I wrote a post like this a few months ago.
It was a little more serious.
Today is the lighter side.
Because motherhood requires humor as much as it does patience.
Here are a few things to add to my "mother who..." list.
I'm the mother who:
Found grey hairs in her side pony.
I wore a side pony for Halloween.
I thought it was totally cute, in a Pinterest/DIY kind of way.
Until I had a closer look at the actual pony.
Look, I know I have grey hair.
I need to get my roots done every 4 weeks.
But I had no idea that some of those buggers had got away from me.

I have to tell you it was a blast.
Caitlin (5) got a Barbie and Swifty's new CD, RED.
