Five Things: Motherhood




My original post was a letter to my sixteen year old self but at 2 A.M I decided to change to a list of things I know about being a mother.

  1. Time is not on your side: Between the on demand feedings, homework, reading flat Stanley, baths, laundry etc I'm not sure how I have time to take a shower, run a comb through my hair but I always do. I probably should be asleep when I'm doing these things though. 
  2. The Mr. TOTALLY got the long end of the parental stick. He works at night so when he gets home in the morning he gets to play or sleep with a happy well rested baby. I get to do the battle royal at 2am. But there is always Saturday night where I just pass the kids on to him and veg out in front of the TV or take a long shower and do my hair. 
  3. Being home with the kids isn't easy (God Bless stay at home moms) but it is awesome. I don't really know how I'm going to go back to corporate babies and leave these two munchkins. I really miss the thinking parts of my job but I'm just happy being home right now. 
  4. Social life might suffer a bit but when REAL friends come to visit they bring wine and cake! :)
  5. I've grown to hate the "Motherhood is a thankless job" meme. I'm thankful for every moment I get to spend with the Giants. Even if I don't hear Thank you all the time watching my sons grow, thrive at school, in sports and just become good human beings is all the thanks I need. 
I love doing these lists so I'm sure there will be more  to come.
