    I just make it up as I go along. If you're confident enough, every one will think you know what you're doing :)

    I've been faking it for over 20 years.
    I don't know if anyone has figured it out yet.

    Shhh! :-$

    With the rapidly changing rules, standards, and expectations of society, everybody's winging it nowadays.  Those who seem to have their shit together are just better actors than the rest of us.

    I thought I was winging it with one kid, now I KNOW I'm winging it with two. Survival mode.

    I agree with this. And I know I'm a horrible actor, lol
    There is nothing to be gained from treating others poorly.

    Don't be a dick.

    I'm in the trenches with you @backwoodsmommy.  2 year old twin boys here too.   There is no manual for this shit.  Maybe we should make one?  LOL

    Seriously @TorturedbyTWINS we could make Scary Twin Mommies: Don't Flush Your Brother's Binky!

    @Backwoodsmommy, why is is that I can picture you, or some other mom standing there screaming at the top of her lung, "No,Don't flush that it's your brother's binky!" as you can visually see his binky going bye bye.
    You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

    OC, I'm totally with you!

    I remember being a child and thinking that life would become SOOO much easier when I was an adult and had a better understanding of how to navigate life and more control of my life and environment.
    ...Well, I've been an adult for some time now and I STILL have NO idea what I'm doing. The comforting part is: NO ONE ELSE knows what they're doing either! Seriously, the more people I talk to, the more I realize this! (:

    I am completely winging it. Everything. I'm just rolling with the punches. I know exactly two people in my life who legitimately have it together, and it makes me pretty freaking jealous. But fuck it. I like you guys better.

    I no longer have even a loose plan - full-time winging it.  I have come to the realization that my parents were winging it and everyone turned out just fine.  I don't think anyone truly has it all together.

    A plan NEVER works for me.  What works with one child doesn't work with the next and my view on things change as I/they get older.  Been winging it for years.  If we all make it home at night and get up to a brand new day we've been successful!
