OMG that just happened to me three weeks ago...!!!

-- when you buy a brand new tube of toothpaste and two days later it turns up missing.. and then a month later you find it shoved between the mattress on the floor and the bedframe (of course! that's where are always store our toothpaste..)

-- when you find a little red ball under your bed that you don't recognize and you realize it's a month old POTATO

-- when fully half your caloric intake comes from food that has been either licked, chewed, or is from off the floor

-- when you are reading this thread and trying not to laugh TOO hysterically loudly so you don't wake your toddler up and have him interrupt your wild friday night...

....when you try to change your menstrual pad before your child finds you in the bathroom because whenever he sees a dirty one he proudly announces "mama poop." Because you know you would have to tell him over and over that it isn't poop, oh and only girls have this "special poop."

...when you think nothing of simultaneously nursing and changing a poopy diaper because it is the ONLY way she will stay still.
...and you have done this in front of others.

...you actively seek out construction sites on your walks or drives - even if it makes you late - just so your LO can see all the diggers and big trucks.

...you get excited to learn they'll be tearing a house down just up the street b/c LO will be able to watch the whole process every day.

...you have to remind your husband not to eat the pasta in the fridge b/c you already told DS he was going to have "Ssta" for lunch : and you DO NOT want to come home to find an empty tupperware in the sink and remnants of pasta sauce on your DH's face.

...find yourself trying to read all these posts w/ tears running down your face b/c you're stifling laughter while DS is asleep in the next room!

This week was so much fun for my DD bc a tree in our backyard fell on our house... and then we got to watch the guys for 8 hours (in 100+ degree heat) cut the tree down. FASCINATING if you are two! Not so much if you are the parent.

you know you're the poarent of a toddler

...when you have to move the buffet and vitrine cupboards in the living room(play area) several times a year while cleaning to FINALLY find all the little bits and pieces of incomplete toys and little toys missing. And being actually HAPPY for that! And making LO happy with the little recovers :.
Just think of puzzles, toy spoons and knives, toy coins and the like.

...when you have food poisoning and your two-year-old dumps out all the clean, folded laundry onto the kitchen floor and then pours an entire carton of orange juice over it and you burst into tears because you know there's no use in getting mad and you don't have the energy anyway

...you wake up to tiny fingers pulling the ear plugs out of your ears and shouting 'GET UP, MUMMY!!" at full volume

Ok the pp reminded me of one more way that I know that I am a parent of a toddler:

When you look forward to the weekend all week so that you can sleep a little bit later, but DS wakes you up 30 minutes earlier on Saturday morning yelling "wake up mombee, wake up!":

When you win at hide-and-seek every single time because your toddler can't stop giggling when she's hiding and you're trying to find her.

(this happened to us this morning )

...you can't decide if that thing hanging from your kid's nose is a booger or a piece of cheese.

...you find cheerio bits on your nipples after nursing.

My 4,5yo just exclaims: 'I Am Here!' before you even counted to ten
My 2,5yo just follows the one hiding so you can't hide at all from seeker

I'm wearing spiderman bandaids on my legs currently to cover up where I butchered myself shaving yesterday. I am quite the sophisticated mom

My back hurts today...
This is why we have a king (and thank God DH works 3rd shift). We rotate our way around the bed.

Okay, my turn to add some.

When the Jehovah's Witnesses hear me and DS1 coming to the door and just hand me a pamphlet and run

When you thank God that your cousin answers the phone at the pest control place, because she knows exactly what that noise is in the background (DS1 beating on his mini guitar with a back scratcher...)

And oh... a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

...when you have morning sickness and he thinks it's so fun to get to bring mommy the vomit bowl.

When you have to explain why you have panty liners stuck to all the furniture. They make great stickers.

When you have this conversation with your 2.5 yo:
"Mom!"
"What?"
"Mom!"
"What?"
"Mom! Mom! Mom!"
"WHAT?!"
"Hi!"

These are so funny - I'm laughing out loud.


When you hear yourself say "Don't pee on your brother" while the kids are in the tub.

You go to turn the TV on at 9pm when the kids are asleep and are greeted by a grating intro to Wonder Pets.

When you turn your car on the flashers and windshield wipers come on because your 3 year old climbs through and pushes all the buttons on the way to his car seat.
