TGIF! It's funny how that term invoked such a different feeling during my pre-parenting days.
Mamas, can I get a hallelujah--or perhaps a large caffeinated latte?
So for those of you who follow along on my social media outlets you may have seen I was hanging out some where fun this week. A few months ago I was contacted by an individual over at the site
What to Expect--yes, that What to Expect, the site behind the bible of all pregnancy guides. The one that warned you about cankles and peeing your pants when you sneezed.
They wanted me to share how I was able to keep up with my DIY projects now that I am raising a little human.
I get asked this question A LOT which is humorous because despite producing milk and changing diapers, which don't get me wrong is a craft within itself, I really don't feel like I've accomplished much in the area of do-it-yourself projects and crafts lately. However, I have managed to squeeze in a few things here and there so make sure to stop on by to see my tips and tricks on
While writing my guest blog post for WTE (that's what we cool people refer to it as) it had me thinking about how despite all the warnings and advice on what to expect once you pop out your spawn there are a few things that people REALLY don't tell you. So I've taken it upon myself to put together a list for you because I am really nice like that.
1. It will take you three hours to watch a half-hour show.
2. No more matter how solid of a relationship you and your significant other have, you will think about burying them in the backyard at least five times a week.
3. Your definition of a "clean house" will change.
4. You will have to teach your baby how to sleep.
The other morning at like 2:00 am, or maybe it was 3:30 am (who the hell keeps tabs anymore?)
I walked in to find Baby B on all fours, laughing.......and then I think his head may have spun around.
Apparently, he thought it was an awesome time to practice crawling.
5. You will try to cram all your adult responsibilities in
between the time your baby goes to bed and wakes up.
6. You will consider just moving your master bedroom into your laundry room.
7. Running an errand with a baby is like coordinating a rocket launch to Mars.
8. You will learn that topics such as parenting styles can be just as heated as politics and religion.
If you ever want to see a group of mommies go ape-poop just raise subjects such as breastfeeding vs. formula, working vs. stay-at-home, vaccinations, and Callilou.
9. You will love your child so much it hurts.
10. You will discover that side effects of sleep deprivation closely resemble that of a psychopath.
