mother: a biological and/or social female parent of an offspring

Having children, when you think about it, goes against every act of common sense we have.
If a stranger came up to you and asked to come stay with you for the next 18-20 years, would you let him? You know nothing of his/her personality, they've done nothing for you, they are a stranger.
He also tells you in the first 2-5 years of living with you, "I'm gonna puke, pee and vomit on everything you own, including you.While I'm around you won't get but 2-3 hours of sleep a night. In the next 5-10 after that, "I'm gonna break yours and neighbors stuff, embarass you, and make you help me with my work. You'll have to pay for doctor bills, take care of me when I'm sick or hurt, and fight with me to take my medicine and earn my keep.
In the next 5 years after that,"I'm gonna barrow your car, make you a nervous wreck. I'm probably going to wreck your car too. Bring my dirty,sloppy,distgusting friends over and trash your house and keep you awake with ou loud music and talking".
Also in the next couple years following, "I may have you pay for my further education, my wedding,and anything else I can come up with".
"Oh hey, while I'm thinking, there may or may not be others just like me asking for the same thing! They'll start this process over & over every couple of years".
If you think about it, thats what happens. Thats why the females are mothers. As a man I would've punched that dude in the face and said, "Are you kidding me"?
Mothers are optomist. They will bring hope and love into any situation. They will feed,clean and cloth these strangers. Mend their wounds,take care of their sickness, and tolerate their loud friends. Do their work, pay their bills, all in the hope that these strangers may one day produce another round of strangers that they can help with.
I know a couple of these crazy people we call mothers. I have one, I was that stranger she took in. I married one and she has taken 4 of these strangers in.
Happy Mother's day you psychos!
