You Know!!

Arizona Mamma is on vacay this week from her little hippity hop, but some other regular attendees have post up today so I though I would sneak my in right under the When-sDaze wire.

You know your a Mama when your oldest refuses to take a bath after witnessing his little sister relieving herself in the bathtub and you agree that a shower really is probably the better option.

You know you are a Mama when you successfully bath 2 children and shower one child at the same time.

You know you are a Mama when you can recite all the words to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Moose a Muffin and If You Give a Pig a Pancake by heart.

You have an agreement with your son that he can only bring one blanket and one animal downstairs for the day.

You know all the names to all the animals and blankets that sleep with your children.

Rather than fight you allow your child to sleep with a soccer ball, helium balloon or plastic bat from the dollar store.

The logistics of washing a stinky well loved lovey is comparable to an act of Congress or a game of Risk.

What is reminding you of your Momminess today?

oh man, that last one hit home for me! B gets SO mad if he notices I am washing his blankie. Thankfully a girlfriend of mine had the same blanket for her DS and he didn't use it, so she gave it to me. Yay for doubles!

This is possible!?!? You might've just changed my life. :-)

I don't remember where I heard this but I totally can't claim it, but it's one of my favorites tho. 'You know you're a mom when only the front of your hair looks good'. :P

And that last one is us to a tee! We have those fights here constantly. My all time fave tho was trying to convince Hayden that he couldn't live in his spiderman costume for a week straight, that it HAD to be washed. It got so bad that I'd have to wait til he was passed out asleep, sneak in, change him in to pj's, wash the costume & dry it, & then go back in the morning before he was awake & put him back in the costume. LOL

Seriously!! That last one is giving me issue right now. Addyson's blanket is so GROSS right now, especially after traveling with it. It's such a battle to get her to let me wash it though.
