I Do Mom Stuff...
So today whilst going about my daily routines I realized something that maybe I should've noticed a while ago, but I was probably in denial... I do mom stuff!?!? No seriously, let me explain. I have weird little routines/rituals that I do every day, that in my mind, help me get through the day relatively unscathed. Case in point, I heard Brynlee get up from her morning nap, so I get her sippy ready, run upstairs, bypass her bedroom for a quick potty break of my own, then retrieve her from her bed come downstairs, give her the sippy and voila, happiness abounds. Later in the routine of things I realize it's going to be naptime soon, so I run upstairs first to Kalea's room to fix her blankets, then to the bathroom- yes I pee'd twice today(!) then to Brynlee's room to fix her blankets and turn on the heater so her room is toasty warm for her afternoon nap. I even do dishes in a specific order now because I find grease sticks to plastic kid dishes, so I do the kids stuff separate from the big people dishes! Isn't that funny? I think it's so hilarious, because I'm really not this person, I swear!!! When did I become this person?! And as I sit here writing this I find myself wondering, what was my routine like before kids? What little routines did I have then... Oh right, none... BORING! Today I am realizing that not only have these kids brought a lot of craziness to my life, but they've kind've MADE my life. Good for them! Yay kids!
