Mommy Memos

This is my personal list of true and seriously funny things I've learned, thought and done from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Most of these are my thoughts but a few are quotes I have found in various places over the last couple of years...... I will start posting Mommy Memos from now on, maybe once or twice a week when Baylor gives me the need to so keep watching for them.

  • your feet will never be the same.
  • it wasn't until I had my 1st child that I truly understood how much my mother loved me.
  • your motherly instinct kicks in before your child is even born.
  • it's okay to check on your infant 15 times in 2 hours if you don't hear a peep while they are sleeping.
  • the cry it out rule didn't work for me, but it may work for others.
  • no matter where you are, when the air hits the wee wee, the boys gonna pee pee.
  • you can never have too many bibs.
  • i don't care how I dress now, as long as my kid looks cute.
  • take in what advice you want and let the rest pass in one ear and out the other.
  • patience really is a virtue.
  • bath time is slippery.
  • you will fall in love with your baby's smell.
  • it's okay to turn away help; it's okay to ask for it too.
  • i wonder why something that gets pooped, peed in and thrown away cost so incredibly much?
  • spit up happens.
  • know matter how many times I watch the birth video, I cry every time!
  • pacifiers are soothing.... for the baby that is.
  • you feel you never truly existed until your 1st child is born.
  • people that say they "sleep like a baby" apparently don't have one.
  • there are never enough hours in the day to get things done or spend with your child.
  • i never thought i could see the cutest thing expel the grossest things.
  • i found reasons to wake him up, just so I could hold him.
  • the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world... w.r. wallace
  • i kiss my child goodnight, every night.
  • children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord... psalm 127:3.
  • only a mother understands what a child does not say.
  • you will never have to earn your child's love.
  • the 1st day of daycare is tough. take plenty of tissue.
  • i thought i did a lot of laundry before the baby came... ha!
  • always trust your instinct.
  • take out atleast 30 minutes for yourself each day; put yourself in time out :)
  • let daddy help.
  • just because they start "teething" doesn't mean they are "cutting teeth".
  • never stick your finger in a child's mouth with teeth just to see how many he has; it's like being attacked by Jaws.
  • every precious gift comes from above... james 1:17.
