You know you are the mom of a little one when.....

One of these ....



....ends up on the backside of your panties and you notice it after you remove them from the dryer.

Yes, it's a Thomas Tank Engine sticker that would have been gracing my well endowed behind if I did not happen to see it....lovely!

Tell me how you know when you are the mom of a little one?

Ahhhh...welcome to my life!

The backseat of my car has more 'petrified french fries' from McDonalds than I can count on the floor and in other areas.

OK...you asked:

The first time I had one of these "I'm a mom" realization moments was while dropping T off at daycare when she was about 10 mo old. Her nose was running rivers of snot, and there wasn't a tissue in sight. Apparently, I wiped it on my shirt. I didn't even realize that I had done it until I was driving away, and felt something cold and wet under my boob. Yuck!

I have two 3 yrs. old twins. Around the time they were about 18-month-ish old (we were just a few months back from China and I was just getting back into my full-time job), I was giving a very big "worked on it a long time" presentation to senior staff. I looked good, I felt good, I was organized, the world was right, and in middle of presentation, I reached into my briefcase sitting up on the conference table for an extra pen. Well, I spilled the briefcase over and out spilled an entire bowl of goldfish all over the table. The golfish "swam" all the down the long table to the other side.

LOL..

Love it! I regularly find stickers in my, uh, busty area. Of course I find them AFTER I've been out and about in full public view. I think the kids hit me so many times in the boobs with their elbows, knees, whatever, that I don't even feel the subtle sticker application any more.

I knew I was the Grandma of two little people again when I replaced my favorite CD's in the console holder of my car with a big container of wipes...when my grocery list contains items only they eat..when I added a toy basket to my family room decor...
when I added two car seats to the garage storage area...when I spend my free time making hair bows to match every outfit they own....when I started my Christmas shopping at Toys R Us...when bubble bath became a staple...when the latest book I read featured a Cat in a Hat...when my husband and I go to bed and there is a tiny little body between us....ain't life grand!!!!

You have a princess sticker on your back and your boss pulls it off before you head into a meeting:)

You try to find a pen in your purse and pull out a crayon...and you use it!

Oh this one is so easy. My cute little purse was big enough to hold my keys, cell and lipstick. Now my huge bag holds extra wipes, tissues, pull-ups, snacks, a toy and a sippy cup at any given moment.
I used to wear suits and style my hair, wear fancy shoes and makeup to go to work. Now I am lucky if I get out of my PJ's, the hair is pulled up in a pony tail, my only makeup is whatever Kerri spilled on me, and shoes are slippers indoors or running sneakers outdoors to keep up with her. My wardrobe consists of jeans and t shirts or sweats.
A desired evening with my spouse included fine dining in a restaurant, a movie, or romantic evenings at home. Now a desired evening with my spouse would include sleeping in our own bed together without the little one in the middle, and instead of romance, we would settle for sleep! Oh, and the dinner and the movie? That has changed to anything G rated that Kerri likes to watch and microwave popcorn.
By the way, I knew I was the Mom of a little one the moment they placed her in my arms and I had no idea what to do next. Especially after she puked all over and then had an exploding green diaper. You KNOW you are a Mom of a little one when you can deal with puke and poop and not even be fazed anymnore!

I regularly find stickers on me in places that my clients would just laugh at. You get the picture. ;)

I knew I was a mom when I got excited at Erin's first poopy diaper. There I was sitting in the lobby of the White Swan waiting for Susan & Art to come downstairs with Julianna & David. I smelled "something" & just happened to check Erin's diaper. And, yup, there it was. My girl had her first messy diaper. You know me well so you know how excited I was. Sick, huh?

Well I was told recently I am a hard core Mom...I came home from work & was having a yummy weight watchers chocolate ice cream & asking my husband about the consistancy of Katie's poop as she had not been feeling well for a few days. It didn't even enter my mind of what I was eating & discussing...DH was amazed...me I just wanted to know that Katie was feeling better.
