Mommy Truisms; Because Poop Happens Edition

by Deborah Cruz

I guest posted over at One Savvy Mom over the weekend. I told you all it would be available on Friday but it actually was posted on Sunday so many of you probably missed it. I know how much you all love the Mommy Truism’s so I am re posting them here to share with all of you.

  • Watching your baby be born in a mirror is much like watching a horror movie but holding your baby for the first time is as close to heaven as you will get on earth!
  • Sleep ~ By far, the most important part of EVERY Mommy’s day. 
  • Motherhood is misery laced with profound moments of complete bliss!  
  • Naps~ When babies nap, Mommy MUST nap too or complete collapse will ensue (Mental, physical, and emotional meltdowns are guaranteed).

  • Emotionally the first day of Kindergarten is harder than 13 hours of labor, for Mommy.
  • When your child gets intentionally hurt by another child, survivalist Mommy intuition makes you want to trip, kick, hit, beat, or bite the 3 foot tall offender.
  • For the little sister of a kindergartner, every morning is like sending the kindergartner off to war and every pick up is returning home safe and victorious.

  • Naps ~ Keeping children alive since the beginning of time.
  • 99% of the time, when giving birth… you WILL poop on the table!
  • Watching your child struggle in social situations is like watching them try to learn how to walk for the first time. You stand back and try to see what happens, and then you give them gentle nudges in the right direction, if all else fails, you grab them by the hands and show them how its done.
  • Mommies are the healthy, organic meal that sustains our children; Daddies are the dessert.
  • No matter how you try to prepare yourself, what your age, religion, race, sex, socio-economic standing- the moment you first set eyes on your newborn baby will leave you breathless!

They are all so true right down to the pooping in labor. I had to laugh at that as it was my greatest fear with my first pregnancy, and it happened, and I could have cared less.
