You Know You"re A Mom When

You Know You're a Mother When ...

You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

You have time to shave only one leg at a time.

You hide in the bathroom to be alone.

Your kid throws-up and you catch it.

Someone else's kid throws up at a party. You keep eating.

As you cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons; your child chews his toast into the shape of a gun.

You hope ketchup is a vegetable, since it's the only one your child eats.

You find yourself cutting your husband's sandwiches into cute shapes.

You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when you say, "NOT in your good clothes!"

You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.

You donate to charities in the hope that your child won't get that disease.

You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.

You use your own saliva to clean your child's face.

You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything".

First of all - GET OUT OF MY HEAD! Seriously though...I jumped off the couch when I read the bathroom. I sometimes sit on the floor of the bathroom and read or just sit and breathe. And "I'm not sure I'm cut out for this" has been a daily mantra which is always shattered when she smiles. And I just wiped my daughter face with my spit the other day and yelled, "I jjust became my Mother" and my husband fell over laughing/ This was genius, Lorrie. You rock!
