1. Being a full-time working mom and liking it. Admittedly, at first, it was really really difficult not being with my baby all day while I was at work. Especially now that he is on the move (constantly), I realize I have it easy compared to stay at home moms.  I love being with Thomas…  but I’m worn out by the time I get to work at 9 after feeding, playing, chasing, and changing – and that’s only two hours.  All day – woah!  Work is a break. And since I don’t have a choice, I’m not going to feel guilty about it!!

2. Not having a perfectly organized & clean house. This awesome blog post calls those shiny, happy, unrealistic (but beautiful) Land of Nod photos of ridiculous nurseries, playrooms, etc. “org porn.” OMG that is funny, and has made me laugh all day AND put a lil’ perspective on my clutter.

3. Not breast-feeding for a year as originally planned. That’s right… I transitioned at 5 months and stopped at 6 months (gasp!) Pumping all day at work got the better of me.  The first time I mixed a bottle of formula, I was hooked. No machine, other babies have survived on formula, 30 seconds to make instead of 30 minutes… wha-what??  No wonder it’s popular.

4. Driving a Mini Van. Actually, this one is to brag because I’ve never felt a twinge of guilt.  I drive a mini van and the doors open with the key remote – na na nanana!
