Sometimes it hits me how truly un-glamourous motherhood is!  It’s the hardest job I have ever had and to be frank, most of the time I feel like I totally suck at it!  Don’t get me wrong, I try crazy hard at it, I learn, grow and practice but at the end of the day, I feel like I still have to apologize for something!  (although my sweet children most of the time tell me that I don’t have to say I’m sorry because I didn’t do anything wrong!…AHHHHH….)  any way….what I love is being able to laugh at myself and the rest of you too!  Oh ya, I’m throwing you all under this bus baby!  So here is a little list for you all to enjoy, and then please feel free to add to it! 🙂


1* dressing up means putting on your “nice” sweats

2* you think you have “done” your hair because you backcombed it  before you pulled it into a pony!
3* your “bosses” (aka, the little people running around your legs right now) think your real name is actually “MOM”
4* you make 8.4 meals per day but you have coffee for breakfast, coffee for lunch and wine for dinner!

5*  you talk, but no one hears a word you say

6*  your life’s goals have been reduced to: peeing alone, showering alone, sleeping alone, or grocery shopping…alone.

7*  you are stupid…and the older your kids are, the stupider (yes that’s a word) you are!!!

8*  you can be overcome with sweet, tender love one second, and wonder if the devil is climbing out of you the next!  (oh please say you can relate to this one!)

9*  you know more about Sponge Bob than you do president Clinton…oh wait, who’s the president now????

10*  you can’t do 2nd grade math.  Ok, seriously people…who makes up this homework they bring home?????

11* you brag about your crockpot skills, your diaper changing skills and your potty training success!  You my friend are a rock star.

12*  you can talk on the phone to the bank while fixing dinner, breaking up a fight, cleaning up dog poop, and putting on a bandaid.  Oh ya baby, you are good.

13* you love bigger and crazier than you ever thought was possible in this lifetime!
