10 Things I've Learned

Crappy yesterday = scheduled post.  Sorry.


10 Things I've Learned as a Mother

1. You will spend more money on a dress for your daughter than one for yourself.


2. Not everyone enjoys sleep as much as you do did. And you CAN survive without it.

3. Never live in a house without a kitchen door. with a lock.

4. If you ever want to talk on the phone again, you must install a soundproof phone booth. with a lock.

5. The person that you couldn't live without is the same person who you threaten to drop off at the orphanage. daily.

6. You CAN look at & even clean up puke without vomiting yourself. among other things.

7. Injuries often hurt you worse than your child. and shots. and stitches/staples. and hurt feelings.

8. You will gain a new appreciation for cartoons.

9. How to eat an entire meal in under 5 minutes while feeding 3 children.

10. Your life will never be the same. and you wouldn't have it any other way.
