Moms come in every shape, way, form, talent, and ability; and moms' roles morph and change as their kids grow up. My roles as early-childhood educator and language teacher are long past. Now I am personal assistant, budgeter-in-chief, travel coordinator, driving instructor, grocery shopper, mom-Uber, medical assistant, chief scheduler, laundry expert, therapist and counselor, procurement specialist, nutrition counselor, director of education, wardrobe expert, gourmet chef, guidance counselor, wise woman and elder, motivator, career counselor, debate team leader, cultural interpreter, and occasional pet manager,.... and all of this before I have even begun my real job.
Every mom is different, every mom deserves a big hug and kiss, every mom does soooo much. Thank you to all you moms out there for your unending dedication. What kind of a mom are you?
