Happy Mother's Day

I was in my first year of high school, and out of luck in the library department. I couldn’t find anything fun to read, and then I stumbled on Erma Bombeck’s At Wit’s End and The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank and it was my first experience of well written humor. Erma knew how to make people Erma laugh, and she had no issues laughing at herself, so for this Mother’s Day….

To all the web mums out there, a Happy Mother’s Day, and while I’m at it, a few quotes from Bombeck’s book, Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession:

"Mother" has always been a generic term synonymous with love, devotion, and sacrifice. There's always been something mystical and reverent about them. They're the Walter Cronkites of the human race . . . infallible, virtuous, without flaws and conceived without original sin, with no room for ambivalence."

"It's [motherhood] the biggest on-the-job- training program in existence today."

and the most poignant (to me, at least):

Motherhood is the second oldest profession in the world. It never questions age, height, religious preference, health, political affiliation, citizenship, morality, ethnic background, marital status, economic level, convenience, or previous experience.
