You Know You're a Mom When...

...Your feet stick to the kitchen floor and you don't care.

...the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in a room together and not let them out until someone's bleeding.

...You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.

...You spend an entire week wearing sweats.

...Your idea of a good day is making it through without a child leaking bodily fluids on you.

...Popsicles become a food staple.

...Your favorite television show is a cartoon.

...Peanut butter and jelly is eaten at least in one meal a day.

...You're willing to kiss your child's boo-boo, regardless of what body part it happens to be on.

...Your baby's pacifier falls on the floor and you give it back to her after you suck the dirt off of it because you're too busy to wash it off.

...You value sleep above all else.

...Your kids make jokes about farting, burping, pooping, etc., and you think it's funny.

...You're so desperate for adult conversation that you spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs up on YOU!

...Spit is your number one cleaning agent.

...You're up each night until 10 PM vacuuming, dusting, wiping, washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping, cooking, driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping picking up, changing sheets, changing diapers, bathing, helping with homework, paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding clothes, putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing, chasing, buckling, feeding (them, not you), PLUS swinging, playing baseball, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling dolls, rollerblading, basketball, football, catch, bubbles, sprinklers, slides, nature walks, coloring, crafts, jumping rope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing, gardening, painting, and walking the dog.

...You get up at 5:30 AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or go to the bathroom, yet you still managed to gain 10 pounds.

...In your bathroom there is toothpaste on the light fixtures, water all over the floor, a dog drinking out of the toilet and body hair forming a union to protest unsafe working conditions.

...You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.

...The closest you get to gourmet cooking is making Rice Krispie bars

...You know the best way to scrape dried Cheerios off the floor.

...You don't own a single store-bought Christmas tree ornament

...You share the storage closet with a miniature broom and vacuum cleaner.

...You always buying the big pack of batteries-- but you can never find one when you need one.
