You know you are a mom when.......?

(found this.. thought a few were cute.. feel free and add your own)

You know you’re a mom when:

1. … you can no longer wear black, for fear of massive spit up marks
2. …you sing “Dora Dora Dora the Explorer” in the shower.
3. … you believe that macaroni and cheese should become it’s own food group.
4. … play dates have taken over your life!
5. …you sing to the Elmo CD that is playing on your radio long after you’ve dropped your children off at daycare.
6. …you can’t wait to hug your own kids after you see something troubling on the news.
7. …you lick your finger to wipe the face of a child AND suddenly stop when you realize that child ISN’T YOURS!
8. …your baby is sick down your front. It misses your t-shirt and trickles down your chest and you are actually happy – because now it saves you having to rake around trying to find anything remotely keen to wear.
9. …you reach into your pocket and pull out a crayon, a matchbox car and a dirty sock.
10. …you have no issues sniffing another person’s butt for a poopie diaper.
11. …you think yourself lucky to get out of the house without visible a spit-up
stain.
12. …a night on the town means taking the kids out past 6 pm.
13. …a packet of crisps (chips), and a chocolate bar is considered a hearty breakfast.
14. …you count the days until your next girl’s night.
15. …your purse contains packages of Pepperage farm goldfish, a juice box, assorted wrappers and a binky.
16. …you give up your cool car for a minivan, and within a few weeks, you really start to like the van, and use phrases like “It’s just so convenient.” And you really mean it.
17. …you memorize and juggle more schedules and activities than American Airlines, and when people ask you where you live, you say, “In a tan minivan on I-95″
18. …you end up tying your husband’s shoes, or cutting your in-laws meat, before you realize your doing it.
19. …you ask where “the potty” is.
20. …you look through family pictures, and realize there aren’t very many of you, because you are always behind the camera yourself.
21. …you begin to wonder whether fed-exing the kids to grandma’s is an idea who’s time has come.
22. “whine” is no longer simply red or white.
23. …when people ask you what you do, you tell them you are a “pediatric logistics specialist”!
24. …sleeping in means… sleeping IN the middle of three little bodies!!!
25. …you just gave your kids two kittens even though you’re allergic to cats!
26. …you’d rather listen to your 6 year old’s music than your own.
27. …when you walk into another room in your house to get something and by the time
you get there you forget what you were going to get.

Okay when your snuggled up nice and tight with your almost 4 year old, taking a sweet nap...wake up because your really hott, and realize, while sleeping snuggled up with you, he has just peed all over you in his nice deep sleep. :) My story from today.

The first thing you hear in the morbing is "Mom, I'm done!! Come wipe my butt!!" (I actually miss my alarm clock lol)
Your living room has more toys, and baby stuff than furniture.
You have cotton candy stuck in the upholstry in your car.
You find yourself saying the same thing, at the same time as your mom to your child when your out together.
Your first thought when you see a cute haircut isn't "I wonder how I'd look with that?" but "Do I actually have the time to make it look like that?"
and
Your about to the point that you think iCarly is a soap op (I love iCarly, how sad is that?)

When your in a store and some kid yells mom and you answer before you realize it wasn't your kid yelling!

When you get to where your going and freak out because your kids arent in the car.......because you left them with a sitter.

When you have a friend come over for the first time and tell her.....the kitchens through there, help yourself, the livingrooms here, make yourself at home and the pottys down the hall, extra potty paper is under the sink..............
