I never know when inspiration will strike. That’s why I have about 10 sticky notes in my purse at any time, covered with brilliant (!) ideas or things my kids have said.
Or just covered with the grocery list. Whatevs.
One such note I pulled out the other day seemed appropriate to share as Mother’s Day approaches. It’s an incomplete, haphazard list of some things I’m thankful for that were changed, made better, started, and/or developed by mothers who came before me.
And to all of those moms I express my thanks!
Thank you for the lactation room at work.
Thank you for paid leave after the birth of my children.
Thank you for Baby & Me groups.
Thank you for telling me to go to the Baby & Me groups.
Thank you for the microwaveable bottle cleaner.
Thank you for before- and after-school care.
Thank you for flex-time.
Thank you for telling me to throw the underwear away after my child pooped in it.
Thank you for all the advice you’ve given me and not judging me when I don’t follow it.
Thank you for juice boxes.
What’s something you are thankful for that was started or changed by the moms who have come before you?
Happy Mother’s Day!
