    My kids brought me breakfast in bed, then proceeded to eat MY breakfast. If that doesn't sum up motherhood I don't know what does.

    Went to pay for my Starbucks in the drive-thru & the barista said “the handsome man behind you is going to pay for yours!” I look back & say “Oh! That’s my husband!” She said “That’s so sweet! You’re lucky!” & then my son hollered “yeah you don’t live with him!” Kids are fun.
