Survival Skills Revisited

I wrote this post some time ago...way before baby number 2...so I pulled it back out and tweaked it just a bit to fit the present day. 

The essentials necessary to survive the daily doings of motherhood!

1. A very user-friendly coffee pot~ one that can be operated with eyes mostly shut while a child is sitting on your foot and one is in your arms. This piece of equipment should not be hard to clean or maintain, and it should be ready for repeat performances throughout the day.

2. Flintstones Vitamins~ all the goods in a cute little character...and you can share with the child on your foot.

3. Magic Mascara that has the ability to hide the immense lack of sleep that you thought would end with infancy...This mascara has to be thick, smudge proof, and water-resistant. The thicker the mascara, the more it supports the eyelids...tooth pics are a little painful, and have no beauty additives.

4. Wonder Robe. This robe should be wearable in all seasons, at all times, and all occasions. It serves as an apron, a blanket, a bath towel, but mostly a reminder to shop for real clothes someday.

5.Lastly, but not leastly, a great husband. He must be patient and kind, love wonder robes and smeared mascara. He must know how to operate the coffee pot as well, even though he rarely drinks coffee. He must have the ability to step in a perform all duties while mom is out cold on the couch or soaking in the bath. He has to be able to see the beauty in the frazzled look and provide sweet, reassuring kisses that you are doing OK at this motherhood thing.

Here's to motherhood~ the good ~the bad~ and the crazy!

  1. Even though I only drink decaf. coffee, I say amen to #1! We have a toddler who keeps us on our toes. She's as cute as can be and full of energy!
