Things I’m Learning as a Mom

Things I’m Learning as a Mom

* Two year old boys NEVER run out of energy.

* Children really do inherit both good AND bad traits of their parents. Well, of their father, anyway. : )

* Using an electric clippers on a squirmy two year old boy will inevitably lead to bald spots.

* I never thought I’d get sick of hearing “Mommy.”

* You CAN spend TOO much time with your child.

* Two year old boys are prone to do the exact opposite of what you ask.

* When Jacob grabs my face in his little hands and says, “I love you Mommy” the whole world melts away.

* Running in circles around Mommy while she is trying to do the dishes is GREAT fun.

* Watching my sleeping child evokes emotion deeper than the deepest ocean abyss.

* I don’t deserve such an amazing gift as Jacob.

* I understand more about how God loves me.

* I didn’t realize the theme song of Wow Wow Wubbzy would keep me awake in the middle of the night.

* I never knew how hard it was to be a good mom.

* I have a whole new and higher respect for my mom.

* I would protect my child unto death. (Ask me sometime about Henry the rooster if you don’t believe me!)

* Two year old boys like more than anything to bang, jump, climb, make loud noises, and scare their Mommy’s have to death with their stunts.

* I never knew how much one little boy could change my life. Mommy loves you Jacob.

...and you learn that the "terrible twos" are not truly that terrible, except that someday you will miss them terribly...

Oh that took me back, except for the Wow Wow Wubbzy song, and I wish like anything I could go back for a day or two. Well, maybe just for a day. :)
