Happy #MOMTRUTH Friday! This is not our first rodeo with children. We have so many dang kids I’m not sure who’s who anymore. No, seriously, I don’t know who is what age. You ask me a birthday, it’s gone. All I know is they’re alive, they’re fed, they’re happy. We used to be a different kind of parents though our first time around. With your first child you
savour and you think that every moment is magical. Every commercial makes it
look like it’s the best, most magical time of your life until you get eight years in and you’re like, “Wait a minute. This doesn’t end!” – Bedtime.
– Bedtime routine. It feels like a 1-hour bedtime prep. You’re doing bath, massage, songs, the right environment, chit chat, book, another brother. A book helps literacy. Do you know how long bedtime takes for three children when you implement routines? Three hours freaking later I’m like “It is bed time!” No. It should now be just wash and bed. If you have a new baby and you think
you’re doing a favour to yourself by an
hour bedtime, you are not. Bath time. “It’ll be so cute watching them splash around in the water. Look at them giggle! Ouuu lookey they’re playing with the toys!” It’s cute when you’re killing time with the first one. Fast forward to a whole bunch of kids
you’re trying to wring through the bath. I’m pretty sure the recommendation should
be like every three days for a bath. Every day can’t be good. – This bath time thing…
– Wasting water. What about meal time? You know when they’re babies you can’t wait! You ask the doctor, “when can I start solids?” You can’t wait to watch them. It’s so cute. “Oh let’s FaceTime grandma! Look they’re eating a broccoli!” – And baby led weaning? You know what? Eat the dang food and move on.
– Excuse me? Baby led weaning. You put food in front of them but they just basically don’t eat but they put it in their mouth so apparently it makes it better, you know, in life? Not to mention, the food that goes in their mouth, you have thought over what you’re gonna put in there so many times. Where’s the closest organic? What’s the best food to start? – Oh and don’t you dare start with fruit. They’ll never eat vegetables.
– Don’t start with something sweet. Eventually they find the Cheerios
on your floor and the older kids have fed them all the crap and all they want is crap. Meal time is a waste of time. Birthday parties for your precious
little angels. You plan it. Who you can invite. It’s gonna be over-the-top. It’s gonna be amazing! Fast forward, we don’t have time for that. Have you tried inviting all those kids into your house or having to pay for a birthday?
Do you know how much birthday party is? I might sound like the Grinch of
motherhood but let me tell you, birthday parties, don’t do them. Guys, you learn. Gear. Like when you’re so excited to buy your stroller and then the new crib and this swing… Then you realize, “when I’ve got this
many kids and I’ve got all that gear, that’s gonna cost a lot of money!” You know what? Toys? Get out of here. They used to be so cool, the most educational one I could ever… Get out of my house. Out of my house. Get it out of my house. You so look forward to the day when they’re actually gonna walk on their own. Oh it’s gonna be so cute. But then you can’t keep up with them. They’re running everywhere. “Stop walking! Stop running!” Oh, and those dang activities. You’re itching at six weeks old to sign them up for anything. You know what? When you’ve got three kids “I am only signing you up for what you asked for and that is it.” I’m not a full bank account and taxi service, you know what I mean? We are. You summed it up, and a
never-ending punching bag, love machine. Punch. Punch. I love you. If you’re on your first baby enjoy those precious moments, you know? Enjoy them. You never will again. Happy #MOMTRUTH Friday. Share this video. Subscribe to our YouTube channel. And like this video. What are YOU over as a mom?

  1. This is my favorite!!! Every word is spot on! Iโ€™m over cooking the food and no one is happy. 21 years in will I ever learn but god I love them

  2. Yes it all seems magical with the first. I have two and the magic has subsided. I love them to death, but oh my god!
    I've told my sister in law that parenthood is THE hardest job you will ever volunteer for!

  3. Birthday parties ๐Ÿ™Œ My first had a big party every year and then the 2nd came 4 years later and never had a party! Now there's 4 and most places only allow like 8 kids and we're half of that so NOBODY gets a party! Cake, balloon, and sing to you that's it. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. You guys hit it home with the bday parties lol I always say they are the bane of my existence lol and I'm not joking hahaha

  5. I love how you guys say exactly how each one of us moms feel when other people are just so fake and like "oh my God I love it I just love my kids so much they're just magic to my life" LOL I love my boys to death but my two is just enough! 11 and 13yr olds …..

  7. Every word is TRUE!! ๐Ÿคฃ. Slow clap for you guys, you nailed it!
    Now I have to go clean up apple sauce thatโ€™s all over the kitchen floor.

  8. We donโ€™t do birthday parties. When they are little they arenโ€™t going to remember or really have that many friends any ways. Donโ€™t get me wrong we do something fun as a family to celebrate. once the kids are older we may do parties if they ask, but most like let them pick a fun activity to do and invite their 1 or 2 closest friends to join us.

  9. I love everything about this! Bath time is it for me. 6, 3, and 6 months. I dread it all the time. I like have to mentally prepare myself and I almost have a mental breakdown. #singlemom

  10. I'm over kids thinking they need a snack every half hour, and picking at their dinner because "they aren't hungry," and THEN thirty minutes after dinner, they want a snack because they're hungry…..

  11. I love this! Iโ€™ve got 4 kids. Iโ€™m so over snack time and bath time. We also have really turned bedtime into a team drill effort. Lol

  12. Thank you ladies. I just had my 4th and final and YES things sometimes get blurred. Yes Cat they are happy, alive and fed๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. Haha a friend and I with 18m olds were just commenting about silly we were talking about wanting them to walk so bad!! So now Iโ€™m climbing all over the damn park trying to stop him from killing himself!!!

  16. I'm over clothes. They just shit in them, pee in them, grow out of them, rip them, or stain them. 3rd baby has all hand me downs and lives in sleepers. Boo yah

  18. I'm over mom bashing as a mother and being made to feel guilty I'm not doing stuff right. That's why I love u ladies because you make me feel normal and I'm doing a ok job. I'm over the tantrums and fights. Never ok with them lol.

  19. 2 boys (16 & 13) — I wish I could remember back to the last bath & towel wrap hug, the last book I read to them at bedtime, the last time I carried them. ย I think I would have cherished it a little bit more than hurrying through it. ย Also, ย we had season passes to Disneyland and went all the time. ย We stopped when they said "I don't want to go to Disney!" ย They now say — I don't remember ever going! ย They also think I never gave them HUGE themed birthday parties. ย I know it is rough, and draining at times. ย Cherish it. ย You never know when that "last" moment will be. ย It goes by so fast.

  20. Hey Girlfriends, too funny that is exactly whatโ€™s running through my head with my three sons !! In fact my children now know what I am thinking!! Lol
    Love you guys โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

  21. NAILED IT!!! 4 kids later and this made me go UMMM HMMMM!!! the whole time! baby #1 never had ketchup until he was 3 and my 4th gets Ramen Noodles for breakfast some days ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love you girls, you say what I am screaming!!

  22. Kid #1 had 3 bedtime stories each night…
    Kid #2 got 2 bedtime stories each night…
    Kid #3 was lucky if he got one per night…
    Kid #4 only gets a story if Kid #1,2 or 3 reads it to her!

    Ironically, she's smarter than all three of her brothers were at her age. Go figure!!

    Thanks for always making me laugh!!!! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

  23. You know you have too many kids when it takes you at least an hour to get everyone ready and in the car. And your car boot is so full you can't fit anything else in there. Yet when your down the road you remember amongst all the hundreds of things you've already loaded into the car, you so forgot something. Then you go back to get it, your already over getting out of the house lol

  24. I have 6 kids and this is spot on!!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•so over bedtime!๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  25. I run this house with 4 kids like a Marine Corp base at bedtime!! 3 min to wash your creases and get out…. don't even turn the water off just rotate, in the bed at 930 because if you dare get up I will turn into a monster… it's the only time of day that I am anal. It's utter chaos from 7am to 9pm everyday…. but I need that time after 930 to regroup before I lose my [email protected]#t
