Hello Motherhood.

Emily: What's that?
Me: That's a rock.
Emily: What's that?
Me: That's still a rock.
Emily:What's that?
Me: That's the bottom of the rock.
Emily: What's that?
Me: Same rock, nothing has changed.

You get my point.

Emily came up to me with her large bucket of animal toys and started pulling them out and asking me what each one was. The sad thing is that I had to google a lot of them.
Which went something like this....

"That brown horse looking thing with two horns"

and

"What's the difference between a girl lion and a panther that's not black?"

THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME!
but I didn't want to give her the wrong names, I could just see it now, she could go years thinking a gazelle is a unicorn because I was too busy to look it up and she goes to school and THE TEACHER CALLS ON HER FOR THE ANSWER TO AN ANIMAL AND SHE CALLS IT A UNICORN!
And then I don't get that sweet bumper sticker that says, " My child is an honor student".

The sad domino effect of buying them a bucket full of animals for Christmas.


I'm just throwing this out there, but maybe it should come with a list of everything that's in the bucket.





Okay, let me explain this one.
Emily got a princess doll for Christmas and she took the crown off and stuck it into my messy hair and I didn't take it off right away and I forgot about it.
I forgot about it when I ordered pizza.
I forgot about it when there was a knock at the door.
I forgot about it when the pizza man was laughing and didn't say anything.....
I hung my head in shame when I walked into the bathroom, turned the light on and this was the first thing I saw.

Hello motherhood.
