What are the little things about being a mother that nobody could have told you?
I would never have never thought I would have to nag my daughter to drink (now 5)... anything! Water, juice, milk, whatever the hell you want, just drink! She doesn't drink enough and gets constipated. Eats plenty of fruits/veggies and fiber, but doesn't drink! lol wtf?
I never thought I would go a full year of not sleeping through the night. My son has reflux which is finally resolving a little, but man... I have missed my sleep.
I never knew I could stare at a sweet baby face for very long periods of time and not get sick of it.
I never knew I could want to beat up (just in my mind, not actually) another kid who doesn't even know any better, who does something sh*tty to my kid. Taking their toy, saying something mean etc.
