You know you are a mom when...?

You shampoo your hair twice because you accidentally grabbed your SO's shampoo the second time thinking it was the conditioner while you were distracted by having to yell "PUT MY TAMPONS AND PADS BACK!!" for the umpteenth time.

What is yours?

  • You know you're a Mom when you use your shirt as a kleenex, a glass of water at a restaurant to clean a messy face and you watch every diaper for the dime your son swallowed.

  • You know you're a mom when an old friend from high school (who graduated 2 years above you) invites you to a party Saturday night...a party his parents don't know about. When the words "Hey, you have fun with that but we really can't make it, I don't feel comfortable decieving your parents like that, when they're the homeowners and responsible for what happens there." ...then you're a parent.

  • When you walk through the grocery store having a conversation with an infant who cant speak!! I used to do that all the time, or when you can talk on the phone, wash disshes, brush you teeth, and make dinner all at the same time.

  • When you've been out doing running to the grocery store, the bank, etc. and you look down and realize you've done all this with a big glob of ketchup or snot on your shirt...

    When you know all the words to a Dr Suess book by heart...

    When you can say something like, "I've already told you twice, DO NOT use my hairbrush on the dog!" or, "I don't think that the stuffed rabbit likes green beans." without cracking up at how funny that sounds.

    When you can't have fun going out because you are constantly wondering if you made sure to leave the babysitter enough clean diapers.

  • When you open the washing machine & it is entirely full of stuffed animals b/c your LO puked in the night & everything had to be washed.

    Or, when you automatically move every glass off the edge of the table so it doesn't get knocked off.

  • When you find yourself in a group of women and you're all swaying back and forth unconciously.
    When most of your phone conversations are spent hollering, "Can't you see I'm on the PHONE?!!!"
    When you turn down an invitation to go out and sing karaoke because the very thought makes you so tired you want to cry.
    When your DH sends you out so you can have a break and all you do is think about your kids. :)
