Surely I'm Not the Only Mama Who......

1.  Sweeps dirt into one special corner of the house and lets it accumulate before cleaning it up.
2.  Immediately opens a bag of dry crunchy snacks for her children the moment they enter the grocery store.  In our case, it's the Kroger brand apple cinnamon rice cakes AKA heaven to Henry.
3.  Never washes her children with soap.
4.  Has a 16 month old who thinks she has to nurse 80% of the day.
5.  Keeps on driving past her house if the kids are happy and quiet in the car.
6.  Always has a sink full of dirty dishes.  At all times.
7.  Leaves clothes hanging on the clothes line for days after they are dry.
8.  Rarely showers.
9.  Complains about the lack of Christmas cards received this year, yet has made minimum effort to get her own Christmas cards ready to mail.
10.  Drives around with a package to mail for months on end.
11.  Reads so many books out loud each day that she likes to mix it up by changing the plot midstream just to see if she can keep the continuity of the story even with her plot changes.
12.  Obsesses over birth and it's implications in the global world.
13.  Does not discourage her children from eating food off the floor.
14.  Contemplates cleaning and laundry after the kid are asleep but never makes it off the couch.
15.  Has two children, two years and two pounds apart.  26+24=50 pounds of babies.

I think we might be long lost sisters. Really. =)

Lol! No, you are definitely NOT the only mama who does these things! Clothes on the line for a few days? Or until the next laundry cycle, or until I wear them again, or until the line is just too darn full to hold any more clothes...I relate to almost everything else you listed, too. Thanks for the laughs! :)

I also do #3 (we use tea tree oil on her) and #5, especially if she's sleeping. And #13, but only if it's off my floors even though said floors haven't been mopped since we bought this house and moved in in July. Shh! Don't tell anyone!

ROFL!!! Not the only mama at all! I can relate or could have related to every single line.
Thankfully the toddlers do grow up and eventually give you back your boobs, learn how to feed themselves real food, and eat off plates instead of the floor.

I would NEVER do any of those things. Gah.
