Poem – Somebody said

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had a baby….

Somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, “normal” is history.

Somebody said you can’t love the second child as much as you love the first….

Somebody doesn’t have two children.

Somebody said you don’t need an education to be a mother….

Somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.

Somebody said being a mother is boring….

Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver’s permit.

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

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….

Somebody never had grandchildren.
