What do you “cheap out” on as a mom?
I completely cheap out on buying bottled water at the movies. I’d rather splurge
on movie tickets for 8 kids and sneak in my own water than spend $5 per water bottle. I can’t help it. I learned this from my maternal grandmother. My cousin and I were the only kids at Red Sox games that had to eat a sack lunch. I’m not sure what was worse: the smell of tuna salad on my hands all day or the looks we got from all the cool, hot-dog-eating kids.
Are you more hormonal today than you were before you became a mother?
I think I may be. If it makes you feel better, my mood wavers from Road Rage-like Mom to Annoyingly Happy and Euphoric Mom” at least once a month, just about every month, to my husband’s dismay.
Are you an insomniac? Sleep deprivation is my shame to claim as a mother. It makes me unproductive, sluggish, bitchy and not so fun to be around. (Sad but true, I still suffer from occasional sleeplessness even though both of my kids have been out of the crib for years.)
What is your worst sleep habit after becoming a mom? I have two: Falling asleep
after reading to my daughter or falling asleep while watching a movie at 7:30 p.m. I wake up 30 minutes later, spending the rest of the night trying desperately to get back to sleep.
