~~You Know You're A Mom When...~~

You know you're a mom when...

*you can juggle feeding a baby, fixing cereal and dressing someone throwing a tantrum for school and do all three perfectly without breaking a sweat

*you can clean up blood, poo and vomit without flinching

*you start saying things like "do it or else" or "so help me" or "wait til your dad gets home"

*you find yourself laughing out loud at something cute that your kids did yesterday and don't care who notices

*you only go to the grocery store at midnight to keep from buying tons of "I want this" stuff

*going to bed early becomes a privilege instead of a punishment

*you wake up with more people in your bed than you went to sleep with

*you can change a diaper and make a bottle in your sleep

*your front yard looks like a yard sale is currently taking place

*every book you read has pictures in it

*in your purse, you have more diapers, snacks and wipes than makeup or money

*you know the names of every child in the neighborhood, but none of their parents

*getting ready for the day consists of putting on clothes that don't have anyone else's bodily fluids or leftover food on them and brushing your hair, if you have an extra minute it might include a spit bath or lighting fast shower

*your main food groups are corn dogs, mac'and cheese, potato chips, jello pudding, string cheese and chocolate milk

*you scope out where the bathroom is in every place that you ever visit

*you sing nursery rhymes and Disney Channel songs and know all the words

*you have no idea what is currently happening on your favorite television programs, but know all of the Hannah Montana and iCarly plots by heart

*your 4 year old is singing the theme song to Zac & Cody and you know to correct her when she gets a word wrong

*you are having the worst day ever and the hug from tiny little arms will brighten it up!

Or you hum to yourself and find that you're humming the theme to Wonderpets.

So very true!!!

Or, you start telling the kids to go outside and play with their kickety-kickball or their jumpity-jump rope or their racety-race car.

I would rather puke in tinfoil and eat it than watch Wow,Wow Wubbzy!
