A Typical Morning w/ Baby Boo-VIDEO

Some of our mornings start out…rough.

Since Baby Boo has never really learned the meaning of the word “sleep,” we tend to get an earlier-than-i’d-prefer start to the day.

I often find myself trying to hold my eyes open as I scramble through old recorded episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, just so I can pull myself together…(Because there is nothing more awakening than hearing Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck having a conversation about choo choo trains and mouskadoodles.)

I used to wonder if our mornings “fit” into that typical every day schedule like other stay-at-home moms, and I often asked myself if I’m the norm…

or well…far from it.

But there is something that I have learned through out this whole mommy journey, and it’s that no one is ever of the norm…

No one.

Sometimes we go to the mall and there are mommy’s there who have taken showers and their clothes actually fit and match. My first thought it, “Oh Brother, look at me…I took a shower today. Nener nener nener. I’m the best mom ever!”

But as I have grown older, and the showers happened way less, I realize some things aren’t just that important. (Ok…Although showers ARE important.)

My daughter’s smile on her face brings more joy to me than anything.

Moral of the story: If you see me at the mall, run far far away…I’m stinky.

So for those mama’s out there that want to feel a little bit more normal, and realize that some mornings our hair isn’t going to be brushed, our clothes aren’t going to be perfect, and we might just have to listen to Justin Bieber more than once to make it though the day…

It’s all good! As long as you and your kiddos are smiling that’s all that matters!

A Typical Morning w/ Baby Boo!

Hopefully you all feel a bit more normal now! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved the video, was laughing so hard I forgot I had just taken a bite of food. Didn’t you know you were supposed to choke down your food not just swallow. She is just tooo cute.

  6. L.M.A.O. Love this ๐Ÿ˜€ I was laughing the whole time because I know exactly what that’s like. Especially the beginning where she’s in the basket saying ow. My daughter does that and I can’t help but laugh. Then my son noticed and asked if that was Leela, his sister and I said no and then he said, but that’s the same shirt as Leela. And I looked over and my daughter’s wearing a shirt with the exact same pattern, lol! Especially loved the doll part!

  14. What a great post! I love seeing how everyone’s routine goes.

  15. This is hilarious! Just remember that thoe moms that look so put together are either spending hours to dress, or they obviously have someone at the house to help!! I totally look a mess sometimes in public now, which means I hate to think abut what I looked like when the boys were babies, haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. oh.my.goodness. What a great video! I am currently trying to keep my eyes pealed open with my too-early-riser.

    I love your blog, and it’s inspired me so much. I wish we were “real” friends. Yeah, that sounds super weird…but it’s the truth. haha.

  17. Sorry-one more thing. I just read your pregnancy post, and CONGRATS!!! That’s so exciting. And hard. You mentioned being weak with low blood pressure. Have you had your thyroid checked? Those could be symptoms of an under-functioning (hypo) thyroid, and with one little pill you could feel tons better (if that is the case). Anyway, just a thought. I hope you feel better soon.

  18. Congratulations!! I am a new reader and have started enjoying some of your awesome recipes this week. We had the 5-minute green muffin this morning! I was surprisingly impressed! Hope you start to feel better soon!

  19. Congrats!! That is such awesome news for your family! I’m actually pregnant with my first baby and am 10 weeks today! My due date is August 13, 2012! Only 6 days after yours! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you start feeling better soon!!
