You didn't know becoming a parent meant...

I got this in my email from babycenter.com today...it's RIGHT ON!

You didn't know becoming a parent meant...

• Stacking today's unread newspaper on top of yesterday's unread newspaper.
• Eating dinner like we're trying to break a world record for the most pasta swallowed in the shortest amount of time. Standing up.
• Letting your partner choose between poop and laundry as a topic of conversation.
• Figuring out how to pee without putting the baby down.
• Wearing a bra that looks like something from a 1930s catalog.
• Spending three hours getting the baby to sleep and then waking her up two minutes later to make sure she's still breathing.
• Forgetting what you were...

You are too funny!

I have watched many a friend lose her mind once the kiddos were around.

Waiting my turn (and none too patiently, either).

i'm so glad i'm not the only one who had to learn how to pee without putting a baby down. Whew, I feel so much better now!

The bra part is so true! I always say most nursing bras look like instruments of torture. Yikes.

and don't forget you are now NOT Sally and Colonel. From here on you are only known as Lil Major's mom or dad!

Hey Sally, Lil Major is so big now. I love all the adorable pictures. I know you are dreading returning to work but it will work out. Have fun on your trip.

I could get the pee holding the baby thing done okay...it was the pulling the pants back up afterward that was the problem. :)
