Momism #4: Sleep Deprivation

Momism 4

This is the type of thing I didn’t used to think was possible.   It’s amazing what types of changes in perception you gain as you become a parent.

Especially with a toddler and a newborn at the same time.

I’ve had two kids for over a year and a half now, but when I say things like, “I’m lucky I remember my own name,” I actually mean it.

Momisms #3: Neverland

Momism 3

Yeah … I used to know the words to grown-up songs.

Now my life is consumed with kid songs.

Sometimes that’s okay, like when my 3-year-old spontaneously bursts into the ABC Song, while her younger sister dances along.  I love that they love that song.

But one day, after repeated requests from my daughter to sing the words to the Dinosaur Train or Doc McStuffins songs, I found that those were the only songs I could remember the words to.

Granted, since then I’ve incorporated more songs into our repertoire, but I still find myself randomly chanting, “Yo ho – let’s go!”

It’s a common hazard of motherhood.  :)

Momisms #2: Mashed Potatoes

Momism 2

True story.  Seriously.

When this happened, I remember thinking, “Huh.  I guess it got there while I was unbuckling my toddler from her chair after dinner.”

After a quick check for more, I quickly dismissed it from my mind.  I mean, I’d be showering soon enough anyway, right?  And really, mashed potatoes are not the worst thing, by far, that my kids have gotten on me…

Momisms #1: Mini Vacations

Momism 1

This references an older post, “Mommy’s Mini Vacation”.  I decided to start making my own “Momisms.”  These will be inspired by real life.

I’m hoping it’s something other moms can relate to.  And that it inspires a few laughs.  After all, ours is a crazy, wonderful life, and one thing us moms have all had to learn is that if you don’t laugh at yourself, you’ll go crazy.

Or more crazy than you already are.

Either way, enjoy this Momism … there will be more to follow in future posts!  :)
