The Images of a Mother

The Images of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My mom knows everything!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - My mother doesn't know anything.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's clueless!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

Real mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.

Real mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.

Real mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade, but by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...
