  • you have to go to the bathroom and say you have to go to the potty instead
  • instead of eating crackers, you end up snacking on Goldfish
  • your idea of cardio is chasing after your toddler
  • the song that you get stuck in your head is "the itsy bitsy spider."

you sweep and come up with crayons, snacks, and hair clips/hot wheels.
you have to keep repeating: no you cant go outside in your undies, stop hitting the dog, thank you for being "helpful" but i have to do it now, stop jumping on the furniture, no you cant have cereal for every meal, and my favorite is spelling out words.

 - Yo Gabba Gabba songs might as well be the sound track to your life.

- saying things like "Don't stick that in your nose." or, "Did you wipe your butt?  Lets go wipe your butt." Don't even phase you.

- you have to explain why the turtles do not like bubble baths.

- you clap and cheer each time your kid goes potty

-you say potty in reference to the restroom... even to other adults

- the word "why" makes you want to rip your hair out.

You know you have a toddler when:
You lose your car keys and immediately look in the bin.
You hear your mothers voice say no you have to leave your pants on, because I said so.
You know you'd trade even 5 minutes at the office for even a second of playing with tonka trucks and hot wheels in the dirt anyday.

"Nooooo, don't bite the dog!"
"Don't eat that, it's dog food!"
"Yuck! Don't chew on the dog's toy!"

Do you see a pattern here? Lol

Others are "don't lick your brother", don't stick that there!" and for boys " quit playing with your wiener!"

You reach into your purse and pull out a bag of wipes, snacks, a diaper and a single sock.  Then you realize that in the midst of your full purse, you forgot your wallet at home.
