You know you're a Mommy when..

My husband and I were talking this afternoon, and I said, "That's when you know you're a Mommy!" So I thought it would be fun if I added some things here that give away that we're Mommies.. There's more where this is coming from, so I'm sure this won't be the last time you see these!

You know you're a Mommy when...
you vacuum everyday, or close to it.
you've traded in your Dooney & Bourke or Coach Purse for a diaper bag.
your whole wardrobe changes to make it easier to breastfeed.
you can't finish the sentence, "Don't let her drop that toy." before you hear it hit the floor.
every time you go somewhere, it seems like you're moving.
you can change a diaper with your eyes closed, and actually have.
you go to the store and dart over to the baby/kid section
drool, poo, and spit up doesn't gross you out anymore.
dressing up really means just getting dressed.
you can walk through walmart with your eyes closed.
you find yourself changing your own diet to help out your baby.
you find yourself using the restroom with a baby in your lap.
your "work-out" is carrying your baby around.
Christmas stops being about you and your husband, and you look forward to your kids opening their presents.
10 minutes to take a shower is worth $1000 to you.
spare time is a long lost memory.
when you stop using burp clothes or bibs for drool, and just wipe it on your pants.
when you find yourself spending a little longer in the bathroom, while the hubby is home, just for a break.

Come on, guys! Add some more in the comments! You know you're a Mommy when...

You talk to your husband in that tone of voice and give him choices.
You go to the bathroom with the door open because as soon as it shuts someone will need in.
You sleep with both ears open & every unusual sound coming from the kids room can wake you from a dead sleep.
You say things that your parents said that you said you would never say when you had kids. LOL I hate when I do that:)
How fun...I could go on and on.

you stay up late, and get up early and it's because you don't have a choice not because you want to

there is more baby bottles than beer bottles in the fridge

you watch tv and see the children in the show as funnier than the parents sometimes

When you say things like.. "Don't put the cat in the oven!" and "No, you can't fly.. superman isn't real"

Your breasts comes out in public and you aren't even drunk.

You use your FINGERS to wipe a kid's snotty nose, and then wipe the booger on your own pants. (And hope no one saw you do it.)

you feel more fulfillment with less money than you ever thought you could feel.

You get up in the middle of the night, just to check on them.
You become a short order cook to please everyone!
You say, "I don't care if you wore those jeans yesterday. Wear'em again!"
I am always saying "Don't Play Ball In The House" (OK Carol Brady!)
What fun, what fun!
