Things I Never Thought I'd Do..and then I became a Mom.

Personally, I have always believed I was ready for motherhood. I was ready to be selfless, sleepless and hot-body-less long before I actually had my daughter. Every now and then, though, I catch myself doing something and thinking " I really never thought I'd do that":

So here are some of my cringe-worthy, cute (?) & normal(??)

..I really never thought I'd...
-Get super pissed that Sesame Street doesn't make new episodes frequently
-Wish that leaving your kid in the car while running into 7-11 for snacks wasn't dangerous, illegal and stupid
-Feel that stores without drive-thrus ruin everything (ok..that's a blatant lie, I've thought about this for as long as I've been lazy)
-Drink from a sippy cup or bottle
-Let my kid watch an hour of Sesame Street just so I could get a little extra sleep
-Eat food that has been sucked on by my child, fallen out of her mouth or been found stuck to her or her clothing -Melt into a puddle of love every.single.time my daughter rests her head on my shoulder
-Not shower/change clothes immediately following a "vomit shower"
-Wish that forward facing car seats were safer
-Have my shirt double as a baby tissue (only when nothing appropriate is available...for the most part)
-Co-sleep (it may be the only reason I didn't experience severe sleep deprivation those first few months)
-Inspect a poopy diaper that "just looks weird"
-Try pureed meat

Just to name a few. I'm sure plenty more will come to me..probably enough to write another post.
So stay tuned!
