My family spent the day hanging out by the pool of a shamsy-fancy hotel, since the hubs is out of town, and its 114 outside. Yes, that is me complaining about Arizona’s heat, yet again. This CALI girl needs the water in here life, so why not hit up a fake beach at a hotel? Totally, the same, at least I can keep telling myself that.
My sister was sharing with me how she read this blog post about a “you know you’re 30 when…” and how she laughed real hard about it. After I got home from the pool, I was bathing Hanksters and he pooped in the tub. (insert emoticon of pile of poop+ bathtub + gun pointing at it).
Then I thought myself… you know you’re a mom when you pick up poop with your bare hands.
Which inspired this list:
You know you’re a mom when: you lick your hands, and hope its chocolate. *did that last week. It was chocolate.
You know you’re a mom when: you haven’t used the restroom alone in as long as you can remember. *the door is always open, and either I’m keeping an eye on the kids, or they won’t leave me alone.
You know you’re a mom when: you say 3 different names, to get the right one.
You know you’re a mom when: you sneak chocolate chips behind the fridge door, so that you don’t have to share with the kids. *I do this ALL THE TIME.
You know you’re a mom when: you are never seen in white clothing.
You know you’re a mom when: you haven’t had a hot meal in, well, as long as your kid has been on solids.
You know you’re a mom when: poop in the bath tub doesn’t make you scream.
You know you’re a mom when: you can recite all the characters from doc mc stuffins and are okay with it.
You know you’re a mom when: the clean up song becomes as cool to you as Justin B is to teen girls (and boys).
You know you’re a mom when: you get 4 hrs of uninterrupted sleep and your tell someone “I slept great last night.”
You know you’re a mom when: you drink wine out of a sippy cup, because that’s what is clean in the kitchen. * I may or may not be doing this right now.
You know you’re a mom when: you can get everyone out the door, dressed and ready to go for the day in under 5 minutes. But…You forget your wallet in the diaper bag the one day you decide to bring your purse. #fail
You know you’re a mom when you eat your kids gummy vitamins and think, “Good enough for them, good enough for me.”
Its hard work being a mom, but so rewarding. So, if you are not a mama, yet, don’t be scared by this list. Take it as an encouragement as to how awesome you are going to be, once you are a mom. Nothing seems to really shock me anymore. I just roll with the punches. We can basically conquer the world in a day, right Pinky?
