at that time) because I never wanted money to be such an issue, it was difficult, but the best option. In 1983, my Stephen was born. My only planned pregnancy! Finally, in 1994, my Sean was born. So I birthed 3 kids in 3 different decades, working full-time for 35 years!

Each of my 3 loved it in the womb. Steph was due 2-21, born 3-15 9 lbs even; Stephen was due 5-21, born 6-4 9 lbs 4 oz.; and Sean was due 9-9, born 9-19, 9 lbs 14 oz. JMJ! All very healthy, thank God! Today, moms-to-be seem to think they should birth their babies EARLY!

I am so very blessed with these 3! A bonus daughter and 2 little grandchildren round that out! Watching our children grow into wonderful adults, good citizens, etc. is such a privilege that I am grateful for every nanosecond.
And my other 2 babies, the furry kind, Sasha and Yogi Bear are such supreme joys! No getting them drivers licenses or sending to college, weddings, etc! LOL!

My very favorite thing is the gift of having all my chickens in my nest for get togethers on special days like this! I would not change my life for anything. I wish for all of you to feel the same. #CONTENT


  1. Happy Mother's day to SMD's Momma! I agree - getting family together is the best present! Today I am keeping my expectations low... no tantrums on Mother's Day? A girl can hope.

  2. YOU WERE ALMOST A MONTH LATE!?!? oh my good god.
