You know you’re a mom when… (part 2)

You know you’re a mom when… (part 2)

  1. You know all of the late night infomercials from all those sleepless nights.
  2. Your voice has permanently become 10 octaves higher from talking all that baby talk.
  3. You realize at dinner time that you never ate lunch or breakfast, but the baby had balanced meals all day.
  4. You used to see infomercials for Girls Gone Wild and think guys were too easily amused by them. Now you see those commercials and think, “If she ever does that, I’ll kill her….”
  5. You rhyme words together, not just with baby, but in social situations. “Yes, I’ll have a Miller Genuine Drafty-wafty”….
  6. You spend your birthday money on baby clothes and a Belle costume.
  7. You find yourself talking to other people using the same tone you use with your toddler. “Now I told you to sign on the dotted line, mmmmm kay?”
  8. You base your choice of restaurant as to whether it is noisy enough and crowded enough for others to not notice your baby screaming, making a huge mess on the floor and whether they have clean high chairs.
  9. You find that you cannot watch the news or read the paper without breaking out into hives and or having a nervous breakdown seeing all the horrible things that can possibly happen to your child.
  10. From Sarah: You know you are a mother when your secret fantasy involves being alone in complete silence.
  11. From Samantha: You know you’re a mom when you start referring to your husband as¬† daddy instead of honey or baby.
  12. From MCMilker: You have Mommy nails – no polish, not even a manicure!
  13. From TiggerPrr: You know you’re a mom when Because I said so! becomes a viable reason.

    Sometimes I wonder if “moms” are even reffered to as “people” anymore? LOL I think we are just mom’s and nothing else!

    “Because I said so…” That’s a tool in every parent’s arsenal ;)

    I TOTALLY have “Mommy Nails”!! This is a great list – I can relate to all of them :-)

    Okay, I don’t have any children yet, but some of these resemble the way I act with my puppy-dog, does that count? :0)

    Happy TT Mommy!

    Iím up!

    I feel you!
    My daughter is five, I still do those things.

    I’m so glad I only have animal babies. No need to worry they’ll end up on Girls Gone Wild.

    Number 4 makes me so glad I don’t have a daughter.

    I do have a hard time watching the news and I’ve lost my tolerance for stupid parents – you know the ones…the ones that are shown on the news.

  14. Karen W December 21, 2006 at 9:01 am #

    #9 – I can’t stand to watch those 911 shows. They give me something new to worry about! Merry Christmas!!

  15. Milehimama December 21, 2006 at 8:42 am #

    I always turn off those Girls Gone Wild videos, in case the sight of all those chests makes the baby hungry!
    You know you’re a mom when you calmly handle vomit, tears, and diarrhea at the same time, but an empty toilet paper roll sends you over the edge.

    And you forgot one…

    when you have no issue sniffing a butt to check for a poopy diaper!

    Happy Thursday!

  17. Sanni December 21, 2006 at 8:23 am #

    LOL – I find myself in nearly every topic you mentioned =)

    Merry Christmas to you and yours,
    P.S.: Please visit my TT #6 – Thanks a lot!

  18. ali December 21, 2006 at 8:19 am #

    i said that i’d never refer to my husband as “daddy” and i totally do it all the time….

  19. Terri December 21, 2006 at 8:00 am #

    I rememember all of these well…but my kids are now grown and I find myself replaying them with grandchildren. Great TT.
    Mine’s up.

    My son has taught me to say, “Let’s go down stair-stairs.”

    I can really relate to number 10. My teens have asked me before what my favorite musis is. I tell them: the sound of the kitchen clock ticking. You can’t hear that clock tick unless the house is silent. Too bad I’m usually sleeping then!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
