    You know you are a mommy when....you put on a shirt with only 3 stains and consider that "lookin' good" for the day!!!

    You can hold a conversation with a friend while pointing one eye in each direction to keep track of where your toddlers are.

    ... you go to give your DH a bite of something you are eating and your mouth opens as you you spoon it into his!

    when you are feeding them and a little piece of food is hanging off their lip and you take it and stick it in your mouth (God I hope I am not the only mom in the whole world who does this!!! :unsure: )

    when you have no tissue to wipe your little sweeties nose so you use your own shirt or you use your finger and wipe it on your pants (boy am I embarrasing myself or what???)

    when you leave the house and the kids look emaculate and you had no time to do your hair, iron your clothes or put on make-up!

    cleaning poop off the tub doesn't even phase you....then the next day it hits you what you actually did!



    and yes, I eat my kids "leftovers", too! :)

    ...you think of something that you want to post on TS. But before you can type it out you chase two toddlers around, feed bath and put three kiddos to bed and realize you've completely forgotten what it was that you wanted to post.

    Someone please help me find my short term memory....

    You get up early to shower.....just to make sure you get one.

    ... when you catch your kid's vomit at dinner in a restraurant in your hand becuause there's nothing else to catch it with.


    ... when you can keep eating as you watch another mom catch her kid's vomit in her hand...

    (one of my kids had crazy reflux and w/that a very sensitive gag reflex!!)

    ...I just posted this on another thread so I guess it's also OK to admit it here. You know you're a mother when you learn to live with used band aid collections and hold out your hand when your child says "here mommy, boogers".

    ...you can cook dinner, vacuum, sweep, and switch a load of clothes into the dryer with a toddler (or two) hanging on your leg.
     
  19. .....when you know the difference between a real cry and "oh they are doing it for attention"....

    when you have run into a mc donalds begging and pushing everyone out of the way to get your 2 year old to the bathroom just in time....

    when you feel your bed is empty without the whole family in it...

    when your hubby calls and asks how all his 'girls' are doing....

    :wub: love this thread

    I so agree with double-or-nothin, I'm guilty of doing all those things to so No it's not just you. I wipe the kids nose with my sleeve so much by the time I go to bed my sleeve is all hard and crusted. I eat the same things the girls eat except I have to spoon mine off my pants, arm or their clothes.

    I've done this in a vehicle. Not a single drop on her pretty red Christmas coat or her Grandma's brand new vehicle. Threw it on the ground and caught the second round too!


    ....when you have to count to ten to keep from grabbing the Walgreens pharmacy girl by the shirt and dragging her across the counter for stupidly asking "do they need the medicine?" when my 3 week old twins thrush medication was not available. Did she have any clue how hormonal and sleep deprived I was?


    ....when you have to utter the words "Yes I will see what's in your poo-poo crack for you."

    All I can say is this:

    Wonder Pets, Wonder pets are on our way
    To help the little mousie and save the day
    were not to big and were not too tough
    but when we work together we got the right stuff!
    Go Wonderpets, YAY!!!


    (And no, its not on right now!!)

    Oh, and you can recite this is your sleep too if asked.

    Great thread!!

    OMG!!!!! My DH asked me what I was humming last night and I didn't even realize it was the WONDER [email protected]! :eek:

    When DH asks when he gets home "Who did the Wonder Pets save today?" and I know the answer everday!!!! :blink:

    Can you tell we have a major Wonder Pets addiction going on here lately. Save me from Noggin!!!! I didn't even know these channels exsisted before the boys. Now I know them by heart. Sad very, very sad. Oh well, we all do crazy things to keep the kiddos happy. :p

    When you reach out to wipe off someone else's kid's nose without even thinking!! :fool: It's the pack phenomenon.... when you have three of your own lined up for tissue time, what's another kid?

    ok, I have another one to add.....

    when you hear a kid crying & automatically reach to BF and then realize it's not your kid.....


    maybe that one's a little more sleep-deprived induced! (No it wasn't me, but it was my kid that someone else almost BF....till she saw the look on my face! :eek: ) .... we're close, so we tease her about it all the time.)

    Gotta love Noggin! My girls LOVE the Wonder Pets (or Pet Pet as they call them). Their favorite show is Jack's Big Music Show. Every day at 1:00, they know it's time for Jack!

    Oh, I just thought of another one...You know you're a mommy when you don't have a clue what songs are popular now but you can sing along with every Elmo song since that's all you can listen to in the car.

    ....When your idea of "ME-TIME" is having a shower alone. A luxurious shower is getting to shave your legs.

    ....When you buy more grocery items for your kids than you do you and your husband. (I've been guilty of this....the kids are just starting to eat what we eat, so I'm learning!!)
