Today's post is all about the real deal parts of motherhood.
Sometimes in the wee hours of the morning I hear the most stomach churning sound. It's the sound of two little girls waking up far to early. Time after time I have tried the following, grab the girls and then quietly lay them in bed with me and then lay really still with the hopes that my kiddos will notice my exhaustion and cuddle in beside me.
hAHAHAHAHA! Funny joke right?
Typically the following results
Eyes still closed I aimlessly try to grab at random limbs as my children walk around on my bed inches from the 2 1/2 foot fall to the floor. And within 5 minutes we are all up and out of bed as I can't handle the abuse of two littles jumping on me.
The girls have gobs of loud annoying music playing objects. Lots of toe curling sharp pointed toys laying all over the floor. Yet it is the tiniest little things that keep their attention for more than 5 minutes. So the other day I spent occupying the girls with noodles and cool whip containers. Homemade projects are the best! And the girls loved them. Just three small holes and four noodles broken down that the girls would put into the container through the hole. Working on our hand eye coordination.
Or another real life problem is that of finding shoes for tiny little feet. I like to stock up on the shoes from the Facebook resale page for twins but it doesn't always work. Like these cowgirl boots that were two sizes to big. Which doesn't matter to these girls... They are the biggest shoe lovers.
Walking was a little difficult and a few minor falls later mom was back to looking all over for silly shoes that actually fit
And thanks to all the helpful responses on Facebook. I finally found them some Sunday shoes at good ol Walmart! Yay for finding some and for the same Walmart actually having 2 of the same size and same color!
Cupcakes had a small break which was actually quite nice. But had another order this week and it was super duper enjoyable and relaxing. Plus it included my favorite. Lemon raspberry!! Yum
And the final real deal of being a mom...
At the ripe age of 22 I am now a mini van mom. We were planning to get one from my brother and sister n law so I was preparing myself for it in a month or
two. But then this past week we found a great deal on a honda and in less than 24 hours we had traded away our Edge and were thrown head first into the next stage of parenthood.
And yes I will admit on more than one occasion I proclaimed the statement that "I would never have a mini van" ... Yup I was one of those... But to be honest it took one day for me to get past the mini van status and fall in love with the convenience! Seriously I love how the honda drives and that I can just click a button and my girls can waddle outside and pull themselves up into the vehicle and find their car seats all by themselves!! Ahh I finally can feel a sense of relief and independence.
So yet again I am humbeled and thankful as God thrusts us head first into being the parents of three kiddos.
