New talents I never thought I would aquire….Thanks to Mother Hood.
-Awaking at any hour of the night and being able to find a binki, make a bottle, or give the correct dosage of medicine. Ect.
-Applying makeup in the car. Sometimes over the old makeup I was too exhausted to take off the night before.
-Breastfeeding. This still shocks me that they feed off my own body!!
-Dressing children for church that starts at 9am in the morning.
-Washing insane amounts of clothes.
-Cooking (Just ask the Band how much I have improved. But I still occasionally burn toast.)
-Bathing when only absolutely necessary(this usually means 2-3pm daily-during naps)
-Being thrown up on and not even gagging. I am not sure anyone else but my children could do this. No I am not willing to test the theory.
-I could play professional soccer with all the practice I get kicking canned goods so they stop rolling down the grocery store isle.
-I can now set a schedule and maintain it with ease.
-Photos with my digital camera.
-Sewing PJ’s, Blankets, and Pencil cases.
-Eating large amounts of cereal Fruity O’s if you must know is this week’s fav.
There are so many more. Notice patience is still not listed. I was cleaning out my kid’s room- The room Thing 2 has yet to sleep in for an week straight - & I came across their baby blessing outfits.
**These are when they are newly born and recieve a blessing in our church. They are customarily wearing white. AND tiny.
Instantly I was hit with the pangs of Baby HUNGER!! The little fingers and toes nuzzled close to your cheek. The way they curl up so softly into a ball and rest on your chest. Infant clothes, Breastfeeding, warm squishy scentless pooh in tiny diapers. The new baby smell. Night time sink baths. The naps. Oh, the many many naps with out fighting. Whispy, tiny eyelashes. Bright blue eyes. Hand socks that prevent them from scratching themselves.
(Distant, faint, growing louder)
Thing 1: "No! NO! NO! La-LA!! MINE!!!"
*And baby hunger satisfied.*
On with the cleaning, organizing, and straightening.
