The first, I spent time filling out the memory book
The second I just managed to throw stuff in the memory book
The third, there is no memory book.
The first, I boiled all the pacifiers daily
The second I rinsed it off every time it hit the floor
The third, I employed the 5 second rule
The first, it was all Baby Phat, Carters and Old Navy
The second, it was all Target, Walmart and outlet shops
The third, it’s all Once Upon a Child and hand me downs
The first, Huggies was a must, changed at the thought of a soiled diaper
The second, Pampers all day, changed at least five times a day
The third, straight Target brand, and “how long you been sitting in this poop”
It’s just not possible or sane to keep up all the hoopla we go through with the first child. With more kids comes more wisdom and more ingenuity in saving money and cutting corners!
Gotta love motherhood!!
