When you grab your (very grown, older than you) friends arm while attempting to cross the street and point out the car coming.

And later that same night push his drink longer in on the table, away from the edge.

And when you go to the bathroom a little later (same night) you announce that you "just have to go pee, be right back hon".

And you don't realize until reading this thread that that might have been weird to your friend and that you really haven't spent time out w/o kids in so many years.

These are great.. I needed a chuckle.

When you say "its ok, mommy will get it" and realize that you weren't talking to your child or a child at all
When your bookcase that use to be full with classics is now full with Dr. Suess
When an intellectual conversation comes down to how fall the baby has crawled across the floor that day.

I consider Dr. Suess to be a classic.

My additions:

*when you find yourself offering a "boo-boo kiss" to your husband who has stubbed his toe.

I have done this soooo many times.

Now mine:
When dressing up to go out involves wearing a matching macaroni necklace and bracelet with homemade glitter glue/paper jewels strung on it becuz it was a special gift from your dc and seeing it on you makes his/her eyes light up.

These are great!!

When you get puked on and you don't even consider changing, just rub it in!!

When YOU smell like baby puke because it's still in your hair.

When you are bouncing/rocking your whole body when you aren't wearing your baby.

My DH found himself doing this last week at work!

Here's mine:

When you find yourself spelling out words to your DP, no kids in sight.

Haha My Dh ask for booboo kisses sometimes
Ah I can totally relate to the whole sleeping in the pee. Altough we usually throw a towel over it until morning.
boogers dont fase me now.
While driving DS sees "COOOOWWSS" and you run off the road looking for the cow.

  • When you make up songs to sing during diaper changes, i.e. "Isobel pooped and Mommy changed the diaper.......Isobel pooped and Mommy changed the diaper!!!"
  • When you can't plan a time to sleep, and three hours in a row sound refreshing.
  • When you finally have "free time", you have to choose sleep vs. eating, vs. chores, vs. spending time with your s.o.
  • When you spend all day on MDC b/c you are nursing anyway, so you might as well be NAKing.
  • When leaving the house to go anywhere is a major ordeal, and you long for the days when you could leave on a whim & stay out as long as you wanted.
post #31 of 155
When you've eaten food that has been gnawed on or even soggy. It gives a whole new meaning to sharing food.
post #32 of 155
...when you're not sure if the brown spot on your arm is chocolate or poop and then you lick it to find out.
post #33 of 155
  • When you stay up until the wee hours just to get some time ALONE, rather than to hang out with others.
  • When your kid has dirt on her face and you instinctively lick your thumb. (Which you SWORE you would never do!)
  • When you wonder, in all seriousness, how much play dough is TOO much.
  • When you offer to "pee race" just to get your kid to try before you leave the house.

This thread is GREAT! It's the antidote to the scary once-you're-a-mom-the-fun-stops things that I have been hearing!
post #35 of 155
These are fun! I've been there with the messes on the shirt and not changing. (I got peed on- through a diaper- four times in one day and I think I changed after the fourth one)

I keep forgetting what I want to add! That's part of the fun, too! Oh, when you realize that you don't REALLY have to take a shower every day. (And get to take baths with your babe!)

When you realize how much time you wasted before you had your baby!

When you get crappy sleep, no time to yourself, have a stiff back from nursing, can't pee without it being an ordeal.... and you frequently fantasize about having another one!! Yes!

.... you walk into someone's house and immediately start mentally 'babyproofing' before you've even sat down.

... you pack a 3-course meal for your LO whenever you leave the house, but don't eat anything yourself between breakfast and dinner

... your laundry is 2/3 nappies, 1/3 clothes, and very, very, very occasionally .... sheets

To be fair though, you don't have to be a parent to obsess over Orlando Bloom!

LOL. I do that all the time!
My mother has even been known to lean over and cut up DH's meat for him before she or DH realises what she's doing!

Now mine:

You know you're a parent when your hot drink is always stone cold by the time you drink it and you eat biscuits (cookies) really quietly in teh kitchen so that you don't have to share! :
