Things I really didnt comprehend before being a mom...

1. That this blog would be so neglected... sorry yall!
2. That I could become my own pet peeve and leave my toenails polish free for two weeks because I had no time to paint them!
3.The joy that I feel when Keating only wants his mama, although that can be frustrating at times!
4. How proud I could be over things like sleeping through the night, playing with his feet, rolling over...
5. That baby poop can shoot out at the speed of a fire hose.... and no diaper is going to stand up to that, no matter the brand!
6. Quiet car rides are a thing of the past. Singing with the radio has been replaced with shushing until I nearly pass out, driving with one arm in the back seat shaking the carseat or holding the paci in his mouth! Thank Heavens for the sleep sheep! I dont know how I have gone nearly 3 months without it!
7. Car seats are freaking heavy! Carrying him around is all the upper body workout I need!
8. Watching him sleep is so wonderful. I will sneak into his room and watch him and take in his intoxicating baby smell.
9. I should have bought stock in Energizer Batteries before having kids. These gadgets, toys, swings, mobiles... ALL EAT BATTERIES!!!
10. Seeing my husband interact with Keating can melt my heart!
11. I never thought I would be wearing the Bjorn dancing around the kitchen, singing any song I can think of to keep him from crying while I make dinner. I'm sure I look like a complete idiot!
12. When he smiles at me, it is such a feeling of complete joy!
13. As much as I want this time to last forever, I cant wait to see him as he grows up.
14. How selfless being a mother is
15. How much more I would appreciate and understand my own mom after being one myself.

...and that's all I have time for now because he is fussing!


  1. If this were facebook I would "like" this post a million times! It's so true isn't it?! It's crazy! You feel like you are the only person in the world that could ever feel this way about another human and then you read a post like this about another mom talking about her baby and it just puts a smile on my face!! Your little boy is so adorable by the way!!


  2. Wow, this is such a great post! And as a mother, I completely agree with every single one. :) Good luck on your daily work-out...it's the best kind, and free too, even better. :)

  3. aww--you made me cry!! hope you have a great first Mother's Day!

  4. What a sweet post. If only we had realized as kids how much our mothers loved us. I really love seeing people who are so in love with their children, because I know it doesn't always happen that way.

  5. I am so proud of you! You are the best mom to my grandson! It makes me smile to think that I actually did a few things right raising you. (I guess I will be getting a really good Mothers Day present :) haha.) I hope your first Mothers Day is a great one! I love you!

  6. I love this post sweet friend! What a great mom you are!

  7. Ack my fingernails are never polished anymore, I hate it!

    But you are right on with this stuff, very nice post :)

  8. Aww such a sweet post :) I hate unpolished toenails too & mine are polishless right now too haha!
