What It All Comes Down To…

A glimpse into the life of our family. Some ideas, insight, recipes, and crafts. Maybe a baby picture or two.

You Know You’re a Mom April 4, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — What It All Comes Down To @ 2:12 pm

When you can step in a puddle of urine and not even flinch.

When you painstakingly rip out the hem to baseball pants and painstakingly restitch them WITHOUT the offending elastic in order to frugally (cheaply) save $20 on a new pair.

When you allow chickens to reside in your kitchen.

When you get up at 6:30 AM (even though you don’t have to) in order to make fresh bread for you family because it’s Healthier.

When you worry about things like rashes, runny noses, naps, and appropriate teeth-brushing habits.

When you gain, and subsequently own, an extra 15 pounds from baking (and subsequently eating) and filling a cookie jar.  And keeping it that way at all times.

When you sleep with one ear and one eye open.

This list was compiled from events that occurred between 8:00 AM and 2:00 PM today.

  1. Grandma Says:

    I would add, when you have spent hours and hours praying for them

  2. Aunt Alison Says:

    I can only IMAGINE how much more you have to do those things when there are 4 little ones versus my single little old 1!! He makes me crazy enough worrying about doing things the RIGHT way and I can’t even imagine how difficult it is when you have 3 MORE to worry about on top of that!! You deserve at LEAST 4 pats on the back for all your hard work!! 🙂
