Second time around

November 7, 2013

With the impending arrival of my second little guy, I’ve been thinking a lot about motherhood. There will be many new things this time around, I’m sure, but one thing will be a bit easier: I’m already a mom.

Becoming a mother means a lot of serious and amazing — and funny — things. I saw this list of 24 clear signs you’re a mom on the Huffington Post yesterday. My favorite:  #8. You can experience heaven and hell at the same time. Kind of the essence of motherhood, right?

Some others I liked:

10. You have the ability to hear a sneeze through closed doors in the middle of the night, two bedrooms away.

13. A 15-minute shower with the door locked feels like a day at the spa.

19. You’ve been washing the same load of laundry for three days because you forgot to dry it.

Also on becoming a mother: A local kids’ boutique shared the image below on Facebook yesterday. The best and truest line is the last one: “It will be the last time you will have all the answers.”
