Shelfari: Book reviews on your book blog

Monday, February 15, 2010

You know you are the mom of a pre-schooler when...

My friend wrote this and I think it is HILARIOUSLY true.
You think going to the grocery store alone feels like a mini vacation

The bathroom tends to be your secret hideout spot
You haven't taken a shower by yourself in over a year and you are often moving toys out of the way when you get to
Your "5" second rule when dropping food has turned into a 2 day rule
You are an expert when it comes to entertaining your child(ren) while doing your make up and hair each morning
You have mastered reading your child a book, sticking in a pacifier, handing back snacks, refilling a sippy cup all while driving your car
You have found a cheerio in your clothing or half a fruit snack stuck to your shirt
You have had to share your food for the past least.
You haven't had to have an alarm clock since your little critter has entered the world
Wiping boogers with your sleeve doesn't seem so bad anymore
You can change a diaper anywhere...lap, bathroom counter, trunk of car just to name a few
You have had to nurse your baby while going to the bathroom at the same time (TMI?)
You have about a pound of free floating cheerios, raisins and goldfish in your car
You know how to love even after he/she has been ridiculously naughty
Your purse is packed with snacks and entertainment
You will give up your music for your child's silly songs Cd's
When night time rolls around and little one(s) are to bed you either give a fist pump or high five your husband like you just completed a marathon
The topic of your child's stool textures or colors is not rare between you and your other young mom friends
You are out doing errands on your own and you are aware of every baby sound you hear in the store
You want to hurt whoever accidentally woke up your baby at nap time as that is one of the most sacred times of your day
A slobbery kiss is very much appreciated
Your capacity to love is far greater than what is was pre-child(ren)!
...My addition...
When you talk to your husband, you replace certain words by spelling...Example: "I don't want her to watch that.  They said S.T.U.P.I.D and H.A.T.E.  Should we go to the P.A.R.K? When they go to bed, we should have I.C.E.  C.R.E.A.M.


  1. OK - that is awesome!

    My addition: You wake up in the middle of the night and can't get "B-I-N-G-O" and "Skiddamarink-a-dink-a-dink" out of your head.

  2. So glad you added to this Jamie! Justin and I have just started the spelling thing. Miss you!
