A Mother's Thoughts

These are random thoughts that cross a Mom's mind at any given point during the day. Trust me, I bet any mom who reads this has thought these things, too.....

If I have to wipe her nose one more me, sweetie, it's no picnic for me, either. (as she screams bloody murder)

That's weird. I don't remember feeding her corn. (guess what I was doing when I had this thought)

I guess them being sick isn't too bad. At least they cuddle more.

If I could nap....or be by myself....for 45 minutes....

I totally overreacted on that one. I wonder if she will remember that when she's 40.

Why is it that her dad and I have taught her everything she knows for the first four and a half years, but school gets all the credit?

Why is it when I ask specific questions about her morning at school, I get vague, general answers, but when her Papa asks her what she learned, he gets a five-minute dissertation on how ladybugs hibernate during the winter?

How is is possible that she hated that food two days ago, and now loves it? Or that she loved that food two days ago, and now won't take a bite of it?

How do you get through motherhood and still refrain from becoming addicted to caffeine?

Will my living room ever look the same again?

How can I stop time? I'm not sure I can take one more birthday.

There are some things I would never buy my daughters, but I know they will receive them anyway....Polly Pockets, Barbie accessories (namely, shoes and earrings), Littlest Pet Shop, anything that makes noise.

Whoever thought up a nasal aspirator had a good heart and intentions, but was pretty brainless when it comes to an 11-month-old.

Thank you, God, for fresh starts. Because sometimes Mama needs them as much as a five-year-old.
