You Know You're A Mom When-sDaze

You Know You're a Mom When...
  • You do a little victory dance when you can successfully transfer your sleeping child from his car seat to his crib.
  • It's only 9:00 and your living room already looks like a bomb went off in it.
  • Your child bites you on accident, draws blood and makes you cry it hurts so much and you don't turn around and bite him back.
  • You wish you could bubble wrap your child so it wouldn't hurt when they bonked themselves.
  • Your DVR has more children's shows recorded than your own.
  • You almost leave for date night with the diaper bag instead of your purse.
  • You can't wait to see, touch or smell your baby after hearing troubling news.
As always, thank you, Arizona Mama at Our Daze in the Desert for developing this terrific meme.

The best is yet to be.

haha! I never ever mastered getting the kids from the car to their crib. They ALWAYS woke up on me. both of them. :)

The DVR one is SO true! Ours kept telling us we were running out of space because of all the Max & Ruby's we had taped!

Our victory dance includes high fives, too. We still do it everytime we get Tater to bed without waking him up. The twins pretty much sleep through anything.

How are you possibly getting him from the car seat to the crib. The second I touch a car seat buckle, Alex is up.

I don't have kids shows recorded on my DVR however I do have many really lame shows the normally I wouldn't watch but I record them to have something to watch during the day. Also I have on demand and can't live without it as dora and diego save my life.

Are you telling me all these years I should NOT have been biting my kids back?

Oh. Shoot.

Love the diaper bag one. Somehow, even without kids in tow, I feel naked not having it with me. Unfortunately, it just doesn't say "chic" when paired with that little black dress.

As for the bomb at 9am. Pft. Mine always looks like a bomb went off.

I have never mastered the carseat to crib transfer either! (And I'm on kid #3! Darn light sleepers.) Great list! Just visiting from the link-up!

I have been on date night and realized I had the diaper bag with me.

My boy bit me one time and it hurt so bad that I reacted without meaning to and gave him a high five to the forehead...it was so not funny but I laugh about it now

We used to joke about buying a foam helmet like you see on One Step Ahead! :)

I could never switch them to their cribs without them waking up. That's a skill this clutzy mom never perfected! I'd sooo have done a victory dance!

I love the last one. And you are definitely a master mommy with the sleeping child car seat to crib switch. Congrats. LOL @ the bubble wrap, but I'm sure I'll feel exactly the same when it's my turn.

I actually laughed out loud at the almost leaving with the diaper bag one. My kids are too old for diaper bags now, but I used to do stuff like that all the time!

Blogger WTH am I Doing? said...

Never could do the car seat/crib switch. If either has slept for more than 35 seconds in the car seat? They are magically *fully* reenergized. I wish I got that much out of a nap. I don't get that much from a full night's sleep...

Great list, as always! :)
