More Mommy Truisms

by Deborah Cruz

I told you in the original Mommy Truisms that I would let them trickle out as they came to me, and so here are a few more Mommy truisms ( as I know them to be). I am sure most of you can relate  and if you can’t yet, be patient…..you will.

  • 4 is the new 16, Learn it, Love it, Live it!The sooner you do, the quicker you can adjust your game plan and plan accordingly.
  • It only takes a second of a turned head for a baby to fall off of a changing table; but it takes the rest of the day for a CAT scan.
  • If you are a first time Mommy and the doctor tells you that they think your daughter has yet another “viral” infection do not insist they take blood to prove it to you.
  • (This goes hand in hand with the previous truism) At all cost, avoid having blood drawn in children between the ages of 1-6, they are too old for a heel stick but their little arms and veins are so tiny it is like murdering a cat to get blood. I repeat; DO NOT do this!
  • Anything over a 4 hour car ride with toddlers is a suicide/homicide mission!
  • Mommy’s who say everything is easy and never break a sweat are either A) in complete denial of their situation , B) completely and utterly  insane, C) liars or D) All of thee above or a combination of the three because nobody’s life is without its issues.So, don’t believe the hype.
  • Sometimes they cry, sometimes we cry but at the end of the day…it’s all love.
  • There is absolutely nothing wrong with play dates consisting of Popsicles and margaritas; some days that is what the situation warrants.
  • New Mommies, on the first night home with your newborn, it is perfectly acceptable to sleep with your ceiling fan light turned all the way on so that you can see every single breath your baby takes.
  • It is also acceptable to occasionally get up in the middle of the night, and check that said baby is still breathing by way of putting your hand on baby’s chest to feel that it is moving up an down. ( Don’t judge me..you know you’ve done it)
  • Also, their is no age at which this is inappropriate as you will always be their Mother and they will always be your baby!

That’s all for today’s truisms, but there are plenty more. Stay tuned! Happy Mothering!

So true!. I had to take my oldest for bloodwork last year twice. I had to hold her in a bear hug and have a tech hold her legs. She's only 26 pounds but she has super human strength. all my kids do.

Love this post. I have a feeling I'm going to be sleeping with my hand on the baby's chest for a few weeks. I'm a bit anxious about that first night home with him. Thanks for making me laugh this morning with the truth!

So amazingly true. You might need to add another option to those moms who say everything is easy. There's a very good chance that they are completely hopped up on drugs.

Why do doctors insist on taking blood from a 3 yr old?! My guy gave his doctor's entire staff a run for their money! I had to lay him down and basically "sit" on him to hold him down…crazy!
I'm your newest follower from friendly follow..nice to "meet" you. Can't wait for more truisms!!!
