You Know You're A Mom When-sDaze

I love Arizona Mama's meme You Know You're a Mom When-sDaze and I missed participating last week because I was busy celebrating my one year blogoverary and had a guest poster, who turns out is the new owner of this terrific meme, my friend Natalie at Mommy of a Monster. Yay!

You know you're a mom when...
  • Your house doesn't have enough wall space for all the photos you take of your child or the artwork they create.
  • You rack your brain each morning coming up with a fun and tiring outing for the day.
  • You consider the person that created spray on sunscreen a genius.
  • You consider the person that created (most) sippy cups a complete idiot.
  • You pity the busboy that has to clean up your table after you leave a restaurant and always over tip out of utter embarrassment.
  • You realize that some meals are all about what your kid will eat not how messy they (or your floor) get in the process.
  • You would do anything in your power to take away your child's pain or frustration or anger, even and especially if it is directed at you.

Yep, whoever (or is it whom?) invented spray on sunblock is a genius!!

And I know what you mean about being embarrassed about leaving a mess in your wake at a restaurant - I always feel horrible!

LOVE spray sunblock!! And we have over-tipped many times before, especially after one very horrible barfing-on-the-pizza incident.

I love the last one...and I have to say it continues as they age, and you just can't take it away. And it's so hard.

Nice! I always love your lists. :)

I had to get those big plastic tote bins to handle the kid artwork.

Hub used to be a server, so not only do we often tip generously, but we usually pick up after our kids (at least somewhat) before we go. LoL Being married to him has totally changed how I eat out.

When we go to Qdoba and maddie eats rice, i feel that same way! I don't know if those little manual floor "broom" vacs really suck it up well.

Spray sunblock is better than sliced bread. No doubts about that!

Hey, that's *why* I dine out! *I* don't have to clean up the mess. It's totally worth the extra tip from time to time. :) Great list!

Remind me to tell you about the sippy cups that the boy I nanny for drinks out of. They are awesome and really easy to drink from. He loves them. I think the mom got them at the Container Store.
