When you become a mom, you
start doing things you never thought you would do. Things that might make you
side-eye somebody else for doing. I promise, we don’t do it on purpose, but as moms
we are all sorts of creepy. And here’s why…
1. We watch our children
sleep. Because we just can’t get enough of them. Even though they drive us
crazy when they’re awake, we miss them when they’re asleep. Go figure.
2. We creep around other mom’s
cars to check out what car seat they have. And diaper bag. And stroller. And
any other baby item that we’ve been debating buying ourselves.
3. We take photos of our
kids doing various weird things that we think must be documented, i.e. sitting
on the toilet, eating, playing on the swings, etc. I can only imagine our kids
saying to us, “Just let me be, Mom!”
4. Our ideal form of
entertainment is watching our child through the video monitor. What did moms do
before those things?!
We talk about our
uteruses like it’s normal everyday conversation.
5. We watch our kids as they
run off to school through our car windows and hope they don’t notice. Do
they have friends? What do their parents look like? Can we be friends, too?
6. We notice when another
mom has washed her hair, and will probably go so far as to touch it and even
smell it. We can’t help it, it’s such a rarity! Plus, we totally appreciate
when other moms notice these things.
