You Know You’re A Mom When….


Along with motherhood comes an entirely new set of norms that prior to motherhood was, well, not so normal ; 0

I know y’all know what I mean.

So, here’s my list…give us some laughs and add yours to the list!


  • Getting dressed for the day you now look at your closet and think “what can I wear that will hide the fact that I am not wearing a bra?”
  • You now take the longest route home to preserve nap time
  • You no longer need a grocery cart at the store, thank you stroller manufacturers for those handy baskets
  • Every activity becomes a song
  • You can switch between baby voice and normal-human-adult-voice without thinking
  • Bodily functions are now celebrated (“nice burp”)
  • You are never more than one arm’s length away from a burp cloth
  • The path of least resistance sounds more and more like a good idea
  • You know that “Nesting” isn’t just what birds do
  • You turn momma bear on the insect that trespassed into the nursery
  • A ‘wet kiss’ isn’t a bad thing
  • Getting a shower in for the day has to be ranked for priority on the Things To Do list

Okay moms, let’s hear yours!!

    LOL! Those are funny and oh-so-true! Ok, here’s one: It is a normal thing to have only one leg shaved at any given time. 😉

    When: You don’t mind talking about baby bowel movements and you willingly wipe up snot.

    So true! I think our babies are just a few weeks apart. one comment that might often be heard, usually made to a husband, close friend, or family member, is: “The only thing I got done during his nap was . . . . .”

    …when NOTHING grosses you out. You can discuss anything at anytime (even during a meal).
