1. you reach into the 12-pack box for a Coke and it’s empty…

2. you see a glass full of orange juice sitting on the counter that one of the kids poured (to the brim) but didn’t bother to drink…

3. you find your tools out in the front yard (usually AFTER a good rain)…

4. most of your tools are rusty (see number 3)…

5. you find sucker sticks stuck to the carpet in the car…

6. you lift the toilet lid to find a nice present that never got flushed…

7. you lift the toilet lid to find it full of toilet paper because IT COULDN’T FLUSH…

8. you find CLEAN clothes in the dirty clothes hamper because they were too lazy to put them up…

9. you find your little tree (that you’ve been nursing along) without any leaves because your daughter picked them all off so that she could make a “salad.”

10. your computer keyboard smells like peanut butter…

11. there’s a nice long scratch down the side of your car that JUST HAPPENS to line up with bicycle handlebars…

12. you hear someone running on your roof and look outside just in time to see them jumping to the ground…

13. your son comes to you in tears, holding his arm, because he fell while jumping off a ramp in INLINE SKATES!…

14. you catch one of your kids trying to talk the other kid into holding onto the garage door as he’s about to push the “up” button…

15. one of your sons nearly cracks his head open because he tried to stand on a basketball…

I’m sure there are more but my head is starting to hurt…

You know your a mom when you can quote their favorite Disney movie.

You know your a mom when you don't care how you look anymore but like hell if your kids go out without their hair brushed and clean clothes. I've done this one.

 You know you're a mom when you can sing all the theme songs to Dora, Bubble Guppies, and Team UmiZoomi but can't remember the last song you heard on the radio!

You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

You want to take out a contract on the kid who broke your child's favorite toy and made him/her cry.

You have time to shave only one leg at a time.

You hide in the bathroom to be alone.

You child throws up, and you catch it.

Someone else's kid throws up at a party, and you keep eating.

You consider finger paint to be a controlled substance.

You mastered the art of placing large quantities of pancakes and eggs on a plate without anything touching.

Your child insists that you read Once Upon a Potty out loud in the lobby of the doctor's office, or, better yet, in the lobby of a Grand Central Station... and you do it.

You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night talking about and checking on the kids.

You hope ketchup is a vegetable because it's the only one your child eats.

You cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons, while your child chews his toast into the shape of a gun.

You can't bear the thought of your son's first girlfriend.

You hate the thought of his wife even more.

You donate to charities in the hope that your child won't get that disease.

You find yourself cutting your husband's sandwiches into unusual shapes.

You fast-forward through the scene when the hunter shoots Bambi's mother.

You use your own saliva to clean your child's face.

You obsess when your child clings to you upon parting during his first month at school, then obsess when he skips in without looking back the second time.

You can't bear to give away baby clothes -- it's so final.

You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when you say, "Not in your good clothes!"

You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.

You read that the average five year old asks 437 questions a day and feel proud that your kid is above average.

You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything in the world...
