Ten things that I have learned after becoming a mother:

  • The little plastic stickers that come on apples and pears don’t break down in the digestive tract.
  • It is possible to maintain your sanity even if you don’t get an unbroken night of sleep in 4.5 years.
  • Mesh or tulle laying on a wood floor is one of the most slippery things you can encounter.
  • Kids can play outside at 8:30 at night in 25 degree weather with no coats for more than 45 minutes without apparently feeling cold.
  • Very high pitched noises really grate on most men.
  • Your own child’s vomit, pee and poop is gross, but not as gross as other children’s.
  • Giggles are contagious.
  • When your child is in pain, the desire to make everything better takes over your whole being.
  • Not all children dislike beets and brussel sprouts.
  • Even if you scream and lose your temper, your kids don’t hold it against you for long. They have an incredible capacity for forgiveness.
