Things I have learned about being a Mom

1.  You can teach your children to Load and Unload the dishwasher

However do not expect that when they load it they will do it properly… this is apparently rocket science to anybody but Mom.  If they unload it and the sink is full of dishes, unless expressly told to do so, they will not put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher.

2.  Socks will be everywhere

In the couches, under the kitchen table, between mattresses.

3.  They will never use the last of anything

This would require going to the effort of replacing or throwing it out.  In the case of cookies, they will leave one in the bottom.  In the case of milk there will be a swallow.  Water bottles will be drank 3/4 of the way and left wherever.

4.  If something is lost… You will have to find it.

My children have complete melt downs if after 30 seconds of looking they cannot find; something.  This immediately results in “Mom… where’s my…. !”.  Trying to get them to look harder is an argument you probably will not win.  Pick your battles.

5. Until they hit puberty, bathtime, hair brushing and general hygeine will be a war on germs. 

6.  Your house will not be clean ever again!

possibly for an hour if nobody but you is home, but that’s about it.

But most of all I have learned to choose my battles, enjoy the hugs and kisses and fun moments and that time outs were not created for children… they were created for parents.

Food for thought

Transformation Tuesday My Bum

Here’s my tuesday brain fart…..

1.  If you lift….just lift

nobody gets it.  The ones that do have no say in your life though they should.  The ones that make life difficult or think they have a say don’t get it

2. You will never be happy with how you look if you have competed

Once you have gone through weeks if not months of dieting hard and working out and look you’re best.  Unless you are about to go through “it” again you will never look like that…. Thus you’re best becomes unattainable in daily life.  Be prepared to not be happy looking in the mirror

3.  Men and ex’s don’t get it.

He will think you did what you did to spite / get him back / make him jealous.

He will never understand it was for you and you did it cause you could.  Regardless, be prepared for backlash of going from fat to fit after.  It pisses them off.

4.  Children are a result of both parents

No matter what you do, how you do it or you’re best intentions….. the other parent can screw up you’re kid no matter what.  Seek help.  Now.

5. You’re not super mom

you are’nt.  You may have the cape and the heels but really.  Do the best you can with what you have and hope for the best.  Its all anyone can do.  Love you’re children. Make the best choices you can and everyone elses’ comments and opinions be damned.
