You get to chase your child around the house. You keep on arranging the books on the shelf since our kids keep on getting them. You tend to watch Barney or any other cartoons with them :)!

 

Beautiful life it is :)!

Special things that have been kept in good condition for years are now either broken, misplaced or grimy.

Oh yes!  I made a rule last night.  When I sit down to eat, no one is allowed to ask me for anything, unless it's an emergency.

I must have been doing this subconsciously for 18 years.

You hear ANY wet noise (cat drinking, breast milk squirting into the pump, etc) and you jump up with a rag and a pair of undies to clean up kiddo and the rug

... The coffee table is not for 'painting' on with the contents of a sippy cup...
... No shoes are not to be licked ...
... Dixie cups don't go in the toilet and aren't to be flushed ...
... Bread machine is not for storing toys in...

You never have clean towels in the house because you always have to clean up messes. 

 

You know the words to every children's song and tv show.

...you are trying to explain something to your husband and you say, "Look at mommy..." or "Now, listen to mommy" by accident... :)

,,,your missing underwear are currently being worn as a hat

 

…you spend ten minutes shouting out random food items while your child emits a series of grunts and squeals while pointing at the refrigerator 

 

…you look in the mirror and discover you've been walking around with four owl stickers on your face for the last two hours

You can't keep eggs in house, because it is too much fun to break them on the floor.

No one in your house is college-aged, but you feel like you're living in a frat house with the level of order and randomness of objects you come across. Oh hai solo cups in the bath tub!...I didn't even know we had solo cups.

Every object in your house is a toy phone, including corn on the cob.

... Every paper product in your bathroom is shredded

You find yourself CONSTANTLY having to come up for a reason for EVERYTHING to answer the never ending "why" interrogations. I bet I heard why? no less than a thousand times yesterday.
