Childhood Memories.



My mom had 4 kids in 5 years. Because she was crazy. And she loved little babies.

Turns out babies grow into grouchy kids, and when you squish them all into a car for a 3 hour drive to Grandma's house, you're lucky if everyone survives.

"She's looking out my window! MAKE HER STOP!"

"He's touching me!"

"I hate this music."

"I'm hungry."

"She's breathing my air!"

"But I don't like peanut butter!"

"I NEED TO GO POTTY!!"

"Stop looking at me!"

"I'm telling!"

"Mom, I have to go potty, too!"

"I AM NOT A BABY!"

"But I didn't have to go 5 minutes ago!"

"She called me a Poop-Head! PUNISH HER!"

And of course

"ARE WE THERE YET?"

Ah, kids. The best birth control there is. Whenever I start feeling baby hungry, I just think about my childhood. Yeah, I had fun. But my poor mom...Frazzled barely begins to cover it.

Lets just say, we didn't take road trips very often...

I speak from experience when I say that one frazzled toddler was not birth control enough...I'm pregnant again and even though he is going into the terrible twos I still remember the squishy time and can't wait...no the teething colic and all the sick stuff I can totally go without on...but the bonding loving cuddling touching and just looking into their little wrinkled face when you finally get them home and they are all yours thats the best! Sometimes I feel like kids are like lay's potatoe chips...you can't have just one...or once you pop you just can't stop...that applies too..lol

Hmm..good timing on this post. Its almost like you were in the car with us on the way back from Florida. Except the boys can't really fight yet...just pretty much constant screaming...and the kids were crying, too. So good to be home...
