[M.M.11] ...just because.

Happy (Easter) Monday Mamalogues!
'A link up to share the beauty and breakdowns of motherhood'
 Because somedays Motherhood feels like an endless game of whack-a-mole.

Because the kids seem to co-conspire to unravel your last thread of sanity.

Because a baby-wipe looks like the closest thing you'll get to a shower in a day.

Because keeping shoes/pants/hats on your child is tantamount to torture.

 Because dumping yogurt all over the cracker is just how she likes to eat it.

Because food is all they want alllllll day... except when a meal is served.

Because your husband comes home and thinks your right eye is twitching.

Because you have to abruptly end a phone call with "oh she's pooping!!" (#pottytraining101).

Because some days you wonder how your heart can hold such a BIG love for such little folks.

Because you see a mini-you and a mini-husband in their eyes.

Because you melt when they snuggle in close to your neck.

Because they crack you up in a new way every.single.day.

Because after the babies are sleeping, the laundry is done, the dishes are washed... and the house (for a brief moment is quiet).. you sit and realise how blessed you truly are. 

Yes, for all these reasons, and more... are the answer to: 'why are you mamas so crazy?'...
crazy in love with these lil' nutheads.

What are your reasons?

Feel free to join in with your own mama-rants and rejoicings!

Mel ;o)

    These posts make me laugh. They remind me that a) it's a good thing I don't have children, b) I still don't want any, ever, and c) mothers are worthy of super hero names and costumes. I honestly can't imagine a life totally devoted to another human being, let alone two. It's incredible what you do on a daily basis and it's incredible that you can see the good in it and that you can love your two little bundles of chub with such an open and honest heart. I am endlessly in awe of you, Mel. xo

  3. Awww... hehe, you're such a sweet soul - I appreciate you being here Nicole ;o) I reaaalllly hope that I'm 'following' you long enough to see you down the road when you and Ian have a white picket fence and a house packed with kidlets!! lol You never know where life will take you.....

  4. Yes, definitely those morning snuggles - one of my favourite posts of yours.. so sweet!! xx

  5. So, what's your excuse for being so crazy before you became a mama ;P
