Confessions of a Hard-core Mommy

   The many wonderful ways raising a toddler has changed my life:
  1. I enjoy a good peanut butter-and-sprinkles sandwich.
  2. I use scribble-stix in the shower.
  3. I head straight for the toy department when I enter any store.
  4. I no longer use the restroom. I go potty.
  5. There’s only one "Steve" on television.
  6. And he ranks high on my list of CILFs. (Celebrities I’d like to…)
  7. That list also includes a few cartoon characters.
  8. I can often be heard singing tunes from "Follow That Bird".
  9. I would rather listen to these songs than any music on the radio.
  10. Mia’s room is my favorite room of the house.
  11. I will play with a ladybug for hours.
  12. My idea of a goodnight’s sleep is waking up only 3 times between midnight and 6:00 a.m.
  13. I am a lean, mean, block-tower-building machine.
  14. My snack of choice is animal crackers.
  15. I have colored my toenails with a fat purple marker.
  16. Superman would kill for my sense of hearing.
  17. It is not unusual for me to sport a temporary tatoo of Elmo.
  18. I am not afraid to wear slippers to the grocery store…..what?
  19. On our anniversary, my husband and I chose to see a kids’ movie.
  20. I can do anything, and I mean ANYTHING, with one hand.

    Woo Hoo!  You are a one hard core mommy!  I catch myself doing these things again with my baby sis’s little ones and it’s such fun.  Okay is CILF similar to MILF? hehe.  You are one great mommy girl.

    Isn’t it great how kids change our whole life!  I have to admit, I haven’t worn my slippers out in public …yet.  You have some great new pictures posted.  Your daughters are too cute!!
    Hope you are having a great weekend!
    ps: the reason for all the bird flu articles is because I’m paranoid that we’ll be struck without means to protect ourselves.  oh and …the Christmas countdown …I love Christmas and I start counting down on Dec 26th :)

    you are seriously America’s Next Top Model –errr- Mommy… You are
    awesome!!  I have been known to wear slippers to the grocery store, gas
    station, Wal Mart, etc.  I usually try to clothe myself properly for
    Tar-get’ – cuz you know, that’s upscale and all!!

    I don’t have any kids but I could well imagine how they would change my life………I would probably need to take a class to be a hard core mommy like you (smile)!  The pics of the family are toooooo cute – you should be very proud.
    I am right outside of Dallas, TX……..loving it here, but not sure where I will end up once I finish my degree next year………..I should know by December, though. 
    Have a lovely Sunday!

    Oh I loved this.  Isn’t a little bit of humor so great to get us through the day.  I so remember my days being filled that way.  Soon though you will be talking about boys and music with your girls wondering where those other days went.

    lol @ I can do anything with one hand .. lol.
    And, I refuse to comment on the letters CILF on the grounds that it will ruin my pristine online reputation .. lol.
    But, be the first to call me a NILF, then I think I will be yours forever .. lol.
