Mommy Truisms;the Labor Day edition

by Deborah Cruz

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!
Happy Mothering, my friends!

Oh girl, you so speak the truth! I am still mourning the fact that I don't have any more babies/toddlers in my house. Three year old childhoods definitely are not forever. 🙁 This was a great post!

Oh yes… You should SEE us all DROP everything and LEAN in all squinty eyed when my 3 year old starts to talk. WHY does squinting make us HEAR better. That's what my SIX year old wants to know. (smart ass!)
