You will need to know how to make paper airplanes.  

… and not ones that immediately nose-dive.  They will need to actually fly.  Obviously, the further the better but they won’t need to record-breakers. 

Advice:

Practice, learn to make them quickly and stock up on paper.  Try making them in the dark or with your hands behind your back for practice.  Practice, practice, practice.  And if you find that you can make a paper airplane that’ll stay afloat for 5 seconds, while holding a baby on one hip and stirring dinner on the stove with another…. well, my friend… YOU HAVE ARRIVED.

Here’s some websites that will help you develop your paper airplane skillz:

You will be asked on a daily basis to assess the awesome-ness of teeny biceps.    

… and sometimes elbows (the younger ones tend to forget which part of their arm is the muscle).

Advice: 

NEVER be to busy and ALWAYS be impressed.  It might encourage more frequent assessment requests but when it comes to being a mom to boys, it’s impossible to over-compliment the muscles. 

I’m a firm believer of building my kids up and  if that means I have to oooh and aaahhh over sweet , scrawny little arms all day, you better believe I’ll do it.
