To Cheryl

To Cheryl and other friends of mine who are going through the monotonous phase of being a mom to one or more young kids. Diapers, food, dishes, laundry, pick up toys - repeat.

In case you ever doubt the validity of the same day-to-day taks you might have. Please read this article. Do you want to see what life would be like if you ceased to exist to your family? You do more good, every single day, than you know. It not monotony. It's just very slow progress. Go hug your kids.

This is a heartwrenching story.

Wow. Thank you so much for that article. I know this situation was the extreme (and it just broke my heart), but it's good to be reminded that the drudgery I do everyday is worth it. And I know it's worth it. I always have --always will; it's just hard sometimes. Really hard.
But man. So worth it.

Thank you! You're a great friend. :)

This was a heartbreaking story, so sad. Although I don't have children yet, I'm looking forward to the everyday aspects of having kids. Taking them to parks, playing with them and yes, even the monotonous things! MB, you'll be a fantastic mom one day!
