You Know You're A Mother When...

Mamakat's Prompt: You know you're a mother when...

You go days without ever speaking a complete sentence.

Your wardrobe consists of items of clothing that can survive spills, spit, and other spewage.

Your makeup regime takes less than a minute, and may or may not be limited to one eye.

If you call yourself "Mommy" in conversation because you can't remember your first name.

You can identify the different cries your child makes and know when they are just "foolin'".

Constant interruptions have caused such massive derailment of your trains of thought that you worry that you might have dementia.

No one can talk to you without enduring your random, right-in-the-middle-of-sentences, comments to your child. Even when your child is not there.

The three-second-rule becomes the five-second-rule if you're all out of whatever just fell on the floor.

You get used to peeing with the bathroom door open. (Kids are like cats. The second they notice a closed door, they want to be on the other side of it.)

It's ten o'clock on a Saturday night, and you're already asleep.

You don't even care if there is no tissue to wipe a runny nose--you just use your hand.

When you wait for over an hour in a line at the mall for this priceless photo, and your husband gives you grief because it cracks you up every time you look at it:



  1. Love the photo! Yes, sometimes a hand is needed to wipe a nose!

  2. That photo is awesome! And your sense of humor regarding it true-Momness!

    Visiting from Mama Kat's :)

  3. And you know what creeps me out about that pic?? It's the santa with that maniacal grin....

  4. Lol! That is hilarious (and priceless!). That bathroom door is so true! What is about "going potty" that makes the kids sooo needy? Lol!

  5. You're still up at 10 o'clock?!?!?

  6. I hate to admit that I have used my hand.

  7. Tell your Husband to shove it! Sometimes the ridiculous pictures of our children are all we have to make it through the day! If you can't laugh at them to their faces and not look like a horrible parent, we gotta have something, right???

  8. Things don't change over the generations, I remember all of these cues.


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
