"Lippy" or "mouthy" is just a phase, right?
"I am not going to survive her attitude!" -- Real Mom
We're pretty sure she got that 'tude from her father, right? #BlameDad
Ever wonder how you're able to "mom"?
"I can't believe that I have kept her alive this long!" -- Real Mom
It's because you're a rock star, momma. Rock. Star.
Mom-ing evolves over the years...
"I now say things like 'you have to wear underwear to school.'" --Real Mom
Wearing clothing is burdensome...
Kids are observant. They ask questions, quite frankly...
"My daughter asked 'Mommy, how do I pee out of my thumb like daddy?' The downside of one bathroom, and the beginning of taking turns." -- Real Mom
We have more questions now about dad and his "thumb", and... we won't be able to sleep tonight...
When your it'll-do-for-now explanation makes things more interesting...
"I was telling my son to get his hand out of his pants or "it" would fall off. He got quiet for a minute and runs into his sister's room and says... 'Hey, Sissy, I know why you don't have a pee pee anymore!'" -- Real Mom
There's nothing like the love you receive from your child. That brutal, honest, love...
"My son once told me, 'I like that you are so jiggly, but fat people can't be pretty.'" -- Real Mom
When they're quiet, something's up...
"My son was upstairs being quiet. When I went to investigate, he was in his new kitty's litter box, seated, in his footie pajamas treating it like a sandbox. Throwing the dirty litter out." -- Real Mom
Perhaps it was a bit of role playing... Ugh...
Those first few years with your kids are especially precious and memorable. For many reasons...
"I say to my son 'We really need to start working on learning your letters." (He is 3.) He says 'Yeah! That way I can learn how to spell butt crack!' Lord help me!" -- Real Mom
Thank goodness he only wants to spell "butt crack"... #victory
Kids will walk down the 'curious trail' without care...
"I find that I say things like. 'Don't lick the cat' and 'Pencils do not belong in belly buttons' more than I should." -- Real Mom
If the pencil fits, you must... oh, never mind...
Putting things where they don't belong. Isn't that soooo kid?
"Why is there a hot dog in the VCR?" -- Real Mom
We think a PB & jelly sandwich would fit better...
