preshpb Having to explain to a 3 old how baby ended up in your tummy. Having to say " no honey, I didn't swallow the baby" when they wonder how it's got in your tummy if you didn't get it in through your mouth.

preshpb I so love love this thread! I have laughed so much and so hard my ribs hurt! GOODNESS.
· you go to a friends house and see a knife, toothpick, breakable item on the counter and you move them out of the way even when your friend has no kids and yours are at home.

All the hippos go away
Nine hippos and a beast join
Eight hippos riding east
While seven hippos going west
Leave six hippos quite distressed
Five hippos then set forth
With four hippos headed north
Three hippos says "good day"
And the last two hippos go their way
One hippo, alone once more
Misses the other fourty-four

Wow... I cannot believe I just remembered that without help!

::: Yay! I'm not weird!

dachshund mom You cry at the thought of having another one as your overtired baby screams and won't fall asleep, then moments later she's peacefully sleeping in your arms and you cry at the thought of never getting to do this again.

You consider duct taping your dogs' ears to his head (because he keeps standing right next to the finally asleep baby and shaking them and the flapping wakes her up).

You wonder why the ceiling fan is so much more interesting than you are.

Emily's Mama You talk to your child's favourite stuffed animals, even when you are alone with them!

We couldn't find DD's very loved green stuffed froggy. When I found him out on the street in front of the house, I picked him up and dusted him off and kind of cuddled him and said something like, "Oh, there you are. We were very worried about you", before even realising I was talking to a toy like he was my son!!

Mrs.Burke You only comb your hair once (that was only after bathing)

LOL.

In our house there is an elaborate, never-the-same-twice dance/song that occurs.

MrsAprilMay You're in the middle of the grocery store when you notice that you haven't latched your nursing bra back into place.

And when you've caught vomit in your hands.

AFWife I'm packing to move back in with in-laws...As I'm talking through it while on the phone with DH I said, "...and that has pee on it..." and then stopped because it came out so casually

JD5351 Still waiting for my kiddo to be born..(15 days..yay!)

But yesterday at dinner, my friends 2 year old sat next to me, and he was eating a piece of fried mozzerella...He took too big of a bite, so he started gagging on it. So I held out my hand and he spit the slobbery piece of half chewed fried mozzerella out. I didn't even flinch. LOL

...you take down the piece of aluminum foil with a Bandaid stuck on it that was taped to the wall above your bed for several weeks after your child was "decorating", and you carefully put it aside so that if he notices its absence and throws a fit, you can show him you did NOT throw it away.
HHAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!: I thought I was so alone on all of these! I've never laughed so hard in my life! The "catching vomit" thing? That hit so close to home I may just cry!

A few of my own:

-I sneak my MDC posts because if DD catches me I'll have to play with the smilies for an hour or she'll make "the face". You know the face... with a little . Ugh!
-Every time I hear a toilet flush I yell "Did you wash those hands?". EVERY time. No matter where I am.
-When I fix a plate of food, I automatically grab 2 forks.
-I check every day before work to be sure that the 10 Monkeys haven't decided to relocate from their Barrel to my purse.

OR! Or, maybe it's Lightning McQueen. And you know where they are sold and you know how much they cost at each location down to the tax, and which store has different new ones, and you know which store has the same old classic ones, and know exactly where to go to get the brand new, just out, much coveted pooped-in-the-potty blue dinoco Lightning Mcqueen, which is a different store that you would go to to get one to replace the old loved-till-the-paint-is-chipped-off, or lost plain old Doc Hudson that you've been begged and pleaded with to find or fix for the past 2 weeks.

ians_mommy *You get really excited when you find out Elmo is comming to the local concert venue and do not bat an eye at dropping $30/ticket.

*You firmly tell DH not to check the mail again because DS loves to do it

*Every decision is agonizing (vax, work, day care, food etc)

*You could kiss a slobbery mouth a thousand times a day and still yern for more

*Everything that used to seem so important no longer is...and everything that was neglected now means the world.

*You realiize that you really are someones whole world...and it is scary and wonderful all at once
