Diaper pins and teething rings,
and other little baby things,
fevers, earaches, late-night feeding,
toddler tantrums, and bedtime reading.
School days, homework, and scheduled classes,
friends, parties, and field trip passes.
Learning to drive, friends, and the phone,
growing up and out on their own.
The days fly by year into year,
but all is worth it, each one dear.
If history really did repeat,
Moms would do it again,
in a heartbeat.
"If evolution really works, how come
mothers only have two hands?"
