I never thought that I would care so little about what is going on in the outside world. I have not read TMZ in 6 months....or People....Erin did get me an US Weekly the other day after a tough day with the girls to give my brain a break...It is still sitting on my bedside table..unread.
I never thought I would clean up a spot of spit-up with a baby wipe and never again think of that spot again. This includes the dog. Peyton projectile vomited on Tyson...and a baby wipe fixed everything.
I never thought I wouldn't mind doing 2 loads of laundry a day. Someday, I am going to miss folding those little leggins.
I never thought I would care so little about my appearance. Make a smartass comment about how my hair is a mess or that I have dried spit up on my shoulder and I'll make a smartass comment right back about how I chose to snuggle with my babies for 5 extra minutes today instead of shower.
I never thought I would have constant lower back pain from leaning over the sink everyday to wash bottles. and I don't even mind doing it...
I never thought I wouldn't mind not sleeping through the night. Ever.
I never thought I would look SO forward to 9pm - last bott then bed for the nuggets.
I never thought that by the time I am going to bed 10:30/11pm, that I would miss those nuggets and have to fight the urge to pull them into bed with me.
I never thought I would get such a kick out of the looks on strangers faces when they ask what my husband does and I tell them my WIFE is a Finance Manager. (I can hear the wheels spinning...wife..okay, gay...with twins? Now how does that work??)
I never thought there would be dust bunnies lining my staircase...occasionally, I grab a baby wipe and clean them up...98% of the time I am carrying two babes who are kissing and licking my face and I do not even notice the dust.
I never thought that I wouldn't mind sleeping with no blankets or pillows and freezing my ass off just to give my nuggets a full nights sleep.
I never thought that being a stay at home mom would be so effin hard.
I never thought that being a stay at home mom would be so amazingly rewarding.
I never thought that I would miss cooking. But making baby food is cooking enough for now...and all that I have time for.
I never thought that I would look forward to nap time - when the girls actually sleep - so much.
I never thought that I would wear a necklace made just for my nuggets to chew and bite on.
I never thought I would be so proud of myself when other Mom's ask me how the hell do I do this without a nanny.
I never thought that I would hold up my iPhone with Baby Einstein playing praying that this distraction would force my daughter to drink just one more ounce.
I never thought I would miss being pregnant so much.
I never thought that Erin blowing a fuse while hanging our Christmas lights would cause such panic as Peyton's swing was plugged into the circuit that blew causing it to stop swinging. So, as I am swinging her by hand and whispering/screaming to Erin that IF-THIS-BABY-WAKES-UP-I-WILL-EFFIN-KILL-YOU.
I never thought I would not mind changing 15 diapers a day - everyday.
I never thought that at 6pm I would put my nuggets in bouncy seats in front of the T.V. to watch Family Guy (a show that I detest, but the colors keep their attention) for 2 minutes so I could pee for the first time since 7am.
I never thought that I would be so excited to never wear a bikini ever again.
I never thought that I would not miss going out and drinking. Not one bit.
I never, ever thought that I would be this lucky.
