Hilarious: 50 honest motherhood priority shifts

I'll be honest. I was one of those high-heel-wearing, freshly laundered, stylish-haired, toe nails painted, whole foods buying, mid-twenty something females a little over a year ago...... hey, I am a cosmetologist. Still am! But last March, my world went topsy turvy in that  most cataclysmic sort of way. I gave birth to my beautiful daughter.

As I documented my pregnancy, my delivery, and those first few delirious weeks at home, I started to witness some changes in the sparkly lifestyle I had just spent twenty-six proud years cultivating. So, as I sit sprawled on my couch, nursing my little one, I decided to capture just a few more of these note worthy adjustments and share them all with you. Women and uteruses around the globe, feel free to agree. Laughs welcome. Mommy dribbles encouraged. (the mothers out there get that one) I can be lewd and blunt, so enjoy at your own discretion.

Priorities from pre baby life to post baby.

Here we go.

  1. I don't need a bra today.          1. Crap. I need a bra every day.
  2. I wont wear a bra today.          2. Dang it. None of my bras fit!
  3. Fine, I'll just go braless anyway. 3. Breastmilk everywhere.
  4. Lets drop $35 on a fancy pedicure and pick up highly over-priced frozen yogurt on our fabulous girls day out!            4. Babe! I need some darn nursing pads for this darn nursing bra! 
  5. I just slept till like noon.        5. Is it 12:00 as in noon or 12:00 as in midnight?? Its all the same.
  6. Remember that pedicure we just got last week? Lets get another one!    6. Praise heaven, the baby is finally asleep. I'll clip these raptor claws taking over my toenails.
  7. I want the Cheesecake Factory.      7. Did I eat this week?
  8.  I'll have the Lobster special.           8. Graham crackers? Really? That's the only thing in my pantry? Eating all of them....

  10. Flatulents ? Gross.                         10. I toot all day. It's out of control.
  11. I can drive while singing to the radio, texting, checking Facebook, and applying mascara at the same time.                                        11. Multitasking? I just breastfeed and rocked the baby back to sleep while going number two. Nailed it.
