THE SIGNS OF ADVANCED MOMHOOD
By: Liane Carter
I'm sure many of you will able to relate! Enjoy!
Maybe it starts when you realize that you are offering to cut up other peoples food. Or you catch yourself ending a discussion with "Because I'm the Mother that's why!" You have reached a new level of Motherhood and you know you have crossed the threshold in to advanced mommydom when:
-You count the sprinkles on each kids cupcake to make sure they are equal.
-You want to take out a contract on the kid who broke your son's favorite toy car and made him cry.
-You have time to shave only one leg at a time.
-You hide in the bathroom to be alone.
-Your child throws up and you catch it.
-You hope ketchup is a vegetable because it's the only one your child will eat.
-You find yourself cutting your husband's sandwiches into funny little shapes.
-You fast forward through the scene where the hunter shoots Bambi's Mother.
-You hear your Mother's voice coming out of you when you say, "Not in your good clothes."
-You stop criticizing the way your Mother raised you.
-You lose sleep.
-You read the average 5 year old asks 437 questions a day and feel proud that your child is "above average".
-You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.
-You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job" but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
