Here are some things I've learned in the past 7 weeks of being a mom of two. Some I am sure you can identify with if you have kids, and some may be specific to my own little people.
*Sleep is a luxury, and my oh my how I love it!
*Smart time management is critical, for mine and also the entire family's sanity.
*If cleanliness is next to godliness then I sure am glad God loves the ungodly!
*Not giving Daisy a bath immediately following dinner is key...unless I find that I really enjoy scrubbing out the tub on every bath night.
*I should not leave the lunch fixin's out on the counter because frankly, thinking "I'll be right back to get seconds" is no more than a joke.
*Getting "firsts" on meals is an accomplishment.
*There really is a whole lot you can do while nursing. I'll just leave that one at that.
*It really is true that half the stuff you say you'll never do when you have kids suddenly becomes not so taboo.
*Oh, how I appreciate my husband more and more! I could not do this without him!
*Your pets really do become "just pets" after you have kids. And their status drops lower and lower with each new addition.
*While a clean house still enables me to relax and breathe easier, I find it's a little less important most days.
And the number one thing is something I have not necessarily learned recently but is something that has just been reinforced....I was BORN to do this! I don't say that because I think I'm the cat's pajamas when it comes to being a stay at home mom. I say it because I am finally happy and fulfilled with what I am doing! There was a time when I didn't think becoming a mother was going to happen for me. I was devastated. But by the grace of God all of that changed! I love being a momma, and I will be one for the rest of my life!
