There are a lot of things that motherhood brings about that I never thought about before the line turned pink on that little plastic stick. For instance, I never wondered when my next shower was going to be. I rarely got excited about a clean floor. And I never, ever questioned my ability to get an uninterrupted night's sleep. But what shocks me the most about being a momma are the things that actually come out of my mouth. I mean sometimes I am amazed about the things that I have to say. Not just those things we expected we would say just because our parents did to us when we were kids: "Because I said so" "How many times do I have to tell you" "You just wait 'till your father get's home" "Go pick a switch" (yikes) What really gets me are the things that a person just shouldn't HAVE to say. It's like we are raising little nincompoops... These are all things that I have conjured in my brain* and have exited out through my lips:
(*please note, I will not express here the things that were conjured in my brain that I actually caught through my filter and never allowed to exit out of my mouth. I will not be held responsible for said thoughts... I am only human and if we all actually said what we thought, our poor children would be in counseling forever)
"Stop licking me!" This one was said to Wild Man J just moments ago.
"Please don't ride your bike in my bedroom." Sweet G thought for some reason that this was a good idea. What's even more surprising is his puzzled "Why not?" reply.
"Why are you in my bed naked?" nope - not said to my husband.... Thanks for waking me up this way Wild Man J. apparently, he didn't want to snuggle with me in a wet pull up.
"I'm gonna tear your butt up" This one I must have picked up somewhere growing up in Pelion.
"Why is there another apple core on the floor?" sigh... a constant battle
"I can't come right now, I have poop on my hands!" Thanks for that nice little diaper change
"Please don't run over your sister" -- the bike is still in my living room.
Last but not least - "Momma loves you," and I never can say it enough.
