Things I’ve Learned as a Mom by Cindy Hamilton

I’ve only been a mom for about 6 years, but in that time I have learned a thing or two about mommyhood. Here are some of the things I’ve learned:

1. Never leave baby wipes in the car. In the summer they dry-up and in the winter they freeze solid.

2. Every mom feels insecure about something.

3. Never serve cupcakes with colored frosting to children. EVER.

4. Your children will tell your in-laws things  about your family that you never meant to leave the house.

5. There are no restrooms at Wal-Mart. (I know this is dishonest. But, I really CANNOT go in there!)

6. Good or bad, your children will reflect back to you YOU.

7. No matter how cute your shoes are, people still can’t get past the spit-up on your shoulder.

8.  Yours is the smartest, best looking AND best behaved child in the class. And you just let the other moms THINK their child is.

9. Never throw your child’s artwork or homework  away in the top of the trash. Always bury it deep inside and under other trash.

10. Don’t assume “playing quietly” is a good thing.

11. Once your child gets the first free cookie at the grocery, you can never go back again without visiting the bakery.

12. Baby feet are the cutest thing in the world.

13. Listening to your child pray is the sweetest sound you will ever hear.

14.  Never leave tempting snacks on low shelves of the pantry.

15. You are not in competition with other moms.

16. A child’s kiss is sweeter than honey even when it messes-up your make-up.

17. Mismatched clothing is not worth arguing over.

18. Prayer takes on a whole new meaning.

19. 7:30pm used to seem early.

20. Hearing “Mommy, I love you.” can turn even the worst day around.
