You know you're a mom when...


...you curse places that don't have automatic doors

...you have children's songs stuck in your head

...instead of spending hours shopping for yourself you spend hours looking at things for your child

........ When your new perfume is ode de baby spit up.
......... When a business doesn't have a changing table and you have words with management.
......... When the highlight if a shopping trip is realizing the place you're at has a nursing room

...when you hear a baby cry (who isn't your own) and automatically want to help.

...when getting at least 5 hours of sleep seems like a fantasy.

...when you can tell the difference between an "I'm hungry," "I'm tired," "I pooped," or "I've had enough" cry.

your exercise regime consists of vacuuming the car while wearing baby; who needs a gym.

...grocery shop for the week in under a half an hour

When you don't care that you've been pooped on because you are holding your baby after a crappy day at work!

When you want to cry one min because you're so sleep deprived and your baby smiles a gummy smile at you and it instantly changes everything.

When the boppy the baby and the boob are all at the dinner table together. Hey if he's hungry at dinner time, we all eat

...when almost all of your spare change is spent on caffeinated beverages
...when you carry a spare diaper, travel pack of wipes, and at least one other random baby item in your purse at all times.
...when going anywhere alone, even if it is someplace like the doctor's office, feels like a spa day.
...when you have whittled your morning "get ready" routine down to ten minutes or less
...when a minivan suddenly doesn't sound so awful anymore
...when you decide on whether or not to have a glass of wine based on when the baby last had the boob!

Jill, that gummy smile is another reason I am in no rush for Sean to get teeth!

For BF moms:

...when you're in no rush for your child to get teeth because you're afraid of being bitten while nursing.

...when you delay starting solids partly for your baby's health but also because you want just 2 more months of the sweet smelling BM poops before getting stinky solids diapers to change.

...when you have cartoons on even though you are the only one in the house.

... when you pick your child up and smell his/her butt like a dog to see if (s)he needs a diaper change and you don't even think twice about it.

... when you are out and you hear a baby cry you instantly perk up and start to look around for your own child (who is at home).

When going to bathroom alone becomes a luxury you rarely can afford
When you spend more time in the baby/children section than at the ladies section of department's stores
When you plan outings around your child/children's eating and nap times

When you have at least one noonie & hair bow in your purse at all time
You can completely dress your entire family from the contents in the back of your suv
The one Saturday morning you can sleep late your child has a soccer game at 8:30 45 minutes across town
You still cry singing your kids lullabies, no matter their age
You can hear a noonie fall out of a mouth across the house
