What defines a good mother? Is it a large home filled with every fun toy and gadget? Is it to be an excellent cook? Is it to have a spotless home? NO! it is none of these things. Mom's mother, Julia "Judy" Gwilliam was a perfect mom, but mom remembers that she wasn’t a very good housekeeper. But she taught mom a little poem that helped mom a lot. It goes like this:
Babies Don't Keep
I hope my children will look back on today
And see a mother who had time to play.
There will be years for cleaning and cooking
But children grow up while we're not looking.
Dusting and scrubbing can wait 'till tomorrow
For babies grow fast we learn to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.
We love you! Happy Mother's Day. You're all awesome mom's, and we're so very proud of you!
