I stole this bit from a friend's Facebook page. She wrote this for the New Year... She is a wife and mother of two young girls...
A glimpse of things I have learned in 2012: It will be several years before I have normal box of tissue sitting in my house that has not been re-stuffed 20 times. If you put your food on your sister's plate when your parents aren't looking, you clean your plate a lot faster. Doing a 'booger check' on my work pants before walking in is wise, especially in the height of my children's leg hug face range. Buying band items for Christmas including but not limited to cymbals and bells just because I secretly want them to be band nerds like me was a dumb idea at ages 1 & 3. Just dumb. Playdoh also falls into that category. I have also realized at 31 years of age, My Husband still thinks farts are funny, and has kindly passed this quality onto his daughters. This is one way to keep those boys away I guess. A 3 year old can and will know more Spanish words than many adults just by watching several episodes of Go Diego Go and Dora the Explorer. I hope to learn even more insightful information in 2013.
The Box of tissues is a current issue at my home!
