Becoming a Mom Overnight

Share

This past week, I was in charge of watching my younger sisters.

Barely teenagers, they encompassed my house, my closet, my TV, and naturally my fridge.

The following questions also came into play that threw me off as well.

“When are you going to pick me up?”

“Will you get me some Sean White gum?”

“Can we watch the vampire diaries?”

“Chicken noodle soup, is there anything else we can have?”

“Can I wear this necklace?”

“Why don’t you have any junk food?”

“Don’t you have Netflix?”

“Can we go now??”

And the list goes on.

The reason why I bring this up is because it threw me for a loop. I’m a woman of strict routine so when you throw two teenagers into the mix, there goes life as i know it! Stop a minute to imagine with me, if you will.

I’m a newlywed, with my very set schedule. I get up, go work, come home, make dinner, go to the gym, and go to bed. I didn’t get 9 months to adjust, like having a baby. It was interesting. We went from the two of us in the house to adding two teenage girls into the mix. Like a tornado through a small town, we were caught in quite a whirlwind!

I’m not complaining, don’t get me wrong. They’re my sisters, so I have to love them dearly of course. But this was a new experience for us! lol – makes you think twice about having babies, I’ll tell you that much!

So, I say to you. In a government that’s all concerned about birth control, let’s just say last week’s birth control was free.

Hearts,
