One of my favorite things ever is soliciting feedback on Facebook. Last week I was thinking about all the random things I’ve experienced with motherhood so far and many of them made me laugh out loud and think, “Did I ever imagine I would be laughing about these situations?”
I’m only 18 months into motherhood and already it has been a riot. But I have to wonder…What’s to come?
I sent my fellow mom Facebook fans a challenge to write me a response to the following statement: You don’t know motherhood until _______________. The responses I got were so awesome, I just knew I had to make a post to include them all – some absolutely hysterical and some just darn beautiful. Here’s what the gals had to say:
You don’t know motherhood until _________.
Mrs. Weber’s Neighborhood: You have fished toys out of the toilet and re-wrapped the toilet paper roll for the 4th time in a day.
Mrs. Weber’s Neighborhood: You pull poop out of a constipated newborn’s butt…
Deanna: You watch such a simple, everyday act — such as your daughter dragging around a toy bin with determination in her eyes so she can set up shop across the room — and have your heart swell with pride and love.
The Mom with Moxie: You find a Hot Wheel, coated in smushed grapes, in the bottom of your purse. It’s happened more than once.
How fabulous are all of these?!
What would you say to complete the sentence “You don’t know motherhood until __________.” Make us all laugh more!
