Happy Mother's Day to ME!

Finally, another holiday besides my birthday to celebrate ME!!!

All kidding aside, I really had a good Mother's Day. And not just because it started with three mimosas. The last year really has been overwhelming amazing (even though a lot of it blurs together…) Ben and I worked so hard and spent so much money to have the opportunity to be parents and now, here we are. I could not be happier or more proud of my first Mothers Day.

So, in honor of all you mamas out there, I have written down all the things I have said in the last year, that I would have never even thought about only one-year-ago.

10: “Sleep? Who needs it?”

9: “She ripped off her diaper and pooped in her crib? I’ll take care of it when she wakes up, and not a second before.”

8. “I know I said I would never feed her processed foods and I know I judged you for feeding your kid KRAFT, but desperate times call for desperate measures.”

7. “Of course I’ll be on time. If ‘on time’ means 45 minutes late.”

6. “My favorite spot to hang out? Why the zoo of course. Duh.”

5. “Quit looking at me like that, the ice cream she is eating is dairy free. Geez, people without kids are SO judgmental.”

4. “Don’t put that in your mouth!!”

3. “Let’s just cuddle, I’m so tired. In fact, let’s not even do that. Let’s just go to sleep.”

2. “No, I don’t know what ‘dika dika dik, boopa doopa do’ means, but it makes her smile so wipe that smirk off your face.”

1. “Between cleaning a yard full of dog poop up and changing a bunch of diapers, I have so much shit in my life that I really don’t have time for yours.”

I salute all you moms out there and those of you still trying!!! It's worth the journey.
