the pleasure is all mine

Motherhood is a thankless job so far.  Six years of the hardest work I have EVER done and hardly a word of thanks from the little darlings.  They thank me for handing them a second Oreo cookie, but that is just good manners.  My husband thanks me, from his heart, and often, but though his thanks are vital, he is not under my care. 

Just when I feel that I can't take one more step, Bright Eugene hands me this.
I hang it on the door of the school room, and I am good to go for at least another six years.
