Eleven signs that you're a mom

July 5, 2011
1. You use spit to clean up your kids, and the windows.

2. You're a regular on home.com, because you're desperate for a house to come on the market in Teletubbieland. You really want to live there, because of the peace and quiet.

3. You have thighs of steel, because you always pee hanging above the toilet, since the toilet seat is always wet with kid's wee.

4. You talk about yourself in the third person, and share way too much information: 'Mommy has to take a shit'.

5. You feel you have a right to a handicapped parking spot. After all, you carry a buggy, a baby and three fighting toddlers.

6. Holidays mean more work, instead of R and R.

7. You're leafing through the Yellow Pages, looking for this contracter called Bob the Builder, to build an annex to your house. Because you've heard such good things about him!

8. You wear Birkenstocks and skirts with elastic waistbands: anything for a bit of comfort.

9. You jump whenever you hear 'Mommyyyyy!', even if it's not your kid.

10. When you hear an ambulance your heart starts racing.

11. You can pee with three people looking on, while having a deep conversation about the Tower of Pisa made from toilet roles.

How do you know, you're a mom?!

  3. LMAO!!! I love it! Living in a house with so many boys, I am particularly fond of #3 - although my thighs are of jello despite all the hovering!

    Here's a few more I found and totally identify with:
    You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

    You only have time to shave one leg at a time.

    Your feet stick to the kitchen floor, and you don't care.

    You can remove chewing gum from just about anything.

    You spend an entire week wearing sweats.

    ***You wonder why it was you ever feared being alone.

    You can talk on the phone, pack a lunch & breast feed all once.

    What a funny start to a Tuesday morning =)

  4. Spilled Milkshake, I totally hear you! Especially the sticky kitchen floor. But like I always tell my husband: it's a great way to catch burglars!
