Dear Mama, Pt. 1

Dear Mama,  I know you are tired of those older moms and grandmas, when they see you worn out and weary after endless days with those babies and toddlers, telling you to enjoy them because it goes so fast.   I know you probably get pretty irritated and annoyed and are already beyond your limit when they share this truth with you.
