GOOD MORNING VIETNAM! ...or just my household. Breakfast has been devoured (exploded), everybody is still in their jammies, and I'm walking around with someone else's vomit on my shirt... again. Huh... sounds like college! I wonder what else hasn't changed all that much?
All Nighters - But in college it's one or two in a row and not the hellish, exhaust-o-fog that goes on for months (but feels like years) with a newborn.
Ish - It's all drama, tears, and fits of misplaced passion... it could be over who is sleeping with who or who just needs to sleep.
Food - It's all cafeteria food, really. French fries, canned veggies, and nuggets of various and unidentifiable meats... Oh and pudding. Pudding is GOLD...
Ick - Why am I sticking too the floor? Is it food? Is it bodily fluids? You know what, don't answer that. Yeah... sad when this could work for a frat house OR my kitchen.
Weight Gain - Except in college it's a cute little 5 -15 pounds. With kids it's, well... let's not go there. Slimfast my ass...
Effing Laundry - Why do babies (or students) need clean socks, anyway?
It's All About The Boobs - Back then it was all about that tiny little top that just barely kept them in and now I just want a nursing top that makes it easy for me to get them out.
Questionable Bathing Habits - Every dorm (or house) has "that kid". You know who I mean...the one that refuses to scrub ANYTHING.
$$$ - Where did all my money go? Beer or Babies, it's the same issue.
I Know Nothing - It's just that then I didn't realize how stupid I was and now I am fully aware of how little I actually know.
But things really are quite different now, aren't they? I mean, I have crows feet and gray hair now so... *sigh*
