    What is one thing you've learned about yourself since becoming a mother?

    That I'm more creative than I would have guessed and i have less patience than I would have though. And, that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. I never imagained myself not work. But I'm so thankfull that I don't have to. I love having this time with my kids!

    I really have more stamina than I ever imagined possible. Its hard to get everything to fit into one day but most days I do it.

    That I could love my kids far more than I ever thought possible. That I have way more patience than anyone would ever have believed. That I can exist on 2 hours of sleep, lol.

    That my patience dwindles with the number of kids I have screaming at the same time.

    Seriously, I have learned that flexibility will make your life a heck of a lot easier. Oh, and that being late by a few minutes is not the end of the world. Although, I still tend to arrive early for some things by some sort of miracle because my children do not really cooperate with the whole getting dressed, eating breakfast, getting out the door routine very well.

    I wish I believed this. If I am late somewhere I am automatically in a pissy mood. Yesterday DH was supposed to pick me up from work at 10 and we had an appt at 10:30. I was already stressing b/c I wanted him here at 9:45. He got here at like 10:05 and there was traffic and we pulled into the place at 10:30. I was mad b/c we weren't on time (its a long walk to where we were going) and he was excited that we had made it "in time". LOL

    I've learned that being a SAHM is harder than I thought but I still wouldn't have it any other way. I have also learned that I really have to focus on staying calm when things get stressful. Patience does not always come easy to me but if I take a deep breath and keep things in perspective then I have a much easier time.

    Well, having twins has certainly brought a new perspective to my life. Some days it is like herding cats. No one wants to head toward the door and both are running in opposite directions. I get one to the door, go to get the other, and the one at the door bolts. It is a real trial. I also have friends that tend to run late. So, it is either ditch the friendship or live with being late sometimes. Although, I have lied to them about a time just to make sure we arrive somewhere on time before.

    I will say that my DH does the same thing and it still makes me slightly frantic and pissy. His concept of time and mine are not quite the same. The worst is our Y night every Wednesday. I teach Zumba at 6:30, but I am supposed to be there 15 minutes early. I need to be in or near the group ex room, not pulling in the parking lot. DH thinks that getting to the parking lot means I was on time. It is a constant battle that I will never win. I just try to take a deep breath and go with the flow.
