Just a few more of my Mommy Truisms to brighten your Labor day!
Labor is like being stuck in rush hour traffic~annoying, boring,uncomfortable and full of anxiety
Delivery is like minding your own business and suddenly being kicked in the head by a unicorn flying overhead~ painful, unbelievable and magical.
Watching your child learn/experience something for the very first time is more awesome than winning the lottery and a lot more likely to happen in your lifetime.
Vaccinations hurt Mommies 97% more than they actually hurt our children.
Listening to what your 3 year old is trying to tell you is so much more important than any phone call, email, television show, chore~all that other stuff will still be there, your 3 year olds childhood will not.
Firsts are so hard because they lead to lasts.
The first time you leave your child alone with strangers (school, ballet, soccer, gymnastics, daycare) you will cry and feel extreme guilt~ You are NOT a bad Mommy!
Guilt is just a side effect of being a great Mommy!
