On Being A Mommy...

Since I've been doing this "Mothering" thing for seven years now, here are a few things I've figured out so far:

  • one can go days without a shower, if necessary
  • one CAN go outside of the house without makeup on, I can't believe at one time I actually thought you could not.
  • pb & j for lunch 5 times a week isn't excessive, if that is what the kids want to eat
  • random "I love you Mommy" moments are becoming less and less frequent as kids age
  • you make mistakes, you tRy and learn from them and MoVe On
  • counting 'till three before speaking when you're mad is really hard...especially when massive messes are involved
  • you can make or break the day, simply by your attitude towards it
  • you can't do it alone, and you're not supposed to, that is why you need God
  • one can become indifferent towards constast clutter if they are exposed to it long enough
  • accidents will happen, daily
  • children are NoT born sweet and innocent
  • once cleaned, your bathroom will not stay that way for more than one hour
  • I realize that I still have a LoT to learn

Just a few random thoughts, oh, and that is another thing I've learned since becoming a Mommy. Random, fleeting thoughts are common....wait, what was I doing again?

Linking up my thoughts here:
