"...Real World Insights for Profoundly Imperfect Mothers"
(shotty iPhone pic)
I got that book from someone at one of my babyshowers. Im sorry to say I can not remember who got it for me, seeing as E is almost 2 (WOW how time flies).
Anyhoodle- I totally forgot about this FANTASTIC book until a few days ago when I found it while I was doing some slight cleaning, in preparation for all the packing I will be doing for my impending move.
When I got it I remember flipping through it, but I was still in school and E was born very soon after my shower so with the hustle and bustle I got busy and the book got pushed aside.
If you have a babyshower for anyone coming up I recommend this as a gift for mom, its a cute lil something. I got this book for a friend of mine b/c I remembered thinking it was funny. I know she enjoyed it.
Well a few days ago when I found it I decided to re-flip through it & I couldn't stop laughing. Even if you're not a mother, you will find some of these "insights" funny. Over they next couple of weeks I will be posting more from the book so keep checking back.
Enjoy: (you dont get the full effect w/o the cute pics)
-I still buy cute underwear, but not too cute because what do you think got me into this mess?
-There's no place like home, unless you can get a baby-sitter. Then, Go! Get out! Hurry!
-The longest distance between two points is a 2-year-old who wants to walk all by herself. (my fav)
-Moms need friends, because you gotta have someone you can cuss in front of. DAMMIT!!!
-Those last 5 post-baby pounds are IMPOSSIBLE to Lose! Especially when you haven't lost the first 20.
-Weird how having a baby makes you remember to take that birth control pill. And sometimes TWO, just in case.
-Yeah, I'd say being a mom has changed my style. Obliterated is a change, right?
-So, if I become a stay-at-home mom, does that mean the kids have to stay home, too? -Just checking.
and lastly (for this week)...
-Wow... I must've kidproofed the cleaning supply cabinet a little too well. Apparently my husband can't get into it.
Hope everyone is having a great (cyber)monday...
