Now that I'm a mom.....

March 10, 2014

Now that I'm a mom.....

 I HATE time changes. They are the worst.

My days are filled with way more laughter than ever before.

I have either food, dried snot, or a sticker on my clothing at all times. The same can be said for my child.

I can recite ALL THE BOOKS from memory.

I don't sleep. Ever. 

There are foot prints on my coffee table, crayon on my couch, and peanut butter on my cabinets. 

I can make a meal out of cheese, smooshed blackberries, applesauce, and graham crackers.

I can do my makeup and hair in under 20 minutes.

I have a granola bar, applesauce, crayons, wipes, and a toy car in my purse at all times.

My patience has increased by at least 100%.

But I love it. Every minute, even the hard ones. I've never been so tired...yet I wake up missing my boy. My house has never been so full of laughter...or so messy yet beautiful at the same time. The same can be said about me. 

This mom job...it's the best.

  1. yes yes yes!! Luckily for me, Turner was not even affected by the time change yesterday. Yes, he slept in (since the time did change) but he still went to bed @ the same time last night. I got so lucky!!!

  9. HAHAHAHA! So true! :) Weston decided that he should "stay on schedule" by waking up at the same time he always does, even though it was technically an hour earlier. WTH baby?!?!?!

  10. Us mommas know how to rock it! I've learned how to do more with one hand than I ever imagined possible after having my daughter. The struggle is real, lol. Have a great week!

  11. The mess is what makes the laughs! Such a fun sweet post! I love it! I'm totally with you on how motherhood gives you patience - I never would have believed it if someone had told me that. I also love that white/navy top you have on that I just bought :)

  13. Haha. Time changes suck both in the fall and in the spring. UGH. Luckily I just missed out having TWO kiddos to deal with during the time change. I am already dreading the fall back ONE! Hudson and you are so stinking cute! Love this. Being a mom is the BEST thing EVER!

  28. You are too right! I love being a mom. I miss my daughter when I go to bed because she is in her crib in her room. Sometimes it's more than I can handle so I go grab her and bring her into be with us so I can cuddle her and have her close!!
