Motherhood Just Should Not Get in the Way of Some Things!

I thought this article was too funny! I had to post because some of you may be guilty of the following behavior:

Sometimes it is difficult to get being a Mom out of your head. The days when you were single and carefree are long gone. You are no longer your priority. You have someone else who takes up all your thoughts and actions all of the time - even when they are not there. This is my guide to things you should never say or do, even though you are now a Mom:

1. When at the dinner table.

Never try to help your friend to eat by making airplane noises and flying a fork of food around his head.

2. When in bed with your beloved.

Never say "Well done! Clever boy!" in a really condescending tone after his performance.

3. When at a restaurant.

Never ask your friend when they excuse themselves to go to the bathroom, if they want a wee wee or a poo.

4. When out shopping.

Never state the color and number of EVERYTHING out loud.

5. When going on a date to the cinema.

Never offer your date a lollipop for "sitting really well" throughout the entire film.

6. When in a job interview.

Never try to wipe a crumb off his moustache with your hanky (which you have licked).

7. When watching TV

Never make the mistake of watching the childrens channel AFTER your child has gone to bed, and not noticing.

8. When trying to be cool while waiting to be served in a Bar

Never start humming the tune to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Of course there are many more things you could add to this list.

I totally agree when you wrote: You are no longer your priority.

I am a new mom with a one-year old boy and I'm still adjusting to the total concept of Motherhood!

But I just have to be thankful in this era because there are just so many ways and many online peeps who are willing to help me cope up.
I like to share what I just found online, a useful app organizer called Intuition. I just downloaded it on my iOS4 and have not explored it just yet but it looks really useful and has good reviews. And they are for Moms and claims to be "Mom's personal assistant". Yey!
