I used to have a weekly meme called You Know You’re a Mom When-sDaze. It was fun to do because you could share all of your good (or bad) You Know You’re a Mom When stories. I actually miss do it, and I’ve considered bringing it back. But that’s another story for another day.
What I wanted to share with you is this one: You Know You’re a Mom When…you would consider selling your kids to gypsies. Yep, I said it. And I think after you see this, you’d probably agree with me that it isn’t a bad choice.
My lovely, beautiful four year old daughters are like pretty little tornadoes. Any room they enter, they leave a mess in their wake. I try to clean up one mess, and they are busy making another elsewhere. I’m about ready to sell them to gypsies, or ship myself off to the looney bin.
Here’s the (most current) reason why selling the kids to gypsies sounds like a good idea…
When we moved the girls into their bedroom, we had to repaint it because it was Ethan’s old bedroom and was painted for a little boy. So I let the girls pick the new paint color and their bedding.
Lila picked pretty little flowers and butterflies.
Mia picked flowers and ladybugs.
And they both helped pick out this picture and the pretty peach paint for the walls.
And then the other day, while cleaning their room, I realized that my lovely little girls had started to unpaint the walls.
So you see, I think I have a valid reason for wanting to sell my kids to the gypsies. Now I get to repaint in there again. I’m ready to just let them tear it all up and then leave it that way until they are 18 and move out.
So tell me, what is your You Know You’re A Mom When moment of the week?
