Lest everyone think I am a bitter mommy, who can’t wait to have my kids grown up and gone, I have compiled a list of the things I love about being a mommy and things I love about my kids in general.
Obviously, this will be followed by a list of things that really make me want to guzzle a bottle of gin at the end of the day. Wait I’m not really a gin drinker….it kind of makes me
slightly angry a bit different a complete bitch from hell. Let’s change that to one a few beers, or a modest glass bottle of Zin. Okay, on to the list!
Things I love:
Max asking me “Mommy, is this a picture of Obama?” while he points to a picture of George Washington. I laughed so hard I peed a little.
Zoe yelling “Woo! woo! woo!” every time she sees a dog. It sounds absolutely nothing like woof woof.
Teeny tiny butts.
Watching Max take a shower and wash his own hair while singing and using approximately four gallons of baby wash/shampoo.
Zoe taking off at a high-speed run, hysterically laughing, the second she’s nude.
Max making his bed and getting dressed without me asking, even though he’s dressed in corduroys and a sweater on a 95 degree day.
Max coming up to me right now and whispering “Mommy, daddy said to keep it a secret that we just ate donuts”
Seeing Max swim without fear.
Seeing Zoe float on her back in the deep end at the age of 2.
Watching Zoe pick out her own clothes for the day, which consists of two shirts and one sock. And sparkly shoes.
Max grabbing on to his testicle and saying “Mommy, whats this?”
Zoe’s spider monkey routine–she holds on to me so strongly with her arms and legs that I don’t even have to hold on to her. I can practically cook a cake with her clinging to me.
Things I need wine to deal with:
The fact that my kids never have this look on their faces when I serve them food
These gorgeous moments
See how many more “likes” I have than dislikes? Well that’s only because I just had some drinks. Just kidding. Maybe.
