Being a Mom Means...


Taking your Christmas lights down months after Christmas is over.
Letting the backyard slowly evolve into a forest.
Making the decision between arriving to work on time or getting the spit-up off you.
Giving up your morning radio for "The Wheels on the Bus."
Feeling guilty for taking a day to yourself.
Raising your voice a few octaves.
Planning showers around naps and wake-ups.
Taking a gazillion photos.
Crying from sheer exhaustion.
Always wanting an updated photo of you with the little guy (hey he changes minute to minute).
Having regular conversations about poop with your husband.
Planning "couple time."..."Um, I have some availability next Thursday."
Having to have a babysitter to go the movies.
Realizing dogs are just dogs...important dogs...but dogs none-the-less.
Squeezing blogging in around naps, bed-time, and errands with the hubby.
Deciding who's going to get to have a glass of wine or beer.
Finding a moment when your little guy is distracted to RUN...literally...RUN to put something in the wash.
Having conversations with your friends where they're distracted by the baby and you just keep talking...hey...if you don't get it in, who knows when you will?!?
Wondering what you've gotten yourself into.
Wondering what you did before a baby.
Experiencing love at first sight.
Moving mountains to ensure your baby can do whatever he wants!!!

OH MY GOSH, NO!!!! We just took ours down a few weeks ago and I thought we were the last ones on the street. I didn't even notice yours because I was so worried about ours.
