You know you're a mom when...

In honor of this post here at Jennifer's blog and in honor of Mother's Day... I thought I'd do one of my own.

You know you're a mom when...

You say, "stay still so I can check to see if you pooped."

You'll sing "Teddy Bear's Picnic" over and over and over again, because it calms your son instantly and can put him to sleep without fail.

You find yourself saying "don't put that in your mouth", "we don't put food in our hair", "no, the toilet is not a toy" and many others.

You find sippy cups in random places

Sleeping in is sleeping til 8am! Woo hoo!

Staying up late is not falling asleep on the sofa by 9:30pm.

You find Cherrios or Goldfish in your purse, along with wipes, pacifiers and a baby book.

When there isn't a room in your house that doesn't have baby or toddler stuff in it.

When a Saturday morning spent sitting on the floor playing choo-choo trains and reading books tops any other.

When you look at your child and know how much you love them and how you really would do anything to protect them and make them happy.
