22 Things I've Learned as a Mother

Stacy Julian suggested making a list like this.
And since I've had a busy day and wasn't able to make my last giveaway item, I thought I'd play along.

1. You can make breakfast food for supper and it's okay.
2. Nothing combines pain, love and power more than the birth process.
3. Potty training is crappy
4. There aren't many things a good snuggle won't help
5. Sometimes crying IS the only thing you can do
6. It's easy to make new friends. Just go introduce yourself
7. Everybody feels better with a good nights sleep
8. Some times it just doesn't matter
9. The perfect ending to a day is a bath and a good book before bed
10. Trust those you love
11. The meal always tastes better when it's a picnic
12. Nature is amazing
13. Art is part of everyday life
14. Because I said so is NOT a satisfying answer
15. Blowing bubbles in your milk is fun
16. Having friends over makes the day better
17. It doesn't matter how good your voice is, just sing along
18. God loves us more than we realize
19. Boys think farts and poo are funny. No matter their age.
20. Never say your kids won't do this or that cause they probably will
21. Spanking doesn't make anyone feel good
22. Love never divides, it only multiples

Wanna play along??
AND welcome to all the new followers :) Lots of pressure now for good posts eh??? :)

I've learned a few things beyond your fantastic list:

Always be able to admit when you've made a mistake.

I'm sorry goes a long way with a child.

And since I live in a house of testosterone, add discussion of "balls" "nuts" or whatever call them to the fart and poo one. :)

Visible Voice said...

Loved! And it's soooo true about farts and poo!! I mean...sheesh!

Marie said...

Loved the list. Why is it that a bandaid with a superhero or Dora the Explorer seem to work so much better?

Let the party begin... said...

With six kids all between the ages of 9 and 24, I don't know if I have enough grey matter to come up with a list of my own, lol! I concurr with many, if not all on your list.
