You know you're a mom

Yes, I know I'm a mom and my kids definitely don't let me forget it. But I've made a few observations over the last few days and collected a few funnies (or what I think is funny) that I've picked up during motherhood.  Hope you enjoy them as much as me...and yes, I laugh at my own jokes.

So being a mom means...

-you can wipe the nose of one child and while changing the diaper of the other at the same time.

-you have extendable arms that allow you to reach behind you in the car while driving to put a pacy in, wipe a nose, give someone a drink, or threaten a child with finger pointing & "I'll pull this car over" if she yells mommy at the top of her lungs one more time.

-you view consignment sales as guerilla warfare and have a strategy before you shop.  And yes, this also means you are willing to throw some elbows, so that your precious angel can have that certain dress that she'll wear maybe twice, but can't live without. I did this one yesterday. ;)

-you may at anytime of the day have spit-up, throw-up, pee, poop, or any other various excretion on your shirt...and you don't even notice or care.

-your kids have the latest fashions and you have a hole in your sock and mismatched house shoes on.  And if you are wondering, yes, that is my current condition while writing this.

-you never get a warm meal because either one is needing to go to the potty or the other needs to nurse.

-your heart walks around outside of your body.

Had to end on a positive, mainly since no matter all the other stuff, it's still the best job in the world!

I am completely with you on all of those! Lost the consignment store one! A LOT! We have one here that does a sale one time a year where you shove all red line merchandise into a bag and then the bag, no matter how much is inside, is $10. IT IS ON! LOL No really, people get mean, the store is packed, there is a line over an hour BEFORE the doors open, and it takes at least 30 minutes just to check out and leave! And, still I find myself there every year! LOL This past year, I was very pregnant and it was 100,000 degrees in there. I was still crawling around people and dragging two very full bags of clothes around! LOL What we will do for our kids! :o)
