Re: You know you are a momma when....

Right after DS was born, the nurse started cleaning me off. I noticed some brown streaks on the inside of my thigh and told her, "Oops, I think there's still a little (blood) there." She looked at me and said, "Oh, yep, but that's not from you, that's from your son." Yes, my "little angel" had pooped meconium on me already, only seconds after being out of the womb. Now getting a bit of poo on my hands while cleaning diapers is really no biggie. (Although still not my favorite part of cloth diapering or anything! )

Re: You know you are a momma when....

This morning I saw a scorpion in our living room. I had my newborn and my 2 year old. My first instinct was to grab them both and put them somewhere safe, although I was barefoot and scared myself. My babies come first Oh, and my DH is great, he rushed home from work to save the day. He is currently moving all the furniture in the living room and play room and vacuuming and spraying bug spray.

Re: You know you are a momma when....

First trip to the store baby-less. An itty bitty is crying a few aisles over and my milk starts leaking. Instead of rushing home or to a bathroom, I think to myself:
"If I leave now, I won't have time to come back today and I can't get through today without some Oreos"
Continued shopping even after the nursing pads and their back ups gave out, the stains on my shirt where the size of tea saucers by the time I got to check out. The stares didn't even bother me. I was just happy the double stuff Oreos where on sale buy one get one half off. The thing that really concerned me? Where to hide the cookies so hubby and the big kids wouldn't eat them all. Didn't even change my shirt until I'd nursed LO and put all the groceries away.

Re: You know you are a momma when....

I was holding DS up over me (like when I was lying on the couch) when he was like 4-5 months old. He was cracking up, then all of a sudden, he puked all over my face. In the eye, down my neck. It was lovely!
DH just sat there laughing instead of helping me right away.

This has happened to me too! Pretty sure I got the puke in my mouth though!

My mommy badge moment would probably be the first poop blow out with DD1. It was of course in the middle of the night.... So here I am, bleary eyed, and more concerned about keeping baby from crying so not to wake the DH. I think we ended up in the shower because I gave up trying to wipe all the poo off of her! LOL

Re: You know you are a momma when....

i left my son on the floor to air out and all i hear is my husband and daughter screaming "he's pooping on the floor!!!"

it was sooooo bad, and he squirmed his lil butt all in it and ground it in real good. finally after all was clean.. i got floor level and sniffed the carpet to make sure the smell was gone. lol


once me and my daugther went out to eat with a friend and her daughter at a chinese restaurant. somehow my daughter got choked on a fried chinese noodle thing, while my friend was freaking out and turning red, i calmly continued eating with my left hand and scooped the noodle out of her mouth with my right hand. it wasn't lodged in her throat. my friend kept staring at me like i was supermom. but eh, no need to freak out and make the situation worse!
