Sit on the couch for 2 hours with a sleeping baby in your lap unable to eat, pee, or drink anything but totally willing to be there because he is actually asleep!

On that note, do ANYTHING to get your kids to sleep. (or eat!)
Oh my gawd Mama Willow- I could have written that word for word.....I actually do this everynight!

Re: When you are a mommy, you will ...

Finally learn what a "real hug" is.

Feel like the most important person in the world.

Realize you CAN'T do everything but it sure feels good to have someone think you can.

Love harder than you ever have before.

Be more scared than you ever have been before.

Laugh, cry & yell in the same sentence.

Stay awake JUST to look at your sweet angel sleeping.

Get up 15 times in one night just to make sure someone is breathing.

Learn how to "tread water" in laundry instead of totally "drowning" in it.

Learn how well you & your husband really work together.

Aren't children such a blessing? *happy sigh*

You wonder things like "Why are these cooked beans laying in the corner of the kitchen floor?" like I am right now. (Nowhere near the table or where they were served from )

LOL I did that just today, and my baby is 3! If I laid there long enough for him to be asleep I'd get TWO HOURS to myself, if I got up before he was asleep I'd have a whiny clingy child for the rest of the day. NO BRAINER LOL

DEFINATELY take back all the "my kids will never../ if i were her mom, i would never let her../i cant believe she just..."

understand and love and respect your parents in a whole new light

think that other people just wont understand your p.o.v in child-rearing until they have their own

get facinated over baby's bodily fluid colors

just sit and think about how much you love your children 24/7 and even when they did the most wicked thing imaginable, you take a back seat and think "they are, afterall, just children!"

You may be down three lamps and your vacuum cleaner might be full of tapioca, all in one day... (for example), but you still can't stop taking pictures of sweet faces

You can't wait for bed time to roll around, then when it does you can't stop cuddling your little angels

cook 3 different meals for dinner time

become the ultimate multi-tasker

never get a good nights sleep again.

Re: When you are a mommy, you will ...

realize you will probably never go to the bathroom by yourself again

hugs are the most wonderful things in the world

even when they are being "bad" it is the cutest thing in the world

Re: When you are a mommy, you will ...

Begin to use the words "potty" & "pee pee" in everyday conversation, much to your embarassment!!

Cry more happy tears than ever before!

Have stale goldfish in the bottom of your "purse".

Have to really think about when the last time you washed your hair was...or shaved your legs...(or is it just me?).

Automatically scan the room every minute or so to make sure everyone is still there, especially if it's extra quiet.

Walk into another person's house and immediatly start putting "chokies" and breakables on higher surfaces. I do ask permission but as I am doing it!
