This Will Be Funny In 10 Years...
This will be funny in ten years.....
~The precocious, vivacious, possibly genius toddler who learned to open the fridge.....and of course, prefers to play with the raw eggs.
~The stain right on the stomach of all maternity shirts.
~Realizing that the toddler (who you were fool enough to leave un-diapered for two minutes) has pooped, asking her where she pooped, and then turning around to go look for it only to realize that you just found out where she pooped. And you are standing in it. At least you were wearing socks. And the carpet is already old.
~Getting angry about car seats on a Facebook page with people you have never met before.
~The irony of realizing that you (in your ultimate positive attitude) gave away all large maternity clothes. You were thinking "Oh, I won't get that big this time." Now you are in your third trimester and have grown out of hubby's scrubs. Oops. Good thing sweat pants never go out of style..... Right?
~The daily dumping of magazines and books onto the floor by the toddler. (I know, she comes up a lot. Something about toddlers.)
~The ripped, smelly, stained, small and decidedly ugly couch that has survived many moves, urination, vomiting, couple fights (makes a nice bed for guy in the dog house) and even the birth of a child, that is the focal point of your TV room.
~Five people (one of them heavily pregnant) in a full size bed.
~Not being able to sleep (does anybody else get third trimester insomnia?!) on the night that above mentioned toddler ACTUALLY sleeps!? ACK!
~Plumber's crack. Not the plumber. Not the husband. No- it is yours. (In my defense- I have no waist right now and my pants just don't stay up.)
~Buying a Suburban because it will fit all your kids and it is a great deal, only to have gas prices rise to FOUR dollars a gallon shortly thereafter. Actually, this may never be funny.
~A three year old who wets herself because, "Mommy, I want to wear a different dress!" but has been potty trained for a few years.
Is it possible that finding joy in this journey means... laughing at it now? Here is to finding the humour in every day. Good luck mamas.
