You know you're a mommy when...

Hey ladies!!

I'll bet there isn't one mom out there that can't think of even just one stressful, frustrating event / situation where they themselves or their partners did something they couldn't look back on now and laugh...why wait till days / weeks / months later to be able to laugh at it / yourself, see the lighter side of the situation now / in the moment. Here's a couple of "funnies" to get you started...

  • ...you undress BOTH you and your child before each meal to save on laundry
  •  ...on your first ‘date night' since baby was born, you settle for hitting up a fast food restaurant, skip out early on the movie, and are in bed by 9pm....and you're overjoyed!!

I plan to continue to post  more "funnies" on a regular basis in hopes of bringing some joy and maybe even laughter to other moms out there.

Hope you enjoy!!

You finally lose the massive diaper bag, and still keep diapers in your purse!  (my name is Lindsay too!)

When you refer to yourself as mommy- to everyone, including other peoples' kids. :)

When purse shopping you take into consideration pockets for sippy cups.

Coming home from a day of errands to find you've had spit up on your shirt the entire time...and not finding it that big of a deal

Walking around town and noticing you have your babies poop on your shirt!

The phrase "don't eat the ____ (some random, non edible object)" becomes part of your daily vocabulary.

My all time favorite is when in a room full of children, one hollers "Mommy" and every woman in there responds, including me.

Lindsay4ambit, Oh that is too funny and I can see it totally being true!! My friend had breast pads in her purse for months and months.

Great name BTW:) Were you named after anyone or have you passed down your name to a child??

OliviaW - I have yet to experience this but sadly that's cause I can't remember the last time i went 'purse" shopping LOL

Lovemboth - that's what being a mom is all about right! I think we could probably shout out the word "NO" in about 5 different launguages too if we thought it would have a greater impact!

MomBowen - So true and yet must fade at some point (far far down the road) cause I (now 33 years of age) find I now have to yell my mom's first name to get her attention - perhaps "mom" doesn't register anymore or maybe she's just choosing to tune it out LOL
