You Know You're A Mom When-sDaze

You know you're a mom when...
  • You curse the day you ever introduced your child to Barney, The Wiggles or Elmo.
  • You are not above bribery in order to get your kid to do, eat, go, pick up or just "be" what you want them to at any given time. I haven't started this yet with Lucas, but I have witnessed it and some of you moms are so GOOD at it, I might need lessons (Coreen!).
  • Your pediatrician and your favorite babysitter are on speed dial on your phone.
  • You aren't even phased anymore by being sneezed all over or getting poop under your fingernails and in fact, you have come to accept it as part of the territory.
  • 4000 of the 5092 photos in your digital photo library are of your child.
  • You're up at 10:00 showering, shaving, blow drying your hair, folding laundry and emptying the dishwasher.
  • You have read and re-read Where's Spot a gazillion times and your child is only a year old.
  • The sound of the word "mama" melts your heart every. single. time. you hear it.
I love putting these lists together each week. Thanks, AZ Mama at Our Daze in the Desert!

The best is yet to be.

I positively love this list! FYI - the last one becomes especially sweet when the word "grand" precedes the "mama".

Greetings! I’m visiting from the Blog Frog Mom Loop Community Comment Follow and I am so glad that I did!

Such a sweet list! I can't wait to I hear my child say mama. Shoot, it melts my heart when I hear children call their mom "mama."

Lovely list. It made me laugh too as I can see myself in it!!! (Poop under your nails, reading the SAME book over and over again, ha ha).
I wish I had recorded the girls first "Mamas"... xoxo

Yes, yes, YES to all of the above. I am a briber (word?), through and through, and I am not ashamed to admit it. And as for Barney...never fear...it will pass. The purple love affair lasted far longer than I would have liked, but he's out. Finally.

I bribe too. It works like a charm every time!
