The Writing Mamas Daily BlogEach day on the Writing Mamas Daily Blog, a different member will write about mothering.
If you're a mom then you've said these words, you've made these observations and you've lived these situations - 24/7.
And for that, you are a goddess.

Which is Scarier? Movies or Real Life?
“Guys, Mom is going to the movies.”
“With scary parts, like monsters?”
“No, a chick movie.”
“What’s a chick movie?”
“It’s where ladies talk a lot about their feelings and everybody else does, and nobody hits anybody, and they kiss boys a lot and sometimes cry.”
“Ew. . . why would anybody watch that?”
“I like movies where there are scary parts and chases, but then sometimes, like tonight, I like to see ladies having lots of big feelings and kissing cute boys and probably crying, too.”
Heavy, serious sigh. “OK. But I want to see the movies where there are scary parts and I won’t even be scared because I’m brave.”
“You know, being brave sometimes is having big feelings and kissing boys. Getting married and having babies is really brave.”
“But now you have no scary parts because I’m here and I will kiss you and you don’t need to be scared.”
God bless the child.
