A Wife Loved Like The Church

Posts Tagged ‘Olympic Parenting

Since adding Joseph into the fold, I’ve realized life has gotten exponentially busier. And it didn’t take me long to realize that being mama to three is quite the feat. Kinda like playing an Olympic sport.

And I started wondering, if parenting were an Olympic game, which sports would there be?

1. Coffee Consumption – Measuring not only rate of consumption, but amount as well.

2. Sleepless Production – Measuring productive output based on lack of sleep.

3. Promptness – How close parent arrives at the time they said they would {I’m not winning this one anytime soon}.

4. Readiness – How long it takes to get out the door with three kids – everyone dressed, moms with make up on.

5. Day Preparedness – How prepared you are for getting poop off your baby, yourself and your car {which totally happened to me this last weekend}.

6. Juggling – Measuring ability to do fifteen things at once, without losing your mind.

7. Hosting – Measuring ability to host a holiday, without losing your mind.

8. Bathroom Quickness – How fast you can dart to the bathroom while the kids aren’t looking.

9. Conversation Holding – How long can you hold “adult” conversation without using the words “potty”, “naptime”, “binky”, etc.

10. Longevity – How long can you go re-wearing the same jeans before someone notices {I’m on week two…}.

Can we agree, all parents deserve gold metals?!? Yeah, we totally do.
