Mommyhood

Posted on

I am doing another Sunday Special this week with more ways you know you are a Mom.

Lessons from my life this week:

  1. You are exhausted, ready for a nap, and your toddler is running laps around you.
  2. You realize that your husband is no longer the primary person whose inner life is frustratingly mysterious to you.
  3. You feel a sense of relief when you get the giant annoying booger out of a tiny little nose.
  4. You can’t go to the bathroom without a small person there to hand you the toilet paper.
  5. You buy goldfish crackers by the truckload… and pick up all the crumbs in the car.
  6. A trip to the grocery store by yourself is the best. thing. ever.  And in the car you can turn the Maroon 5 cd as loud as you want. Or for some, you can have complete and total silence.
  7. You get kisses and your face is left with the mushed up animal crackers that were previously on your daughter’s mouth.
  8. You hear the sound of a truck stopping outside so you rush to the window to make sure it’s not a Fed-Ex/UPS man about to ring your doorbell and/or knock, thus ending the  precious nap time.
  9. You bond with strangers who share your parenting techniques.
  10. You’re out at a nice restaurant and in your purse, you find a pair of baby shoes, a diaper, and a toy.  And you’re unphased.
  11. You start humming the songs your child’s toys make… when you’re alone.
  12. You see a stain or wet spot on your clothes and don’t even wonder where it came from, because, who knows?
  13. Sesame Street is a welcome friend in your home, because you know it will buy you 10 minutes.
  14. When giving baths you come out more soaked then you child.
  15. You finally understand what your mom meant when she said “You will understand when you have kids someday.”

  1. hahaha. I have definitely done #11. and 12 through the end totally hit home for me. I’m now in the habit of wearing at least one article of clothing that I can immediately wipe my hands on without worry, no matter what it is 🙂
