You know you're a mom of 2 under 2 when...

I'm sure many of these apply to parenting in general, in fact, I know they do --but, when you have 2 under 2 these are more like Laws of the Universe.

  • Sitting down to "rest" means you've just created an extra seat for someone smaller than you
  • EveRY WorD You Say iS enunciated MORE strongly to encourage SPeecH
  • Hopes of a "hot" meal are traded in for hopes of a "lukewarm" meal, yet you aren't surprised when your meal is room temperature or cold.
  • Speaking of meals, you don't actually sit down to eat without jumping up 15 bazillion times to get another spoon, napkin, fork, piece of food, fill a sippy cup, get a crying baby, get a burp cloth, oh you forgot a drink for yourself, oh the phone is ringing, the baby is crying again, your toddler needs more food now, or your toddler decided to dump the plate on their head....phew...did you even get to take a bite yet??
  • you plan your shower around 2 sleeping children so you can actually enjoy it.
  • sleeping through the night is more of a parental milestone than a childhood one.
  • you become oblivious to the formula/spitup/animal cracker smeared on your shirt.
  • of course -- you get double the smiles, double the giggles, double the hugs and kisses (drool included)

thats it for now...I'm most certain I will be adding to this list...a lot.
