1. There are always dishes in the sink. Like the second I’m done doing dishes, I blink and there are more dishes. It’s crazy. As soon as Ava’s old enough, this is the first chore I’m teaching her.
2. Coming up with and cooking meals that your toddler will actually eat. Number one, ugh, I hate having to cook all the time. I used to enjoy cooking and baking, but now it just means more dishes. I’m sitting here writing this post procrastinating on making dinner. And making something your kid actually wants to eat? It’s a crapshoot.
3. Dora the Explorer (or any of her counterparts). I don’t really need to elaborate here, but yah, we have every episode on DVR because I can’t even stand watching the same episode over and over again. Mainly, I miss watching the news and reality TV.
4. Folding tiny human clothing. Nothing is more tedious than folding miniature versions of your own clothes. Okay, I lied, folding infant clothing is probably worse. But again, it still feels endless.
5. You’re picking up this 28474882 times a day.
She’s getting better with cleaning up when I ask, but as soon as one thing is picked up, she’s dumping more stuff on the ground. I wish I could just let it go and not be the pick up police because I know it’s not going to stay clear for more than 2 minutes anyway, but I can’t. Just looking at this picture kicks in my anxiety.
Okay, enough mom complaining. But, she’s lucky she’s cute.
