Fat Pants

I am regretting getting rid of ALL of my fat clothes.
My wardrobe is shrinking by the day, and my stomach is most certainly not.

Oh Alyvia.

Liv- "Mommy, my nail has a bit of an imperfection"

Me- "An imperfection?"

Liv- " Yes Mom, you know, a FLAW!".

If she's this smart at 4, I'm terrified for 14.

Freak me out.

You know what is pretty much no fun at all?
Learning about, reading about and discussing almost every possible genetic defect known, while pregnant.
You know what makes it worse?
Dr. Google.

If you want it done right...

Dealing with husband lesson #362.
"Oh! Found your keys Babe" does not necessarily mean he grabbed them.
And if you assume that he did, you will end up sitting in the vehicle without the keys, with a securely locked house.

I love Cody, I really do.

But it's days like today, when my two year old uses phrases like "hardcore!" , and "Mommy! Fistpump!", that I wonder if I truly picked the right man to reproduce with.

Sleep is our friend, right kids?

Dear Children,
Remember our arrangement? You sleep through the night and I don't come unglued on you. If you're not going to hold up your end of the bargain, no promises from me.

Mommy's gonna lose it.

Third times a charm.

After the day we had yesterday, I'm not sure the world is ready for another Spencer child.
Let's just hope this next one takes after me. Calm, cool and collected.

Now I know why some species eat their young.

Some days I feel more like a one-man riot squad than a parent.

Today my children are lucky I don't have access to a taser.

A good reason my kid's are too young to help with chores.

I appreciate Pierce's attempt at cleaning the toilet.
It's really too bad he used my toothbrush and that Liv NEVER flushes.

My kids have a great diet, they just don't know it.

I am enjoying the silence of my children devouring...get this... Black bean and Sweet Potato Enchildas.
Who cares that I lied and told them there was ice cream and chocolate candies in the center. We already know I won't be getting Mother of the Year.

#1 Mom

Some days I feel really good about myself. Like I might really be catching on to this parenting thing.
Then I walk around the corner, and find Pierce drinking from a puddle.
