You Know You're A Mom When-sDaze

You know you're a mom when...
  • You can tune out almost every annoying song that a puppet sings on TV, high pitched sound that a toy produces or loud screech that comes out of your child's mouth. Almost!
  • You have considered - if only for one moment - paying a complete stranger to watch your kid so that you can take a nap or selling a kidney so that he'll take one, which leads me to...
  • Trying to give a child a "forced" nap has never worked. Okay, there was that one time, but you're a damn fool if you think it can ever be repeated.
  • You wonder why with all the toys in the world, your child is most interested in the oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, dryer, cell phone and remote control.
  • You think to yourself several times a day: Maybe I'm just not cut out for this!
  • You'd like to know where your child gets all his energy from and if it could be bottled up, you'd buy it.
  • Silence isn't always golden, it could mean that the entire contents of your son's dresser are scattered all over his bedroom floor or that he had some fun with the toilet paper roll.
  • If you could get paid to watch your child move through the world, learning and experiencing things for the first time, you'd be a gazillionaire. They are such fascinating creatures, aren't they?
Thank you, Arizona Mama at Our Daze in the Desert for developing this terrific meme. Hope you are keeping cool this summer.

The best is yet to be.

Oh, silence is dangerous. Silence means intervention is necessary or something will get broken, injured, or flushed.

I always love these lists. :)

Yes, I agree that silence is usually dangerous! They are always up to something when it's quiet....

Great list! I hope he naps again soon!

Ahh, yes. You totally could have added "Toilet Paper" to your list of household toys. (At least it's cheaper than a remote control or dishwasher if it breaks, right?)

Cute list!

I'm with the other gals. When my kiddos were really little...silence was deadly. If it was more than 60 seconds since I last heard someone wail, mayhem and mischief, and maybe injury, was ensuing!

Tonya sorry to hear of your miscarriage.

A walking Lucas is very exciting. He can get into lots of stuff now!

Here's my take on the whole having that much energy thing...it would be WAY to exhausting! Could you imagine running around the way they do? Even with the energy, I'd be tired.

Great list and I love that picture of Lucas in the toilet paper. I swear, sometimes he really does remind me of a little puppy exploring everything the way he does. : )
