That Somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "Normal," is history.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct.

That Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.

Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good."

That Somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing

questions in the books.
That Somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery.

That Somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten, or on a plane headed for military "boot camp."

Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married.

That Somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.

Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home.

That Somebody never had grandchildren.
