You Know You're a Mom...

In honor of Mother's Day, here is a list of a few ways you might know you are a mom.

When you finally blow-dry your hair for the first time in who-knows- when, all of your friends ask if you got a hair cut.

When you tell the hair stylist who cuts your hair every six months that you part your hair in the middle, (where you have been parting it since college), she exclaims, "Did you know the middle part is coming back in style?"

Even though you used to go out for the night at 9:00, when you are driving a baby around at 1:00 in the morning, you are completely shocked at the amount of people who are not only out in the middle of the night but dressed in something other than pajamas as well.

You can put in a DVD, pass out snacks, and retrieve dropped toys - all while driving.

During award season, you don't recognize most of the actors, you've never heard any of the songs, and you have seen 1 1/2 of the movies ( you feel asleep in one because you tried to watch it after the kids went to bed)

You are always the best dressed at church because it's your only opportunity to wear your nice clothes and heels.

Your best dressed for church also includes a little spit up.

When you are driving in your car by yourself, it takes you five minutes before you realize you are singing along to Old McDonald on the radio

You look forward to the dentist; it's nice to lay back and not have to talk.

Breakfast is eaten standing up.

You love when Daddy (or grandpa or uncle) is around so you don't have to do the roughhousing.

You know the tune to this: Backpack, backpack. Backpack, backpack.

You write a list about being a mom for a Mother's day, and finally get it finished a few days late.

You start a blog about the craziness of being of mom, and can't seem to keep up because being a mom is just too crazy.

You consider Mother's Day a day off.

Happy Mothers Day!


  1. glad you are back! I love this post and you always have me cracking up. Everything you have to say about Motherhood is so true and I can totally relate! I had to read the down the drain post outloud to my husband. Gotta love it!
