May 12, 2008

You know all kids are home schooled. Even if they go to public school, they are still home schooled. I just figured I'd through that in there just in case anyone says to you, "Homeschool....Oh, I could never do that".

Several things I learned in 7 years & 10 months of Motherhood.

  1. You know more than you give yourself credit for.
  2. Parent Magazines and secular advise is almost always a waste of time.
  3. Having tons of kids does not make you more holy.
  4. Sometimes its okay to have cereal for dinner.
  5. It takes at least a year to get back to prepregnancy size.
  6. You have to loose a little more weight to fit into those prepregnancy clothes even if you have lost your prepregnancy weight.
  7. Stay far away from people who have 1 child and complain about that one.
  8. Chocolate is full of calcium a woman needs for strong bones and teeth.
  9. Reality TV is overrated.
  10. Moms need at least 3 bubble baths a week to maintain a certain level of sanity and femininity.
  11. Its okay to get dressed at 2 in the afternoon.
  12. Kids will always make noise even when you don't want them to.
  13. Your minivan will inevitably turn into a purse on wheels.
  14. Diet should not be in your vocabulary if you are nursing.
  15. Breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day!

I'm sure there are more things I have learned but, since Dolly got up at three this morning and I got up with her and stayed up and took cat naps until 6 something I can't remember it all let alone type it all.
