PSA: Thank Your Mom On Your Birthday

Or whoever else needs it.

Posted on

I get it, it's the anniversary of YOU entering the world, and you're SO HAPPY to be here.

OK, angels MAY have been involved, but they didn't place you directly on Earth. You made a "quick" nine-month pit stop first...IN YOUR MOM'S UTERUS.


On "your" birthday, after freeloading IN HER BODY FOR NINE MONTHS — her water broke, most likely ruining something she loved, like her bed.


FYI, the adoption/surrogate process is just as emotionally long and painful as a physical birth is, so you're not exempt from this if that's how you got here.
