Things I Don't Miss

Getting up at 2am and 6am for feedings (or 1:30, 3:30 and 6am)
Trying to bottle feed two babies at once

Feeding 8 times a day, or 6 times a day
Taking temperatures rectally
Sucking the snot out of noses with the bulb syringe (actually this is sorta satisfying)
Holding a baby with two hands, in constant fear that their useless necks will break
Weird poop
Discussions about weird poop (ongoing today)
Having to really check if that tiny diaper is wet
Being so tired I cry
Baby food - meat varieties
Carrying a diaper bag with: 6 diapers, wipes, bibs, baby food, spoons, puffs, 2 bottles, ice pack, 4 burp clothes, 2 changes of clothes, 4 toys, 2 pacifiers - all to go to Chick-Fil-A.
Crying that I cannot decipher
Crying that goes on for hours (Madeline)

Trimming those paper thin finger nails
That belly button stub
The smell of spit up
All that stuff that happens after giving birth "down there"

What else? - it is so easy to forget/block out these things
