You know you’re a mom when… (part 1)

You know you’re a mom when…

  1. You can tell your baby’s pooping from 20 feet away.
  2. You are in a different area of the house while your husband is playing with baby… you hear baby do that “certain” laugh, and know (without having to go and check!) that she’s throwing something you need behind the couch from where you’ll never be able to retrieve it.
  3. Your baby smells like lavender and chamomile, dressed in the most adorable new line from Gymboree, but you have no idea when the last time you took a shower when you got to wash your hair, clean your body and shave all in the same shower!!!
  4. Your “purse” has more snacks and toys than lipstick and cash.
  5. Your cell phone has a pediatrician on speed dial.
  6. A quiet house alerts you that something is wrong.
  7. After you finally get your child to sleep through the night, you miss him!
  8. You reach into your purse for your wallet and pull out a sippy cup!
  9. You’ll endure the sound of Elmo’s voice for years because you know it makes your child happy.
  10. You go out to have time for yourself and spend the time talking about the kids.
  11. You no longer gag at the thought of sucking boogers out of another human being’s stuffy little nose.
  12. Your idea of a good night life is sleep.
  13. You find yourself swaying/rocking even when you aren’t holding the baby.

  1. I just had to come check out part 1 after reading part 2. Thank goodness we are not alone! :) And, #13 is a constant for me…I think it soothes me!

  2. Cute 13! The wondering about the quiet house thing is too familiar. My sister has an almost 3 year old and a 16 month old. When they get off to themselves and get quiet…WATCH OUT!!
    Mine are up here!
