I was standing in my kitchen a few weeks ago chatting it up with a friend that has a son just about the same age as Kelsey, as we made our cups of tea we were laughing about the funny things our kids have been doing lately. Then she made a comment “you know you’re a mom when…” and I started dying laughing. So I hope you enjoy this post, I figured most moms would know where I am coming from 🙂
You know you’re a mama when…
You have to remove toys from the bath tub just to take a shower
If taking a long hot shower in peace and quiet is rare… VERY rare
Boogers and puke don’t really effect you any more
“Clean up! Clean up! everybody everywhere” becomes a part of your everyday vocabulary
Bags under your eyes are the everyday normal
You can change a diaper with your eyes closed
You have memorized every cartoon theme song under the sun
You shop for your kids more than yourself because its easier than trying on clothes
It takes more than 1 trip to the car to run a simple errand
Your breath magically turns into Lysol and a simple puff of your breath will clean anything off
All of the sudden your laundry triples thanks to burp clothes, diaper blowouts, grass stains… the list goes on
You don’t wear nice clothes often knowing that when you do the little ones will spill something on you
A simple little smile or giggle can turn a bad attitude around
You get up in the middle of the night to take care of a crying child and run into 4 toys on your way there
When wearing clothes that have spit up or other baby issued stains on your shoulder is no biggie
When you have become a taxi driver
When you have trouble finishing a thought or sentence because you’re distracted or just struck with MOM BRAIN!
As we all know the list could go on and on
What are some of your favorite “you know your a mama when…”?
It is a joy and an honor to be a mama and all these things listed above make me smile whether good or bad.
It’s good to be a mama 🙂
