You know you're a mom when...

One of my friends started a facebook post of, "You know you are a parent when..." and I had a bunch of things to add to it, so rather than post it all there I thought I would make a blog post about it and then have you add to it!

~ When you use your clothing to wipe a nose
~ When you consider five straight hours of sleep at night a great nights sleep
~ When the only time you sit during the day is to go to the bathroom
~ When all your words end with "y" hinney, potty, tummy...
~ When you yell at the top of your lungs, "Stop your screaming"
~ When you seek solitude in a shower
~ When you consider dressed up wearing dangling earrings and colored chap stick
~ When the only time you can get phone calls done is between the hours of 1-3pm (and of course all the businesses are at lunch that time)
~ When all your pants have snot smears from the knee down
~ When you smell a brown streak to make sure it is just dirt and not something else
~ When you are more prepared for an outing to the post office than a boy scout for a camp out
~When you have a first aid kit that would impress an EMT
~ When you carry a purse with one or two personal items and the rest is full of snacks and toys
~ When your little one goes potty on the toilet you do a jig

I am sure that there are plenty more that you can think of... that is all my mind can think of as I am baking banana muffins and picking up the kitchen.
Have a great day moms... and everyone else too! ;-)
