Some Days

Motherhood is getting up early,
combing the hair,
packing the lunch,
signing the form,
writing the check,
dropping off and picking up and dropping off again,
washing the grapes,
cleaning up dog puke,
hands in soapy dishwater,
scrubbing the scum from around the sink,
returning the library books,
checking the homework,
finding the reassuring words,
and going to bed...
knowing you are going to get up and to it all again.
When you feel like it, but especially when you do not.
