Vintage Pampers Ad

I love how the seasoned mom comes off a little bitter, a little pushy and a little bitchy. While the mom-to-be is laughing and floating through the commercial.



When I was pregnant with my first child I always thought the longing looks from other moms were about wishing they were knocked up. I now realize they just longed to go back to that first pregnancy ignorance.

That time and place where you imagined yourself lovingly changing your wee ones diaper. Not chiseling liquid ass off the doorframe at 3 am because you weren't quick enough with the new diaper.

Aaaah memories. Strangely enough I would do it again if I could go back in my mommy time machine. Sigh. Ok, I need to go kiss some fuzzy sleeping heads before they wake up 16 years old and asking for the car keys.

The years fly by, you're right. I wish it could slow down a little bit.

It's definitely with rose-colored glasses that I look longingly at newborns. But as much as I love my sleep and wearing cute underwear, I do remember - and cherish - those early weeks and months.

So true! My youngest is going to start kindergarten this fall and my 8 year old has turned into a little man. Where has the time gone!

I totally get my baby fixes by holding other peoples babies...and then give them back as soon as their diaper fills or they start screaming! It's nice...
I hate that time has gone by sooo fast...but I also LOVE that I can get more then two hours in a row of sleep and that my children can wipe their own liquid asses... ;)

Thanks for your comments. Sigh. Nice to know that we aren't alone isn't it.

Jen - I pretend my 3 year old son can wipe his own liquid ass. Then I just buy more underpants when I see skids.

My son is only one and I'm ALREADY getting the itch to have another baby. I just need to remember back to the sleepless nights to snap myself out of it though!
