Things That amaze Me

Things that amaze me…


That my four year old can’t pee in the pot without spraying the whole bathroom..Yet he can turn on wii by himself and is a master at Super Mario.

That my six year old can change the names of contacts in my phone..my husband is now listed as….Evil Dad

That my house always looks like a tornado tore through it even if I clean all day.

That I don’t have the body of a supermodel since all I do is chase kids all day and live off of left over chicken nuggets and peas that have fallen off the plate.

That I can go months without checking my eyebrow growth or unshaved legs since I had kids. (I don’t even want to talk about my underarms..)

That I have not taken a shower without someone in the bathroom staring at me since 2002.

That poop vomit and boogers are just everyday occurrences.

That I haven’t listened to the radio, my I pod or any other adult song for forever and I am actually enjoying The Imagination Movers, Handy Manny’s theme song and I am infatuated by Wa Wa Wubsy.

That I write my shopping list with Big Crayola crayons

That my LARGE purse is filled with everything from action figures to socks.. and yesterday when I went to go to the pharmacy I noticed a pair of Superman underwear.

That my friends actually text or facebook me now because… who can hear a phone conversation with the noise level in my house?

That I have probably paid for my pediatricians shore house because I’m there so much.

That every time my hubby and I are feeling amorous someone.. “can’t sleep, had a bad dream or needs a glass of water..”

That I better enjoy it now… because time flies!!!!!

I keep trying to remember that time flies...everyone says it, but when i'm knee deep in strawberry milk, well, it's tough! Thanks for joining my blog. Checked your out. Pretty cool. Love the bitch bagel...

It's all good! And I bet you wouldn't trade in any of it!

Tami said...

LOL, I LOVE YOUR LIST!
Instead of me having superman underwear, I now have their wallets, keys, and cell phones.

Noise levels only get worse when you have a 21 yo, 18 yo, and a soon to be 7 yo. We never just talk.. we yell when we talk.
Neighbors don't understand that Italians and Latino's do that LOL.

I wasn't mad.. I was talking. neighbor looks sheepishly over at his wife..

Oooh.. we thought you were fighting. HA. Mr. Crabit's.

so true!!! some of those same things amaze me as well - what did mothers do w/o facebook when we were growing up? Did they just stop talking to their friends?

Robin said...

That is so true enjoy it, cringe at the next stages, laugh at all the antics, and hug them while they will let you, journal the journey, and prepare for the tears when they decide that college away from home is better...They say empty nest happens when all the kids are gone...nope I actually miss all the teens hanging around...the loud music and the antics of how much can I get away with and being shocked when caught....Even though I still have Barbies, Jonas Brothers, Pet shop games, High School Musical and Disney princesses to keep me entertained..I miss the other kids.. :o)..
Huggs,
Robin

LOL I think it's a boy thing. My son is 9 and he still sprays all over the toilet. Mostly because he holds it for so long and then rushes to pee. LOL I'm laughing because that was the random thought of the day to which i posted on my blog yesterday. lol

Thanks for visiting, I hope you come back!

Momma Such said...

Ha ha! Great post! I can so relate to everything you just stated! But I must agree, time sure does fly when you have kids. We go through our whole childhood wanting to be older and then when we get older we wish we were younger! And why is it that we don't have the body of a supermodel? We really should with all of the running little boys make us do! ha ha! You gave me a good laugh for the day...thanks! :)

I'm amazed that my six-year old can never remember the things I tell him repeatedly every day, but he can remember that two weeks ago, I promised him pizza and a movie.

Ali said...

I had a pair of Spiderman underwear AND Thomas the Train underwear in my purse over the weekend!

JulieChats said...

So funny, just spent the morning cleaning poop off the baby, his clothes one of my towels & the floor of my bedroom, totally understand! :)

Brandy said...

Baking Momma said...

Hey Natalee,

Thanks for joining my blog. I have to say you are too funny girl. But I know what you mean. I can agree with almost all of what you wrote. Mine is 12 and a little man. But my purse is filled with psp and games. Cell Phone and what other junk he wants to throw in there and then I am wondering why my shoulder hurts. I could really swap some stories with you. lol

Thanks for the great laugh. I too have joined to follow along on your days 8)

Jason said...

As a stay at home dad I can agree with almost everything you've said!!!(I don't have your big purse issues, but I still have my handy dandy diaper bag full of any occasion items)

Thanks for giving me a visit and leading me here!
