You Know You're a Mom When...

1. Your conversations with your husband revolve around, on a regular basis, your child's latest bowel movement.

2. You measure the length of your workouts not by minutes, but by which show was on PBS when you started.

3. At any given moment of the day you burst into hearty renditions of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," "Pop Goes the Weasel," and the theme song from "The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That."


4. You find yourself on your hands and knees, scrubbing colored pencil off the tiles on your bathroom floor.

5. The Magic Eraser becomes your best friend.

6. You take a bath with squirt toys and little boats.

7. You can smell a poopy diaper from a mile away.

8. You find cheerios, goldfish crackers, and fruit snacks in every crack and cranny of your house and car.

9. Drool no longer fazes you.

10. You know how it feels to have your heart outside your body.

11. And you love every minute of it.

You have an audience when you use the bathroom.

If you try to shut the door and have some privacy while you go potty you have a wailing child outside the door or a child putting their figers or pushing a toy through the crack under the door.

You are NEVER alone. And if by some miracle you are you feel a little sad when you don't have a small child following you everywhere!

LOL, yes! Amen.
