Parenting LOLZ Mommy Truth: The Real Miracle Of Life by Jill January 31, 2012 January 31, 2012 Inspired by my urge to throw Leyna across the room last night after she head butted me in the nose.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished Same Thing My Year-Long Relationship With Paper Planners Let Me Sleep Because I’m Never That Hungry 12 comments Megan January 31, 2012 - 2:33 am Word. A few nights ago Maggie bit me because, “Your arm was in front of the book, Moooooom.” “So you BIT me?” “I wanted to see if it would work.” “BITING was your go-to strategy?” And she’s still alive and well (though minus some privileges and plus some time-outs) which is pretty incredible. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t happen as frequently if kids weren’t the cute little DNA packs that they are. Reply Sally January 31, 2012 - 3:42 am Oh My! This could have been me last night when my 6 month old used his brand new teeth as a nipple clamp! Bravo you! Reply Lindsey January 31, 2012 - 10:56 am My 11 month old has taken to thumb gouging me in the eyes while shrieking so loud he shakes (I think he may be anticipating/mocking my pained cries). DNA is a wondrous thing. It’s difficult to consciously remember, in the first chaotic seconds of an eye gouge, that this is my child and not a violent intruder. Yet somehow it keeps me from launching him off me into the ceiling. Reply Leah January 31, 2012 - 11:19 am Right there with you, Leanna is 17 months and still like to head butt. The last bad one was at her Dr’s I thought I was going to have to get him to stop the bleeding Reply Tracy @ Liberating Working Moms January 31, 2012 - 11:22 am Word. Reply Law Momma January 31, 2012 - 12:13 pm So true. It’s the only thing that keeps them alive some days… Reply Laura B January 31, 2012 - 12:23 pm (and so their children can do the same thing to them) Reply elizabeth January 31, 2012 - 2:57 pm lol. i love these mommy truths so much and i dont even have any kids yet. i do have a nephew so i can somewhat relate. thanks for the laugh. it was much needed today 🙂 Reply Aubs January 31, 2012 - 9:28 pm You always make me smile! Thanks! Reply Rebecca February 1, 2012 - 10:44 am Truth. mine did that to me once and made me cry, while my husband was laughing hysterically. too bad I couldn’t have thrown HIM across the room Reply Vivian February 2, 2012 - 1:19 am Hmm, I totally agreed with you until I read the last part. Am I the only one who chooses to “gently” shove my 11 month old away when she crazily pulls my hair and pinches me every morning in bed because she wakes up before me?!?! Reply Jill February 2, 2012 - 1:36 am LOL. I confess I’ve done the same. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
