Misconceptions About Mommyhood: Part I

Do you ever think back to the little scenarios that played through your head when you were pregnant? Whether they were concerns you had or things you imagined doing with your children, when you look at your life now, how do they compare? Eventually we all have our own realizations with which we must come to terms.

1) There is no pitter-patter of little feet. It is more like a herd of rampaging elephants or rhinos.

2)After having children all of your bad habits will fall by the wayside in your quest of being the perfect mother. Yeah, right, maybe in the little world that exists in the far recesses of your mind or the lalaland that you visit while dreaming. Nope, I still eat chocolate chip cookies for breakfast (on occasion, like this morning...does it count that they were homemade?), don't exercise as much as I should, and am still a procrastinator.

3)You will not eat the food off of your little ones plate at least not until they are much older. First, because they will mash it in their little hands and then put it in their mouths and proceed to spit it back out onto their plate. Yech!

4)Yes, you to will have your backyard become a plastic jungle. No backyard mommy oasis exists here.
