I’ve learnt a lot in the 20 months since becoming a mother……….

I’m not perfect.

I do yell.

I do loose my patience.

I leave the house a mess.

I forget things………..A lot.

I often put my husband last 😦

I drink wine.

I still smoke 1 cigarette a day.

I sometimes give my child processed food.

But out of all the things I’ve listed above, the things I’ve learnt and the mother I’ve become……..outweigh them.

I have learnt that crumbs in the corner don’t make me a bad mom.

I’ve learnt that seeing my child smile will always make me tear up.

I’ve learnt that the bed looks better unmade 🙂

I’m now know that being a mother is the most important job in the world.

I’ve learnt that dust is my friend.

I’ve learnt that my husband truly is my best friend and biggest support system.

I now know that I’m always going to need Mommy time.

I now know that Mommy time makes me a better mother.

I’ve learnt that watching my daughter learn something is by far the greatest reward in life.

I now know that my being responsible for another life is more draining than running 10 miles!

Maddie and I had an awesome day today. I don’t know why. We just did. I often sit back and think about the day and try to remember what I did so the next day I can do it again so we always have good days, but then I remember, that’s probably not going to happen!! She wasn’t whiny, she walked while holding my and without an argument, she only got on the kitchen table once LOL, she was a good girl when she got her ear re-peirced. She was good while I shopped, she napped well. We even sat for a whole 10 minutes and did a puzzle together, don’t laugh this is huge for her. This is what started my day…….how can you not smile and hug this kid??

Then daddy came home and that was the end of that, am I the only one out their has her husband come home and your kiddo turns into a nightmare?? WHY??????? WHY is that?????? OMG!!!
