Motherhood in 6 Words: Let’s Get Creative!

One of my friends, a mother of two, recently posted on her blog about how she was inspired by a book entitled Not Quite What I Was Expecting: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure.  You simply write a statement about life in six words.  My friend decided to do several about motherhood.  Here are a couple:

No thanks. I’m good with two.

When do I get adult conversation?

I thought it would be a fun exercise for myself (and for you!) to try cranking out a few of these before we jump into the weekend.  Here I go, and these are completely off-the-cuff:

Lucy is such a cute name.

When will he quit his pacifier?

My little boy’s initials spell “EAR”.

Time goes quickly when they’re tiny.

I’ll blink and she’s in college.

Hand-me-downs are great for small budgets.

Thank God for Target’s red stickers.

Potty-training is my least favorite part.

I should go to bed early.

Wow.  I’ve gotta say, once you get going, it’s hard to stop!  This would be a fun little activity for a baby shower (but then, I was an English teacher, so maybe I’m just a nerd.) Care to add your own?  Hit comment and have at it!

    How about Motherhood in haiku format?

    Chupon, pacifier
    Whatever you call it now
    She won’t give it up

    Pick it up, hurry
    We have company tonight
    No coloring there!

    Even though I’m tired
    There are clothes and floors to clean
    Guess I’ll call the maid
    (which is doable when maids only cost $6/hr)

    Put your milk on the table!

    You can’t take your pants off.

    Turn around and get back here!

    Yes, I will turn on Elmo.

    Do you want a banana? YAY!

    First one that comes to mind: What can I do during naptime? Also,

    The Terrible Twos have begun early.

    One little smile melts my heart.

    Or perhaps my favorite inquiry from non-stay-at-home friends: What do you do all day?

    Because I said so, that’s why.

    Please stop picking your nose – gross.

    You have to try one bite.

    I love you more than anything.

    Did you brush your teeth yet?

    Close the pantry door right now.

    Is my brain turning to mush?

    There is never a dull moment.

    Where are all my stinky babies?

    You smell like milk and giggles.

    I LOVE that laugh of hers!

    One more time and I will…!!!

    Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? (me, tapping my mouth with my fingers)
