While my aunt and cousin were in town last weekend they called me on the carpet about a few things. I'd be "confessing" to some less than mother of the year award behavior and they would say "Now THAT is the stuff you need to be blogging about!". So, here it goes - the real stuff.
3. Almost everytime I'm out running errands, park, and get ready to go in I have a moment of pause when I actually consider if it would be ok if I leave the babes in the car and run really fast. I'm talking about running in for a bag of ice, or to drop off some mail...things that if I lived in Laverne I would probably do without pause. The what-if's always stop me. I never actually do. But, I do have that thought occasionally. Don't report me.
4. I let Kate fall off the couch. Then, later, I let Lauren fall too. I really try to not play favorites.
5. The first month, I always, I mean everynight, always thought that I had a baby in my arms while sleeping. "Is this a baby?" became something Dan just said in passing to me. It was never a baby, but I always thought maybe...?? I also got very confused about how many babies we had in the first few weeks. Middle of the night, up to feed them, and I'd ask Dan "Are there 2 or 3 of them?". I think I just always felt outnumbered.
6. Kate makes this adorable pouty face when she first starts crying. Sometimes I let her cry longer than needed 'cause I just like to look at her sweet lips.
There. I'm sure there's more. I'm sure there's worse. But for today it's all I have in me. Just keepin' it real...
