The ABC's of Me!

It was harder to think of things than I expected! Maybe it's because I'm lacking sleep. Or maybe because my brain is only running at 76%. Anyway here are most of the letters. I'm working on the rest.

A: Always. I will ALWAYS be there for my children through good times and bad. I know that they will make mistakes, but I will be there to help them through life. (But not by being an enabler.)

B: Better. My family has made me a better person and given me a better life. I hope that I'm able to do the same for them.

C: Clowns. I don't like them. They scare the *bleep* out of me! My children will never have a clown at their birthday parties. Thank you Stephen King. Sorry kiddos.

D: Daddy J is an awesome dad. That is all.

E: Exhausted! Mommy J has a 2 month old and a 3 year old and Mommy L has a 5 year old, a 2 year old and a less than a month old baby! Yeah we are definitely both exhausted right now!

F: Fortuitous timing. A few years before Honeybee's arrival I actually thought that I might not want children. (Go teach in a very tough school system with no support if you want the best form of birth control!) had it not been for Honeybee's surprise appearance we probably still wouldn't have children and would be missing out greatly.

G: Gastrointestinal Distress. Being a mommy, I've experienced heartburn and morning sickness that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies. I have now been peed on, pooped on, and puked on in every conceivable color and texture. Ew.

H: Helicopter parent. Even though I would go to the ends of the earth for my children. I will never be the kind of parent that hovers around my children and not let them learn how to live life for themselves. I'd be doing a great disservice to them by doing everything for them. And if I ever unwittingly do, please shoot out my propellor.

I: I

J: Mommy J. Yup that's me. I'm the oldest (and wisest - heehee) of 4 kids. Mommy L is kid number 2. We have 2 brothers as well.

K: Kitchen. My favorite room in my house and where I spend most of my time. (there were many jokes


M: Me. I am often guilty of putting me last. I need to keep reminding myself that sometimes I need to make sure I am taken care of too.

N: Neurotic - yes that is me. I freely admit it.

O: Organized will never be me no matter how I try.

P: Pout lip- it's my kryptonite. I crumble whenever I see it (babies only- this doesn't work with the hubby).

Q: Quick reflexes. Since Honeybee became mobile my reflexes are ninja quick!


S: Superheroes. Well yes we mommies are superheroes but that's not what I mean here. I love that my husband has shared his childhood love of Batman and other superheroes with our daughter. They watch the old 1960's Batman series (with Adam West) every night and he has passed on his action figures to her which they play with all the time.

T: "That" parent. Yes I am always terrified I am being "that" parent.

U: Up (the Pixar movie) The beginning of this movie gets me teary every time I watch it. If you don't get even the least bit misty eyed when you watch it you must have no soul! I was bawling like a baby when I was pregnant and saw this.

V: Violinist. That was me in my old (pre baby) life. And while I'm no longer a performer, I don't really miss that life. I wouldn't trade being mommy for anything.

W: Why? Fortunately, Honeybee has not picked up this common kid habit. Unfortunately, she has started asking the same question over and over again. Even after I answer it!

X: X- rays. One of the (many) things that have been the cause of my ever growing list of neurosis. Long story. I'll save it for later.


Z: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz! huh? Oh sorry I must have dozed off again. Seriously, I need more sleep.
