You Know You’re a Mom When…

DjnDevin8.16

It’s Sunday! What better a day to reflect the Joys of being a Mommy, than on the day that the average Mom is home ALL day with the little boogers! πŸ™‚ Gathering info from other Mamas out there, combined with my own adventures, I compiled a list of things to remind you that “You Know You’re a Mom When…”

  1. You crave sleep. Like seriously want to throw a tantrum because you can’t take a simple 20 minute nap. You want to punch your significant other for not understanding your intense fatigue, and smack all of the geniuses who keep telling you to “sleep when the baby sleeps”. Oh ok! I guess I’ll have time later on to Eat, Wash my body, clean the bottles, wash the dishes, prep dinner, etc. You know, because I can sleep now and then do all of that other stuff when the baby wakes back up! Grrrrr.
  2. Showering is like a magical escape to a tropical island. Especially when you have yummy smelling shower gel, and sneak wine in the bathroom. Sure, the baby thinks you smell like heaven and keeps burying his little head in your arm pits and sweaty boobs. Your husband however won’t think that any of this shit is cute and side eye the heck out of you! Find time to shower!
  3. When you know Dad is taking the kids somewhere important, like the doctor, you know that you better lay EVERYTHING out way ahead of time, with detailed instructions of what needs to happen, where everybody needs to be, and by when! You know you have to make the diaper bag and take out the insurance cards etc., and put it all somewhere in Clear site that you know he HAS to pass by on the way out. We all love our Boos, but we also know better!
  4. The lady at Binny’s knows who you are, greets you by name when you walk in the store, and shows you where they moved your favorite wine when they re-merchandised the store earlier…Whaaat?? I have a Binny’s card. Don’t judge me! πŸ˜‰
  5. When people with no kids offer up unsolicited advice or ridiculous opinions about things involving children, and you’re usually giving them the Boo Boo face, and wondering why you are even entertaining this conversation.
  6. When your weekly planned Solo trip to the grocery store is something you REALLY enjoy partaking in, and get a serious attitude if someone offers to go with you.
  7. When you stop carrying baby purses and start buying big ass Totes because you need to fit Everything in it! My Longchamp holds everything from my favorite Burts Bees lip balm, to an extra pack of Zyrtec, to my birth control pills, to my makeup bag, to three diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer, Neosporin On-the-Go, a baggie of puffs, and a pack of fruit snacks!
  8. You can type a blog, text your husband about what he wants for dinner, catch up on Being Mary Jane, listen to your Mother yap about church and ‘pastor’ over the phone, argue under a status on Facebook, take selfies, post on Instagram, make a sandwich, feed the baby, and listen for some shit to go crashing in the living room while the 4yr old watches Avengers Assemble…..all at the same time!
  9. You stopped wearing nail tips and over-the-top designs Years ago and stick with a simple no-chip mani, because there’s NO way in hell you can give an infant a bath, wipe a booty, or close twelve thousand snaps and buttons on a onesie with long dumb ass nails!
  10. You’re tired! Like Really tired!!! Did I say this one already??? You’re up throughout the night pulling boobs out to nourish your child, and back up early in the am to start your day and prepare your children for theirs. If you work, you go to a place and put on a face to politely as possible deal with people you don’t always like so that you can continue to keep a roof over the heads of the ankle biters that drive you crazy :). If you have a husband, you better be doing the splits, swinging from a ceiling fan, and keeping your Vicky Secret account paid off, so that you can keep his attention as well. As a wife, you have to please him too! By the time you get alone time you’re a wreck! However, at the end of the day you know it’s all worth it. Why??…because you’re a Mom and we get shit done! πŸ˜‰

You see that picture above, and I wouldn’t trade them for the World!!

“Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero.” – Marc Brown

So who ARE we?? Yes, we’re brothers, but we’re SO much more than that! We’re Best Friends and Awesome kids! Here’s a little bit about us…

I’m DJ, an overly active, kind-hearted & sincere 4yr old that LOVES Ninja Turtles and Avengers, and is borderline Genius (no seriously). I am my Mommy’s ‘Pumpkin’ and my Daddy’s Junior and main sidekick. I do NOTHING without my Daddy! He’s my hero in real life and everything that he is I need to be! I was brought into his life for a reason and he knows it! πŸ˜‰ I am a Very proud, and fairly new, Big Brother. I take that job really seriously, and protect my baby brother at all costs! I still haven’t really managed the sharing thing yet, but I’m getting better! My Granny is my World! She was my first teacher through home-schooling, and holds Huge credit to my current level of intelligence! Outside of my Daddy, that’s probably my favorite person! I’m starting school in a couple of weeks and I’ll be in Pre-Kindergarten. I’m really excited about it and have met a lot of my friends and classmates already at Summer Camp! I’m looking forward to being a ‘Big Boy’ that goes to school everyday! My favorite toys are my Ninja Turtle Bow Staff stick, my Captain America Shield, my Thor Hammer, and my Jessie action figure from Toy Story (she might be my first girlfriend πŸ™‚ ). My favorite foods are pizza and fruit snacks and I really like the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino at Starbucks! My favorite color is red, and my favorite activity is playing outside at the park!

I’m Devin, a very busy, fun-loving and playful, and sometimes aggressive 9 month old, that likes crawling and pulling up onto things and getting into stuff that I shouldn’t be. I am my Daddy’s twin, and my Mommy’s ‘Gummy Bear’. She also has all of these other names for me like “Pooka Snoota”, “Snooka Poota”, and “Baby Lotso.” (SUCH a Mom!). That’s my girl though, and we Love to cuddle! I was kind of her miracle baby. I’m sure she’ll tell you guys all about that later. While I’m the newest to my family, I’m actually the most bossy. Small and Feisty! I sort of like to play fight. Mommy thinks I ay be a professional fighter one day. Β My brother Really entertains me and I’m always looking for him to see what silliness he’s up to. He makes me laugh! I’m glad I got him as a Big Brother!! πŸ™‚ Right now, I’m trying to learn how to walk. I “crab walk” and crawl right now, but my Granny bought me some cool shoes from Stride Rite, that are supposed to help and support my walking. Then I’ll REALLY be able to tear some stuff up!! I don’t really have a favorite food yet because I only have 5 teeth and Mommy and Daddy only give me my milk and itty bitty pieces of food sometimes. I don’t think it’s fair because they always get to eat the yummy smelling stuff, but hey, what do I know?1? I’m only 9 months! My favorite toy is Anything in my brother’s room that I can get my hands on, and I can’t be without my paci! I don’t know my colors yet, and I Β can only say small words like “Dada”, “Mama”, and “DJ”. My favorite activities are drinking my milk and napping. I like when Mommy sings songs to me right before I fall asleep.

So now that you know a little bit more about us, Mommy can start telling you All about our adventures! Hope you enjoy!!

“We’re WAY Too Popular for Regular Life!”

Welcome Everybody! I know some are wondering exactly what this blog will be about. Well, I have two very busy, rambunctious little boys under the age of 5, that are Full of Life and Energy! At the very least, their shenanigans need to be shared and exposed so that they can spread joy among others as well πŸ™‚ The insight of this blog will come directly through me, their Mommy! I am currently a stay-at-home Mom/Wife and have a front row seat to the boy’s everyday antics. Regularly giving my personal Facebook page a glimpse of them hasn’t seemed to be enough. People demand them! They ask me questions about them! They want to see more pics and videos of them! They steal the scene out in public! People Love Them!! So I created their Own site, and here is where you’ll find it all!! While I encourage colorful content and relevant commentary, please remember that these are KIDS and be respectful in that light. These are my prized possessions and sharing them with the world is a privilege. Now that we have the technicalities out of the way, let’s have some fun!! I present to you…. Dj ‘N’ Devin!!!
