The writing prompt this week didn’t take very long to choose, You Know You’re a Mom When. In fact it was so clear that this list was quickly compiled while waiting for classes to change during a school Veteran’s Day program. Let me know in the comments if you have any more to add to this star studded list.
- You use your own spit to clean off something from your child’s face.
- Sleep has become more important than a shower.
- You start calling your child by their full name when they are in trouble.
- You eat a pudding snack for breakfast.
- You can carry bags on each arm and a child on each hip.
- When you walk around all day with some sort of dried fluid on your clothing. It may or may not be a bodily fluid from your child.
- When you are armed with some sort of camera at all times and you’re not a professional photographer.
- You pack your pockets or purse with snacks and wipes.
- Your kids have better clothes and shoes than you do.
- You scare other people by the thrill you get from an adult conversation.
- The food on your plate is no longer just for you. Now that food is constantly shared or stolen by someone else.
- Your hiding place becomes a closet because you have now said good-bye to any type of privacy in the bathroom.
- The ponytail or bun is your go to hairstyle.
- When you hear a child say the word “Mom” your head automatically turns.
- You call your own Mom to apologize for whatever you did in your childhood.
Did I miss any good ones? I would love to get another giggle or two about knowing when you’ve entered parenthood! Let me know in the comments.
