And I've used my sleeve, shirt, and fingers to wipe snot, drool, or get eye boogers. And I've done the "clean the face with my spit." (To my bf's dismay, I've also done it to him. )
I never thought I'd have to clean poop/pee/vomit out of pretty much every surface in my house.
I never thought I'd have to give up bathing/showering by myself because it just about breaks dd heart to be denied such an exciting experience.
I never thought I'd allow my kids to own/obsess over a cartoon character. But if a little Diego action figure brings her so much joy, so be it.
I never thought I'd be on the verge of losing my temper about a 1,000 times a day- then dd turned three!

When my boys were younger (they are 17 months apart), they were in constant competition, especially when it came to who had the biggest poop. It got to the point of us pulling the ruler out to try and mesure them sometimes...and keeping a tally of it, lol : They are 8 and almost 7 now and they STILL want to measure whose poop is the biggest, lol...it never ends.
Never thought I'd be so fine with being relatively pretty dirty (snot on shirt, Breastmilk on shirt, a little food smeared into my pants, etc...).
Never thought I'd 'let' my toddler do certain things... draw on himself, run around naked, play with everything, etc... I still try to have some sense of order and try to steer him in the right direction, but boy have I loosened up.
Never thought I'd be cleaning up so many bodily fluids.
Never thought I'd go two months without shaving my legs (hey it's winter, my DH doesn't care, and I've got better things to do with my time .
Never thought I'd laugh so hard at all the things he does on a daily basis. It's a real kick in the pants having this little boy in my life.
Never thought I'd be able to function on so little sleep, and never thought I'd be so challenged... Being a mom is hard work!

... do so many dishes in one day!
... let anyone else see me put on tights (especially post-pregnancy body) but when you've gotta get out the door in the morning...you'll do anything to keep the LO entertained and in a good mood!
...still be so tired all the time
...see my bad habits (i.e. yelling at the cat, pointing my finger when I say "no") manifest themselves so quickly in DD who is rapidly picking up words
...tell so many little white lies ("no, we don't have any more Veggie Booty left")
...think it was funny when DD peed on the carpet (I'm pretty sure it was deliberately) literally 20 hours after we got it installed in her room (I thought it was funny because she was trying to get a diaper out of the drawer while running around naked and I was so proud that she is starting to recognize the urge to go...her timing's just a bit off!)
