As Moms, we learn how to make life work. We learn how to make sunrises fun instead of torturous. We learn how to make frowning faces a game and how to find smiles instead of tears.
And even when we can't (because kids do know their own minds and just exactly how to push our buttons), we also know how to brush our hands off, smile and move on. We know how to find joy in the moment even if the moment is exactly opposite of what we had in mind. And besides, we can remember it any way we want to.
