Habits

Before baby comes I have started to become very aware of certain habits that we may need to change. Here are some examples...

Habits to Stop:

1. Calling Bella "bumbum" or "stinker bum" as terms of endearment. I can just picture baby's first word being "bumbum" or him starting school some day and calling kids "stinker bum" and thinking it is an ok thing to call people.
2. Leaving the door open when using the bathroom. No one needs to be scared by their parents that much.


Habits to Start:
1. Eating dinner at the table.
2. Making sure the floor is clean. I'm afraid I am guilty of letting our floors get pretty dirty. Especially with a dog who thinks it is the best thing in the world to bring in pieces of bark from the yard to show us, or even just gets leaves, twigs, burs and other random objects stuck in her sweeper feet. It seems impossible to keep up with. Vacuuming and washing the kitchen floor I think will have to be daily habits for me. Is this a normal thing for moms?

Ok, I've been thinking of a lot of other things but now these are the only ones that come to my mind. I guess it's a good thing to write them down right? So there is the start of my list. To be continued...

About the time you learn to start shutting the door when you go to the bathroom, Baby will learn to open the door and will just start coming in anyway. Privacy is a lost cause =)

Hah. Using the bathroom alone. If you shut them out they will just scream and cry at you through the door. "Mom what are you doing. let me in mama mama mama." I vacuum everyday and mop once a week. But I don't have a dog.

Ya, I can't remember the last time I used the bathroom with the door closed....in which you have to run to the bathroom, because you barely even have enough time to yourself to even pee. Forget the word privacy, after becoming a mom, it does not exist. And I sweep the floor AT LEAST twice a day, and Rhet still comes home and asks when the last time I swept was! Children = MESSES! Does that little nugget have a name yet? You're almost there!!

Haha. That's so funny. Thanks moms! Good to know I won't have to worry about the door when I'm using the bathroom for another couple of years at least. Also good to know that I'm not the only one that struggles with the floor thing too. No name yet Chelsea, unless "baby" counts. That's what we call him when we talk to him. :)
