Motherhood is...

... constantly being impressed with yourself with all you can accomplish one-handed; at other times wishing you could just have a third arm.

... doing a load of laundry without adding the detergent.

... utilizing every last square inch of your Honda Civic just to spend the weekend with Grandma and Grandpa.

... having to decide between eating in 5 minutes flat or eating your dinner cold.

... realizing it's at least been a week since you last shaved your armpits... and even longer since you last shaved your legs.

... never getting too excited about an outfit you're wearing, knowing that at any moment it may be covered in any number of baby bodily fluids.  (Learned this one the hard way yesterday about 10 minutes before church.)

... not getting sleep, even when your little one is, because you're too busy worrying about why you haven't heard a peep out of him in the last 7 hours... and then waking him up when you go to check on him.

... making a fool out of yourself everyday for a few smiles.

I love being a mom.  And I love this little kid...
