Many years ago I had purchased 4 matching Easter Baskets, 4 matching Christmas Stockings, and 4 matching baby pictures frames that would one day belong to my 4 healthy, beautiful, thoughtful, never a snotty nose children. Well, as you probably have guessed, I quickly learned that motherhood is a humbling process and sometimes no matter how hard you try or how much you plan, you just can’t always keep noses wiped, rooms perfectly clean, and everyone happy all the time. In fact, somedays, you just might glue that baby bow to your child’s bald little head and it just might restick itself to you without you knowing it until the Costco employee asks if you were aware of the “bow tie" on your chin.” My 3 beautiful kids had humbled me and taught me that my plan was not always the actual plan. Usually the actual plan was way better than my plan!
