My daughter sent this to me and I thought that I would share it with you tonight.
I went to PT a couple of weeks ago and when asked what my occupation was, I said...I am a full time mom and grandmother and a motivational speaker. His reply was as he wrote on the paper...I will just write down speaker.

There are so many people in the world that have no idea what it takes to be a full time mom. How hard it is or how many things you have to know. This story is a perfect example of this. Enjoy!
ONLY A MOTHER WOULD KNOW
Cup of Tea
One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.
I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little ' tea set ' as a gift and it was one of my favorite toys.
Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of ' tea ' , which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.
My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was ' just the cutest thing! ' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know.. :)
"Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"
"She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along." ~Margaret Culkin Banning
