You Know You're a Mama When....

#1  The day you teach your 2 year old how to blow his nose, you feel like you've hit the lottery.

#2  You yearn for the day your baby sleeps through the night, then, when they finally do, you're up every few hours checking on them to makes sure they're ok.

#3  You never thought you would clap and cheer over a toilet full of poo, as you do when potty training.

#4  If you happen to lay on the floor, you suddenly open yourself up to being a jungle gym and a horse.

#5  Your once sensitive gag reflex disappears.  See #3.

#6  At one time you could sleep through a thunder storm and sirens, and now the pitter patter of tiny feet coming down the hall wake you.

#7  You've traded your purse with an arsenal of make-up and hair accessories,  for a diaper bag with an arsenal of diapers, wipes, sanitizer, binkis and toys.

#8  There is no need for a tv, because your kids are enough entertainment.

#9  Your heart swells when your baby wakes up from his nap, and beams at you with his sleepy-eyed smile, rosy cheeks and messed up hair.

#10  You say things like:  "No head-butting at the dinner table," "Stop kicking your brother in the head," and, "If you throw one more thing in the toilet...."

#11  You clean all day, but your house is still trashed.

#12  There is no better smell in this universe, than the top of your baby's head.

#13 You finally realize how much your own mom loves you.


  1. I nodded my head with EVERY one of these, and teared up with #13. I remember after having my first child, I would look out at people and think, "Every one of these people has a mother. Every single one of these people was a little baby just like mine, held and loved just like mine." It really puts things into perspective. And it's so true, you just don't know how your mom loves you until you feel that love toward someone else. It's awe-inspiring and humbling.

  2. Awww! That was great! And I love the name of your blog, btw :)

  3. HAHA I like #4...12 and 13 r good too...they're all good!
