You know you're a mom when. . .

  • The prospect of sharing a bowl of guacamole with your 2 year-old sounds like a GOOD and FUN idea.
  • You find yourself putting your toddler's shoes on WHILE you go to the bathroom to save time.
  • A trip to the zoo with a 2 year-old and a baby is an activity you actually look forward to.
  • You throw broken toys away while your kids are asleep so that you don't have to deal with the meltdown.
  • You eat whatever your kids are eating for lunch so they don't whine for the reruns that you are having (even though they won't eat them if you serve it to them).
  • Unless the cut needs gluing (the modern alternative to stitches) the boy is just fine.
  • You get excited when your son decides to pee standing up
  • You know where every bathroom is at every place you stop because your kid has used them all!
  • You are happy when your son decides to go play trucks downstairs instead of insisting that you get up and play with him. (Although he always chooses trucks with sirens and sound to play with in the morning).
  • Your mantra changes daily. "Keep walking!" "Stand up!"  "Get back here!" "Eat!" "Say Sorry."  "Share."
  • You avoid walking by nursery after church until Dad has picked up the kid so that you don't have to try and juggle a baby and a toddler in the crowds, or listen to him scream because you didn't come and get him.
  • You think there is no good time for church.
