I have been making mental lists ever since I became a parent. Lists of things to remember, things I need to pick up, things my kids like, things that cause drama, etc...
However my longest list (and funniest) I wanted to share with you...
Funny things NOT to do
*Never match socks
My kids would rather wear mismatched socks - DEFINITELY NOT matched ones so why waste my time.
*Do not leave clothes that are too small for your baby/child in their dresser.
Or THE day you ask your husband to help you get the kids ready while you get yourself ready so your not late- BAM .... he finds that outfit out the ENTIRE dresser.
*Never tell your teenage child you will help them with their homework.
Because you really will not remember learning that from middle/high school.
*Do not assume just because you fed your teenage son 5 minutes ago that he is full.
THEY ARE NEVER FULL!
*Never think skinny jeans mean you have to be skinny to fit them.
*Do not believe your daughter with pufflicious hair will handle her hair herself as a teen.
She will convince you that you do a much better job.
*Do not assume just because they passed the tests at school, that kids can actually tell time on clocks that are not digital.
*Never trust your child has brushed their teeth every night/morning without you bothering them.
As a matter of fact, that also goes for deodorant.
*Never tell someone your baby waves and says bye-bye.
He will wait until completely out of the site of the person to actually wave and say bye-bye.
*Do not bother asking the kids if they made their bed.
It's always made, they either sleep on the floor or sleep on top of covers to avoid making their bed.
*Never get your hopes up that a family portrait of 11, will have everyone smiling nicely.
There is always one (or more) that make a crazy face.
There are so many more and I may blog again about this same topic, as I am sure my list will continue to grow over the years. Hope you enjoyed this short list.
I would love to know if y'all have any DO NOT things that you mental list. Please share.
