1. I will loose the baby weight IMMEDIATELY, how hard can it be??
- How hard indeed. You gain 45lbs, birth a 7 pounder and all the fun stuff that comes along with him and loose 3 pounds...wait....WHAT?!?!? Ok actually I lost ten pounds that day and with breastfeeding proceeded to loose 26 in two weeks. I was ON FIRE....look at me 26 lbs in 2 weeks?! Lets just say 18 months later when I got preggo with Lia I was still waiting to loose the remaining 20lbs lol.
2. I will dress cool
- Cool = not functional. I want white jeans........I'm not wearing white jeans.
3. I will never go out in yoga pants.
- I own 10 pairs of Yoga pants.....
4. I will not spend all day in my pajamas
- Sometimes I wonder what the bus driver thinks when 7 hours after I put my son on the bus....I'm still wearing the same outfit.....and then the next morning I'm STILL wearing it....which brings me to
5. I will not fall asleep with my clothes on
- That's something drunk college kids do.....I will mature and put on pajamas. This year my new years resolution was not to loose weight or be healthy, it was to NOT fall asleep in my regular clothes. Like all resolutions....it lasted a month.
6. I will not be a short order cook
- Who wants waffles for dinner?!? Oh you want cereal and you want chicken....here you go enjoy!
7. I will stay manicured and groomed
- Showering daily happens if I'm lucky.....my hair is always up because my lion mane gets tangled in babies. Make-up goes unworn because I'm so naturally beautiful.....or in actuality because I m lucky I remember to put my glasses on, forget about Make-up. I am now that insane looking mom I swore I would never be.
8. I will not be a helicopter parent
- sounds good. sure I wont be on the playground equipment with them but I'm also not 30 feet away on a bench. let them fall they say, its good for them to get hurt they say......well as a kid
I knew someone who fell from playground equipment and was in a half body cast for 2 months. So, I'm hovering near by....Sorry
9. I will NEVER get a minivan
- Well there is Big Red.......the kids love the van....so I love the van too. That being said...when the kids get bigger I'm getting an Explorer again, end of story.
10. I will be involved in ALL school activities.
- I have never made it to ONE parents association meeting. Never, I have tried but I always forget, or someone throwing up. I'm angry at myself, I want to be the overly involved mom....I'm not, or at least not yet.
11. I will still keep my circle of children less friends
- I still love my friends without kids more then anything, but eventually I'm too tired and emotionally old to go out till 4 am or 2 am or crap 12am. When I get out those rare times /i feel weird because..........well to #12
12. I will not ONLY talk about my kids
- I feel weird because all I know to talk about is kids and their kid things.....throw in some Autism and I'm a social mess around people with no kids. I walk away from those nights kicking myself for not being able to hold a simple conversation that doesn't involve kids.
13. I will never drink box wine....
-and with that I say cheers. Me and my cheap wine are off to celebrate the last 3.5 hours of Mothers Day :)
