mommyhood: the good, the bad, and the ones that have me scratching my head

when i first found out that i was going to have a baby i had to get the popular "what to expect when you're expecting" book, because they have all the answers right. haha yeah, that was a good one. i've learned so many things since having him that make me thinking, "wheres that book?!"

the good:
-easily putting back that super awesome shirt you found to buy him another rattle toy, because he smiles when you shake it.
-the smiles over the simplest things
-the smiles because they recognize you or your voice.
-the coos.
-bathtime and watching him kicks his legs in excitement when he first hits the water.
-snuggling, snuggling, snuggling.
-that moment when you realize hes finally asleep.

the bad:
-how they easily figure out to pinch that thin layer of fat on your neck or arms and hold on like the world is ending. 
-hair pulling
-spit up. oh how it smells.
-the screams because they are hungry. you try to get food as quickly as possible but it never seems fast enough.
-hitting every red light on the way somewhere with a screaming child
-leaky diapers

the head scratchers:
-one second no paci, next second, paci saves the day.
-how quickly diapers and formula disappear. "seriously, didnt i just buy that?"
-how a small little being needs so much luggage. seriously its like moving anytime we go anywhere.
-must get up at 6 to be out of the house by 10 if i'm wanting to look halfway decent.
-how such big boogers come of that little bitty nose.
-how quickly they grow. he's going to be driving any day now.
-you somehow figure out how to one hand everything. eating your own food, getting yourself ready, cooking & my personal favorite driving with one hand and reaching in the backseat to put a paci in his mouth.

and most of all, the best thing ever

-how i could love something so much that i dont know how life existed before him.

what are some of your most favorite, ugliest or head scratching moments of parenthood?


  1. YOu pretty much summed it all up, except maybe the getting up in the middle of the night for feeding...I remember that as the worst of all...haha...but then again it's been almost 10 years for me...
