- you have to walk very quickly past the toy aisles at the store (as if they won't notice)

 

- all of your drinks have sediment in the bottom because there's no way you're going to get to drink it all by yourself without your little backwashing partner to help you

 

- you look longingly at women with newborn babies and then say to their poor frazzled faces "gosh, I miss those days. They were so easy back then!" happytears.gif

 

- you have to keep your special treats in the top of your bedroom closet instead of in the kitchen pantry

Nope.  I thought it was just ME.  I hear people talk about their messy homes, but none of my mom friends seem to have as grimy a house as I do.  I mean, every surface below three feet needs scrubbing with something that cuts grease and removes stains (kitchen and bathroom cabinets, refrigerator, walls, dishwasher, oven, chairs, doors, etc.)  It's embarrassing, really.  I'm relieved when we have people over after sunset because they can't see how dirty the windows and walls are.

The phrase "he let me get the dishes done" is cause for celebration.

You are glad your child is still RF in his carseat so you and DH can have a "date" without your LO noticing (for us, this means running through the DQ drive-through for a Blizzard).  It was good, too.

You end emails with "would have written more, but he's up from his nap."

You feel like you have done more by 7 a.m. than many people do all day (that's an old Army line, I believe...sorry I swiped it, but it's true on some days!).

You know that people who use the phrase "sleeping like a baby" likely are either not parents or are people with very, very short memories.

You have seriously considered getting rid of the majority of your clothes since it seems you are never able to complete the following cycle within a 24-hour period:  wash, dry, fold, put away.
