(la.) Upper Das Mcinei thurttloy, Moy S, 1966 MOTHERHOOD IS QUITE A racket. It's the only profession where the fringe benefits far outweigh the salary. Once you get the job of Mother, you very seldom get fired from it. Even those of us who have done a great many things wrong in our job of mothering, somehow managed to come out with pretty good products - children who are a lot tetter than we really deserve 1 - o - WE MOTHERS REALLY HAVE IT made the second Sunday in every May because then, no matter how ornery we've been all year, everybody suddenly puts us on a pedestal, talks about how PRING Has OUT ove i?

It's Mother's Day and I really go for it I PEOPLE CAN TALK ALL they want to about how Mother's Day Is promoted Just to sell lots of flowers, lingerie and candy. Perhaps this is true, but Pm not going to knock it. I plan to reap every honor I can out of the occasion. The real low-down on the situation, though, is that if I never get another tribute, I've already received more from my job as mother than I could possibly have put into it. - o « THE FIRST THLNG MOTHERS give to their job, according to the tributes is to "go down into the valley of the shadow of death to give their children life." Well, because I didn't know there was any other way of doing it, I did that all right. The discomfort and pain conies with the package deal. But I was well-paid for all of it the moment I saw my first baby. - o - THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY to give a great deal of love if you have the job of mother. I'm proud to say that I was able to bestow great gobs of it, in between yelling for the kids to be quiet and administering pats on the rears. In return I got lots of love back even if the kisses were sometimes flavored with bubble gum or smeary from peanut butter-jelly sandwiches. There were times, I suspect, when our kids might have preferred a little less love from me and a little more help with the college tuition or buying a new dress, but love was one thing never short in supply. - o - YOU CAN'T DO MUCH LOAFING on the job, especially for the first few years of mothering. Lots of the duties are extremely pleasant such as rocking infants, going on family picnics or hearing prayers. Then there are also things such as scrubbing the kitchen floor for the umpteenth time this week, washing the dirty diapers, dishes and blue jeans, and mopping up after some child has been sick to his stomach. It all goes with the job but a mother gets big dividends from every bit of labor invested. Some of them are finding that her daughters can clean the house as well as she can, having a son receive a coveted diploma, and finding that the children can not only take care of their own clothing, they can also earn the money to buy it. - o - THERE IS SOCIAL SECURITY connected with mothering and you don't have to be anywhere near 65 to start collecting it. Did you ever think how much duller a coffee party would be if we didn't have our kids to talk about ? In fact, a social life can be composed entirely of being a mother if you let it - Den Mother, Room Mother, Car-pool Mother and so on. These may or may not be considered exactly benefits but there are times when a young sprout, who may have indicated strongly only a few hours ago that you were a little less than perfection, but he nevertheless points you out at a gathering with, "That's my Mom I" The pride isn't all on one side then. - o - ONE OF THE BIGGEST BONUSES to being a mother is Father. It is possible to be a fairly good mother without Father - that is after his first original contribution, but it's extremely hard and a lot less rewarding. Sometimes we forget how nice a father is during those hectic first years and tend to pay more attention to the kids than we do to the Old Man. But the years when the kids are at home are few - about 20 years at best - and they pass quickly. We miss the kids then and are proud that they can stand on their own feet. After all, that was our aim in rearing them, wasn't it ? Once you are a mother you are always a mother even if it has to be from a long distance. And if Mother still has Father around, and is still speaking to him, it's one of the richest rewards of parenthood. So, happy Mother's Day to you, too, Father 1 . t , , ... , .... . o - "' ' DURING THE WEEK OF May 1 through 7, people having birthdays include Frank King, Randy Stalzer, Anna Steven, Fred Duerr, Mary Kay Knoll, Edgar Meyer, Bob Smith, Mrs. C.
