Being a mother

In honor of tomorrow, I thought I would share some things I have learned about being a mother.

1. When my mom spanked me and said, "This will hurt me more than it hurts you," she wasn't kidding.

2. Getting all pretty for work is the least of my worries. The fact that I can get myself and both kids dressed, fed and out the door by 6:20 am is a miracle in itself.

3. Breast milk, formula, baby food, snot, boogers, blood, poop, and other bodily fluids became my newest fashion accessory. The surprising part is, it doesn't bother me.

4. I bake a lot more then I ever have, but I am not the one that gets to lick the batter out of the bowl anymore.

5. Driving in the slow lane with no music to work is enjoyable. Why...its my only time to myself, it adds 5-10 minutes to my drive and the silence is amazing!!!

6. Going to the bathroom by yourself is no longer an option. Even if you shut the door, little fingers appear and you hear "mama, can you see my fingers"!

7. Praying that last years fashion will still be in style (and fit) happens with each season because the kid you just bought all new clothes for 3 weeks ago has outgrown them and needs more.

8. Cold pasta, chicken nugget's and fries really aren't that bad when you are hungry.

9. My parents and in-laws have turned into these weird aliens that I have never met. They let the kids do things Jamie and I were never allowed to do when we were growing up.

10. Finally, I never knew it was truly possible to love and be loved unconditionally until I became a mom. In their eyes, I am super mom who can do it all, and in my eyes, they are angels sent from heaven to make me want to be a better person. And all that other worth it.
