1. Planning completely goes out the window when you become a mom. The one morning I wake up charged up, ready to take on the world and my never-ending to-do list is always be the same morning that my baby boy wakes up grumpy, refuses to go to school, resists naps and pees all over the furniture.

Last Sunday I decided that I need to manage my time better. I need to be more organized, especially with the #atozchallenge just around the corner. So I sat down and planned my to-dos for the entire week. I went to sleep on Sunday feeling energized and motivated. I as going to conquer the world! . And then I woke up on Monday to a super clingy toddler who refuses to go to school, refuses to play without me, basically refuses to let me out of his sight even to pee. It's been 2 days like this. I think its teething that has brought on this sudden change, but all my big plans of world domination have gone down the drain. . How do babies just know that mom is up to something?? How do they sense it? Is it just mine or is yours the same too? . . #tuesdaytickles #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaythought #momlife #toddlerlife #toddlermom #candidmotherhood #honestmotherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #thestruggleisreal #parentingstruggles #parentingproblems #onlyamomwouldunderstand #parentingbelike #workingmom #momswhowork #sahm #sahmlife #stayathomemom #clingybaby #clingytoddler #navzrater

4. Plans and schedules seem like distant dreams when a mom can’t even do her business without the minion banging on the door going “mamma…mamma…mamma” every 3 seconds.

 

5. Thank God for new episodes of Peppa Pig so that I can at least get 5 whole minutes to myself.

 

6. Or not!

 

7. The good thing is that motherhood helps you appreciate the smaller joys in life…like a leisurely shower or a cup of tea

 

8. Exercise gets a whole new meaning when you are a new mom

 

9. So does “TGIF”

 

10. Remember those good old days when a ‘party’ meant getting all dressed up, not leaving home before 10pm and dancing the night away? Yup, I don’t either.

Trust me, it works!) . Honestly, baby wet wipes are our secret weapon for just about anything right? What are some of the unusual ways in which you have used baby wipes? . . #momlife #babywipes #wetwipes #legitmomstyle #thisismotherhood #modernmom #momlifebelike #youknowyouareamomwhen
