You know you're a mom when.....

With the reflecting and remembering we've been doing lately I've been thinking about years past.  It's amazing how much your life changes in just a short amount of time.  The changes I see in Munchkie are astounding, but how she's changed my life is really even more incredible.  And so I have been thinking, man I am really a mom now.  A real, wear jeans that don't fit and go out without makeup kind of mom.  It make me think about all of the other things in my life that have changed.  Oh how things change.....

So, these are things that I've noticed lately that make me kind of crack up thinking about the changes in my life.

You know you're a mom when.....
  • You step into the shower and aren't even phased by the 3 ducks and a dolphin, mindlessly pushing them aside with your feet and continuing your shower.
  • You almost consider your new bathroom accessory matching, the Elmo on the potty seat kind of matches the red rugs and towels.....
  • You find yourself saying "yummies" in public.  When your child isn't with you.
  • You have to spell out loud half of your conversation.
  • You hear Elmo's voice every time you trip over something. 
  • Not having milk in the fridge literally is the end of the world.
  • You have to sing the cleanup song whenever something is on the ground.
  • When you go grocery shopping, you hesitate with each item in your hand and think "how big of a mess can this possibly make?"  and then put the item back if the cleanup makes you cringe.
  • You can't get into some of your cabinets because the child proof lock is too confusing.
  • Going out to eat is way more of a hassle than actually cooking the food at home.
  • You can fall asleep anywhere, but don't know the last time you slept through the night without waking to some kind of noise.
  • The camera is sitting out at all times, ready for action.
  • There are designated hours of the day that you are trapped in your house, they are called naptime, and bedtime.
  • Your social life is going to Target, and you're on a first name basis with the Starbucks girl.

  • You walk away from your computer for a minute and whatever you are doing gets altered slightly, because buttons are just too fun to not push.
  • The words "No you have already brushed your teeth enough times today, you do not need to brush them again" come out of your mouth.
  • You have to teach about sharing, sharing toys with other kids, or not sharing food with the dogs.
  • There are 23 episodes of Sesame Street on your DVR.  And you know what each one is about.
  • You don't need an alarm clock because about the same time each day you hear "Mooooommmmmmyyyyyyy" coming from the other room.
There are a lot more, but these are the ones I can think of now.
