Motherhood

Don't let the title of this post fool you.. I am nowhere near motherhood! 
I just have a few thoughts on it...

This weekend I babysat for my dad's friend. He has 2 little girls and I got to watch them overnight. 

Oh my gosh I have never been so exhausted. Ever! 

That's probably a little dramatic but really. All they wanted to do was go, go, go! I'm not that old so I knew they were playing pretty hard. 

Another thing: I don't think my patience has ever been so tested as it was in those 23 hours. 

What is so sad to me is that I thought I loved kids! I was so excited to have lots of my own and be the fun and creative mom that is always doing something crafty and cool. But, all I really wanted to do was sit down and take a nap.

I asked my mom what my problem was and she said it is a lot easier to love your own kids. 

Makes sense to me. I definitely think I have some learning and maturing to do. Because I don't think McDonald's ice cream can solve all problems.

Don't get me wrong, the girls were adorable and I had so much fun but I can tell you this right now.. I am not ready to be a mom. 

So, until I am, McDonald's ice cream can solve all problems :)

  1. Know the feeling. Lindsay and I babysat you 4 rugrats when you were wee. It was HARD, but we still loved you after.

  2. I have two girls and being a mom is the hardest job I have ever had! They definitely keep you on your toes. McDonald's is always a good bribery tool though :) Heather
