    One time I started listing all my roles and finally stopped at 50. I thought no wonder I felt so overwhelmed!

    Here’s another great take on our roles as mothers from another blogging friend that I also liked (and thought you would as well):

    • FIFTY? You stopped at FIFTY? I shudder to think how many there would have been had you continued……

      I am clicking on the other post now.

      Thank you! 🙂

        Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either. Worse yet, I couldn’t even chose what the top 5 should be so I could let all the other ones go. It’s in one of my handwritten journals somewhere in the last few years. I should dig it out and take a look and see if I can get more clarity on it.

    Lovely, thought you’d like to know another Irish one you have Máthair (mother) but we would more often say mamaí which would be more casual, like mum or mom and Mamó for nana.
    Happy mothers day, we had ours in March.
