13 Things

13 things I have yet to get used to as a parent:
  1. Sharing a bed with more than one person.
  2. Entire meals in the garbage can.
  3. Toothpaste. Everywhere.
  4. Relentless television viewing.
  5. The question "What's for dinner?"
  6. The stench of microwave popcorn.
  7. The pitter-patter of little feet, followed by heavier footfalls, followed by the sound of a body hitting the floor, followed by crying, followed by apologizing.
  8. The demanding of ice cream (but that's from the Mommy).
  9. The door opening and closing ad nauseam.
  10. Plastic cups with traces of milk left in the refrigerator.
  11. The question "Where's Mommy?"
  12. Random stickiness.
  13. My youngest crying when I leave her in the mornings.

#13 bothers me so much that sometimes I cry if any kid in my youngest's class is crying when I leave.

#10 is disgusting! I hope that I don't ever have to get used to that.
