When you are a mommy, you will ...

I've had one of those days, and it has made me start thinking about the things you don't really think about when you sign on to be someone's mommy. I thought it would be fun to start a list.

I'll start.

When you are a mommy ... you will touch poop (many times, in fact.)

Anyone else want to play?

Find yourself "catching" puke and spit up

start to sound like your mother

retract all of your "I'll never or my kids will never" statements

Use your own shirt or your child's shirt to wipe a little nose in a pinch.
Not even flinch when touching poop, snoob, drool or vomit (ok, I still flinch a little on this one).
Get everything you didn't get before about "other people's kids" and "my kid will never..."

Climb through tunnels that are smaller than you, slide down slides of all shapes and sizes, and negotiate exchanges with other very assertive children when you take your child to the playground.

Know that your LO's really don't need name brand clothes and shoes knowing that they will either grow out of it or tear it up in record time.

Carry the diaper bag to the grocery store without the baby because you don't want to have to deal with transferring all of your stuff back to your purse and everything you need is already in the bag.

Walk into a room and tally up all of the unsafe baby zones like outlets without plugs, doors they can open, drawers the can get into, etc.

Hum or sing children's songs to yourself and your kids are no where near you. I've gotten some funny looks because of this.

Amen!

Be the last to eat at any meal.

Feed your kids all of *your* food if they are actually willing to eat it.

Lie in bed having to pee so bad but not able to get up because it will wake the baby.

Sit on the couch for 2 hours with a sleeping baby in your lap unable to eat, pee, or drink anything but totally willing to be there because he is actually asleep!

On that note, do ANYTHING to get your kids to sleep. (or eat!)

When your heart melts literally and you get butterflies in your stomach when your 3 yr old looks up at you and says
"I wuv du mama", thats the best feeling in the world, or when your baby has a poopy diaper, you change her in the back of your Suburban, reach in the diaper bag, only to realize that you are out of diapers but do have a diaper cover, and seriously think about taking your shirt off to use as a "prefold" in the babys diaper...LOL
(yes, this happened to me last weekend, yes, I had a tank top on underneath my shirt, and yes, I used it like a "prefold"....lol
