You Know You’re A Mom When….

The last few days, I’ve encountered some moments where I have realized, Oh yes, I am most definitely a mom. Not that I didn’t already know that. I have three kids… Anyway, here they are for your enjoyment….

– When you are at the store and your youngest son is talking (loudly) about his “wee-wee” and how he likes to play with his wee-wee and how his wee-wee is hiding. And you – as mom – have to explain to the onlookers that “wee-wee” is his word for “car.”

– When you find yourself, in the middle of the night, trying to wrap your toddler tightly in blankets instead of waking him to put a new diaper on, because his new trick is taking his diaper off when he goes to sleep…. and soaking everything in a five-foot radius.

– When you go to brush your hair at night and wonder “What’s that?” in your hair-line, and realize it’s your son’s toe nail clippings.

– When you are at work and it’s halfway through the day before someone points out you have something wiped midway across your thigh and your realize it’s the toothpaste smudge of one of your children.

– When your washing machine is broken for weeks on end and you explain the concept of the “sniff-test” to your kids.


What else would you add to the list? Oh and Dads… you aren’t left out here. You can play too.

    Running around all day to work and run errands, people smile at you only to find out that you forgot that your youngest daughter planted a sticky gem on your forehead before heading to school :-)))

    My baby was 2 months old and I had just for done eating a really yummie breakfast sandwich before getting up and getting busy. About 20 minutes later I get excited when I see some leftover cheese on my forearm and lick it off. It had a really bitter taste though. about 10 minutes later I see a bunch more of the “cheese” substance on my other forearm and realize it was poop from the babies blow out earlier. 😦 my first mortifying mommy moment.

    When talking about someone else’s poop seems like a normal topic of conversation 🙂
