Re: You know you're a mom when...

I can relate to most of them.

...when you can take a full shower while holding ds who is either nursing or sleeping. Its the only way to get your shower in because he starts crying, just wants to be held.

Being spit up on, puked on, peed on, puked on doesnt even bother you, and it doesnt even have to be your kid. You are just used to it.

You have been spit up on and didnt even realize it. (yep that one happend just a few minutes ago. On my shoulder and wearing sleeveless, and didnt even notice it.)

Re: You know you're a mom when...

And this poem just because I love it, and fits in so nicely.

Mommy Brain
- copyright 1998 Carlotta Eike Stankiewicz
If you've left the crayons to melt in the car,
And forgotten just where the car keys are,
There's a perfectly good way to explain:
You see, you've come down with "Mommy Brain."
When you're not sure where the past 8 hours went,
Or whether the phone bill check's been sent,
If you've left the laundry drying in the rain,
It's just--you guessed it--Mommy Brain.

If you find yourself chatting for hours on end
About diaper prices with your cyberfriends,
You've just caught a particularly virulent strain
Of that affliction known as Mommy Brain.

If you left your bags at the grocery store
Or completely forgot what you went there for,
If you called the cat by your baby's name,
You can bet that Mommy Brain's to blame.

And if you know the words to "Goodnight Moon" by heart,
Or you study your sleeping babe like a work of art,
If you're always surprised by how time is flying,
And the thought of that first birthday starts you crying.....

It's unavoidable girls, and I feel your pain,
For I, too, suffer from Mommy Brain.
But I'll admit one thing--of this I'm sure:
I hope they never find a cure.

So very true and sweet! Thanks for sharing!

I don't really have anything new from what the other mamas have said. I do like what someone said about using a breast pad to clean up a spilled drink, I have done that and used it as a coaster! Good thing they are washable!

Re: You know you're a mom when...

when ds is rocking sideways in his chair and you've told him countless times to stop, then give up and think, well, he'll only do it once...

when you stare at your sleeping kids tummy to make sure they are still breathing.

when you use tummy in adult conversation...

I think she heard about the lingerie that she got me for Christmas being returned and then the money spent on sippy cups....

Serious one:
When the second your baby was born was the first time you truly loved something more than yourself and would give your life in an instant for that little someone you just met.

Fun one:
You refuse to wear white or any other remotely pale colors cause you know you'll get dirty before walking out the door anyway. At least the dirt doesn't show up on darker colors (as bad).

Re: You know you're a mom when...

you know you're a mom when

you lock the baby gate, leaving the kids in the living room, to go hide behind the open frige door to eat your secret stash of hershey kisses so you dont have to share. And when the oldest peeks over the gate and asks what you are doing you dont feel a darn bit bad about lying and saying "oh nothing"

Re: You know you're a mom when...

when you know all the lyrics to your children's "shows", and sing them automatically no matter what adult happens to be in the room.

you become that mom you thought was disgusting by licking your finger and wiping your ds's dirty cheek.
