Welcome to the Mom Club...

Well, it's official! I have joined the mom club. How do I know this to be true? Let me list a few of the criteria that I feel have entered me into such a coveted position:

1. I am still wearing the same shorts and t-shirt that I fell asleep in last night. (Today was a rough day.)
2. As soon as Chris' key hit the door today I told him I had to get out of the house for awhile. He said, "Sure, I'll watch Gracie. You go and take your time and do something for yourself." Where was my long-awaited escape to, you might ask? The post office, Sonic to get a tea peach tea, and a trip to Kroger where I made sure to dilly-dally as much as possible. It felt wonderful!!!
3. I have spit up in my hair.
4. I can't remember brushing my teeth today.
5. This list makes me sound like I have personal hygiene issues, but really I just don't have time or I am too delirious to care.
6. I got 6 thank-you cards completed today and I feel I have made a real accomplishment.
7. Everything in my washer at this very moment has poop stains on it.
8. I haven't worn make-up in three days and I am not quite certain what day it is when asked.
9. I have no idea what I am doing.
10. I know I am blessed.

Where is my badge? Then again, if I am walking around town looking like what I described above is it necessary for me to need one? I think not. These are the days of my life.

so true girl, so true! Sonic was the greatest escape for me because I could sit there in my pj's with sunglasses on and no one would know that I was a new mom who considered myself to be on vacation at that very moment!
