- Being peed on, puked on, or even pooped on doesn't faze you because it happens daily.<br><br><br><br><br>

You think it's normal to say things like "Cats are not for licking" and "Please don't put the raisins up your nose" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

The baby vomits on you and you think "I should change shirts." It's the very end of the day before you realize you never actually did so...

you listen to your college-age brother talking about finals week (and the grueling all night study sessions) and wish you could trade places with him... so that you could get more sleep!

* A 10PM bedtime is a late night<br>
* Getting a sitter two nights in a row seems like a luxury bordering on gross extravagance<br>
* You enthusiastically ask your DH about his "poops" when potty-learning ears are in listening distance-- and esnthusiastically discuss your own<br>
* Waking up at 9AM is sleeping late<br>
* You can no longer watch TV shows or movies where children are hurt (like L&O:SVU... I used to love that show. There's no way I can watch it now).

When I first found out I was pregnant I was watching an episode of CSI that involved a child being molested and killed...I had to watch it in short pieces because it was so disturbing.

You don't remember the last time you went to the bathroom with the door shut.<br><br>
You exclaim "A bike!" every time you see one because DS is so infatuated with them, even when you are by yourself.

You start wondering if sex-ed teachers and instructed to talk about how much having a child can "ruin your life" because your life is better now that you have kids then it ever was before.<br><br>
You start singing you LO's favourite kids song on the bus on your way home from the store because it's stuck in your head now.<br><br>
You turn down a night out with a friend because you have other plans that you don't want to miss... that include popcorn, pillows and blankets in the living room and a G rated movie.

...when you have caught vomit in your hands without flinching.<br><br>
...when you have nursed a child in a forward facing carseat while still being buckled in yourself.<br><br>
...when you have to ask that underwear be worn at the dinnertable.

*When your entire life is affected by if the baby has pooped yet or not.<br>
*When you can whip up four different dinners for four different people in less than 20 minutes.<br>
*When you spend more on diapers in a month than you do on clothes for yourself in a year.<br>
*When you can clean up just about anything with nothing but baby wipes.<br>
*When you find yourself looking forward to Jack Black being on Yo Gabba Gabba!<br>
*When you find yourself watching iCarly and actually liking it long after the children are in bed. (Don't judge me...Spencer is hilarious!)<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Dh and I have definitely said over the years things like "Cat!" "Look a horse!" and "There's Orlando Bloom!"

When you can sucessfully snappi a prefold on a sleeping baby without waking them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
When you know what the terms "snappi" and "prefold" even mean.

when you find yourself flipping through 'good housekeeping' in the store looking for quick family friendly recipes instead of 'cosmopolitan'

When your baby is dressed immaculately in hand-sewn matching clothes, but you routinely wear the three-years-old top that's breastfeeding-friendly and has rusk smeared on the sleeves.<br><br>
When your mother saves jam lids for you, because the baby likes to chew on them.

When the most dancing you have done in ages is in front of the potty, and invovles a song about learning to poop there. When you look at eveything you put down in the house and think, wll someone try to put this in thier ear, mouth, nose, etc!
