Motherly Truths

Remember that one time that I was all "Daily Posting here I come!"

Total bomb. Like, seriously.

I'd like to update that mantra to "Posting when I remember, here I come!"

It's totally legit. Feel free to use it.

In other news,  I happened upon a conversation the other day, which reiterated to me, yet again, how other people view my life.

Two women discussing their kids. 

woman 1: "I just don't know what to do with him! I can't handle this anymore!"

woman 2: "How old is he again?"

woman 1: "Two. The terrible twos!"

woman 2: "Yeah, well mine is three. Three is WAY worse than two."

enter me walking up...

me: "Hey! What're we talking about?"

woman 1: "Ugh, our kids. two year olds are SO HARD."

woman 2: "And I was saying how three year olds are way worse than two year olds."

me: "Oh... well. yeah, I have a two AND a three year old."


It then went to the usual "I don't know HOW you do it!" and "But you're dressed! And out! And your hair and make-up are done!" and "Wow."

It was the highlight of my day....

For the record?

Three year olds are WAY worse than two year olds.


  1. Ha! Wow. love the compliments you got in that one. A 3 yr old AND a 2 yr old...You must be like a Mommy goddess to

    Yeah, blogging when you get the time...
    *sigh* That's just what it is...

  2. HI there...I just joined your MMB group...and for the record :) I have a 4, a nearly 3, and a 1 year I get a prize yet?

    Well you CAN get a at my blog if you enter for my Easter giveaway:

    Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE Washington, DC...we moved from there a few years ago though...we'll be back for cherry blossoms though! Glad I found you!

  3. i am trying to boost your comment numbers and thereby make u love yourself... and me... more.

  4. is it working? some people r so annoying!

  5. I agree. I was on my high horse when my oldest was such a sweet two year old...

    ...and then he turned 3...

    You are pretty amazing. I mean your hair is always fabulous but you have make up on, too. Well done.

  6. Wow Angie, trigger finger much?


  7. Ummm try 13, 14, 16 and 18....then we'll talk :)

  8. My boys are 15 months apart. There were a joy. (sense the sarcasm?)

  9. Oh Linda, I will be there. I WILL BE THERE.

  10. I have a "too smart for his own good" three year old and an autistic two year old.

    My days are AWESOME.

  11. Linked from MMB. Way to go! The only comment I ever get is, "Wow, you sure have your hands full!" That's probably because I LOOK like I have my hands full though because I often forgo make-up, so you are amazing!

  12. I like telling people that my kids are 6,5,3&2 just for the excuse that my hair is in ponytails and I'm lucky to get mascara on these days. Except that my youngest isn't quite 2, and my oldest is more like 6 3/4. Details details. It's much more dramatic to leave those out.

  13. Believe it or not, the day will come, when you will have time on your hands. Time to soak in the tub, and read a book, and blog-blog-blog.

    But, oh, if only I knew THEN what I know NOW. I would have treasured those moments when all the kids were young * especially when my husband would pile all 9 of the kids (from 6 months to 16 years) in the car on Saturday mornings (while I got to stay home in bed), and take them to SAM's Club * aaaaah - life can be good! It took him twice as long as it should have, to get through the shopping. He would have to stop time and time again, to talk with people, who would ask him if all the kids were his:-)

    Moms rock...and so do dads!

  14. I am TOTALLY enjoying them now. If I didn't, I'd kill 'em.

  15. I totally agree that 3 year olds are worse than 2 year olds. However, 10 year olds are WAY worse than the 2 ages combined! *Enter me* "I don't know what to do with him! UGGHH!"

  16. Wait til you have a 15 year old AND a two year old. Oh wait. You won't. NEVER MIND.
