Mom's the Word: The Wit, Wisdom and Wonder of Motherhood is a tribute to moms including the best things anyone ever said about motherhood. Author Allen Klein included the heartfelt, but he also included the real life.
An example of heartfelt:
"It will be gone before you know it.
The fingerprints on the wall appear higher and higher.
Then suddenly they disappear."
An example of real life:
If pregnancy were a book, they would cut the last two chapters.
There are a lot of pleasant things said about mothers in this collection as well. I like that part. Mothers should have lovely things said about them. I know they aren't technically perfect beings floating around, but to their children they are. You see, I don't really remember the stuff that my mother did wrong. I do however, remember everything I did wrong. And even if she handled my disobedience in a way that went against every mothering handbook ever made, I still only remember what I did wrong, and that she cared enough to forgive me.
