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

you can carry a toddler having a fit under one arm and a newborn under the other with the mail stuck in your teeth because the walk back from the mailbox ended in disaster. (and not drop anything)

Can you tell we're having a bad week?

You don't think twice about holding your two year old down in public in order to pick that pesky booger out of his nose.
You find raisins in your purse that weren't raisins when they went in there.
I do this all the time. My dh calls me a monkey and now my dd says "Mommy, did you get the yucky boogie?" every time I go anywhere near her nose!

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



Great Thread!

So many are already listed.

You get mad at dh for not using his b'day/Christmas money on diapers/wool for ds like you did.

You can sit through the fit even though everyone else is about to explode inside (ds is just learing to throw fits )

You can pump 8 oz of milk on the way to work and again on the way home but most importantly you can do it with both hands on the wheel.

The crying starts the second you walk through the door, even in the lo is in a different room and can't even see you.

You can't remember the last time yourself until you are sitting on the toilet at work feeling lonely.

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

I learned from my mom, she's a pro at nursing and ________ (fill in the blank, she can do it all) back before laws were so tight she could even drive and nurse a baby (small non-busy back roads in our rural area~no freeways or anything!)

Mine is when you don't notice things like drool and spit up, it's just part of your outfit now so you just deal.

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

You can tell that they changed actors and Barney's voice is different. And the "new" Barney voice grates on your nerves, because you know it's not the real Barney.

You find yourself having conversations with people about kids' shows. (I get annoyed that the creatures on Jack's Big Music Show now say, "Who IS it?" instead of "Come IN!", but the creatures just come in anyway, for instance.)

You don't even bother to put on anything other than a t-shirt or sweats, because you know you're just going to get food/drool/spitup/whatever on whatever you're wearing.

You can take a shower in two minutes and actually manage to clean all of your body (minus your hair.)

Taking a shower that includes shaving AND washing your hair feels like a vacation.

For me, it's my right arm. And I pulled a muscle on the left side of my back because of it. (Something about leaning over to lift with the right.)

You carefully pick out your LO's outfit for the day, and throw on the first thing you see for yourself.

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

You find yourself sitting on the floor a few times a day with the vaccume hose in your hand.
Food on your pants and you just scrape at it with your finger nail and you are good to go
Sitting on the toilet nursing a baby.
Getting everyone else ready to go then right before you walk out the door you realize you have to be there in 10 minuts and you still haven't brushed your hair.
Never having your very own drink.
