A Day in the Life of Mom

     Mother's day is this weekend. The day where we are to celebrate and appreciate our mothers. And now that I'm a mother of two I've gained a little insight into what there is to appreciate in a mother's world.  So I decided to share a few things about moms. If you're a mom, you'll probably relate. If you're not a mom, maybe this will give you a little more appreciation for your mom.

  • You can do almost anything one handed. Literally, I have cooked entire meals and scrubbed bathrooms from top to bottom, all while holding an infant on my hip. It truly is a talent.
  • You say the same thing over and over again and expect different results...that's also the definition of insanity... interesting.
  • The moment you sit down to relax never fails to be the moment that all of your kids need something done that only you can do for them. Happens every. single. time. 
  • You think you are a patient mom, and then you stand there and watch your toddler try to zip their own jacket...
  • You hear your name 3,578 times in one day.
  • You spend the first 12 months of your child's life teaching them to walk and talk, and then the next several years teaching them to sit still and be quiet. 
  • You can completely ruin someone's day simply by telling them clothes are not optional. My brother's are teenagers and I think my mother still has to deal with this.
  • You haven't been able to stay awake and watch an entire tv episode since... how old is your oldest?... ya, since about 9 months before that.
  • You have the ability to hear a sneeze through closed doors, in the middle of the night, three bedrooms away, while your husband snores next to you.
  • The only time you can have some time to yourself is when you're in the bathroom, and even then, there are probably little fingers sticking under the door, and a little voice saying "mommy? I come in and be with you, mommy?"
  • You spend an entire day washing clothes and dishes only to walk around the house at the end of the day to find a sink full of dishes and a basket full of dirty clothes. It's like there are little creatures following you around undoing everything you do...oh, wait, that's because there are.
  • You go to bed at the end of the day feeling like you can't handle another day like that one, and then your toddler climbs in your bed, cuddles up to you, holds your face, and gives you a peck. And suddenly you just had the best day ever!
     So how are you going to celebrate your mom this weekend? I think she deserves it, don't you?


  1. Lol. So true on all points! But I never got the bathroom alone even... One time I had Sarah, our 3 cats and our dog sitting in the room with me! And next thing I know the hubby is in there too...saying "what's everyone doing?" So many sarcastic remarks wanted to fly out of my mouth right then! ��

  2. Haha! Very rarely do I actually end up alone either!

  3. You hit the nail on the head😁

  4. I was never able to do anything with only one hand. I always dropped the baby ... I mean ... oops!
