I'm a Real Mom...(tagged)


This is my tag assignment from the Trench Master (er Mother)...In The Trenches of Mommyhood--(see "go to girl" sidebar)

~Real Moms gain 60#+ w/ each pregnancy (sorry--just trying to make myself feel better)(did you see Kate Hudson?)
~Real Moms can pop blood vessels in their eyes (and see blurry for days) after pushing out a 9#4oz baby (i didn't know this til it happened to me)(they are apparently supposed to come out your whoo-ha not your face!!LOL!!)

~Real Moms can change a nasty diaper w/ only one wipe (they didn't know they were out)
~Real Moms can nurse a baby while sitting on the toilet and throwing up in a trash can w/ a stomach bug (I know b/c I have done this)
~Real Moms will let the whole house be destroyed and picked up by 430p every day
~Real Moms will defend their child even if it is embarrassing for mom (did you see Little Miss Sunshine?) (my example:when a child-not mine-poops in some rude,rich persons pool--not that it ever happened to me :|)
~Real Moms will wear pajamas til 430p if they choose (not that I would--LOL!)
~Real Moms can deep clean her car on the side of the road if needed (see my Lo for wk)
~Real Moms wonder why they would do all this again but secretly know that it is their greatest accomplishment and the end result far outweighs all the inbetween stuff
~Real Moms can't imagine the thought of life w/o their children
~Real Moms know that looking back and merely laughing at all these memories was somehow worth living it! :)

why do i have a pic of Kate Hudson pregnant you may ask? b/c she is my role model...

Kate Hudson: I gained sixty pounds and I'm proud of it (eating ice cream sundaes and banana splits). I would eat a pint of ice cream a day literally and I think it's because I don't drink milk and it was this calcium thing. I loved them so much. It was fun. Why do I need to watch my weight when I'm pregnant? I could eat whatever I want to eat. He (Ryder) weighed 8 pounds 11 ounces and he was two weeks early. The whole family has big babies and it runs in the family. I'm OK being big. Everybody else was more worried about it than I was when I was losing the weight. All the magazines I did I weighed about 145 pounds and I'm proud of it. I had a baby. There's nothing to be ashamed of when you blow up.

p.s.have you seen her NOW? i love her! :0) signed by~a REAL mom
