"You know you're a Mommy when..."

I come up with these sayings all the time in my head.
Like the other day I thought to myself: "you know you're a mommy when you have no clue there is spit up in your hair until you look in the mirror...HOURS later."
(yes, true story)

SO I asked y'all to finish this sentence:

"You know you're a mommy when..."


You know you're a Mommy when...

you have diapers and wipes in your purse even when you aren't with your little ones.

you actually TELL someone to spit something in your hand.
And then you wait open-handed in front of them and are happy when they spit it out.

you lick your thumb to wipe something off their face.

you look at them and see nothing but perfection.

you hide candy in your closet so you don't have to share.

you take a picture of yourself and your little one a million times to get it just right.


You know you're a Mommy when...

you take your little one into a warm bath with you just so he will poop.
And then you do it again and again to keep him regular.

your purse is filled with (used) Boogie wipes, random cheerios, goldfish, raisins, etc.

your little one pees on your shirt and you don't even bother to change.

you think their eyes are the most beautiful ones you have ever seen.

your Netflix recently watched list is nothing but cartoons.

one of the best moments of your life was when #1 met #2.


You know you're a Mommy when...

you dread being separated from your two rowdy toddlers to go to the hospital to deliver your next precious baby.

you find yourself singing the theme song to a disney movie out loud to yourself in public,
only to realize you are by yourself...in public.

you realize you are cutting your OWN food into tiny pieces.

you are sitting on the couch watching cartoons, feeding a baby doll, and talking on a toy phone just to see your baby smile.

you take a picture of a "choo choo" on your road trip because you know your little one will love looking at it when she scrolls through the pictures on your phone.

You know you're a Mommy when...

you have to change 4 times in an hour because you keep getting thrown up on, and you aren't grossed out because you feel so bad for your sweet sick baby.

you get excited about the littlest things.

you find a dirty diaper in the back of your car, forgetting you changed him back there in a restaurant parking lot last week.

part of your life is dedicated to the ever-important paci, and you will drop all you are doing to find one when it is needed.


You know you're a Mommy when...

all you can think about it having a night to yourself... until you do.
Then all you can think about is them.

you have to throw a nursing blanket over yourself before answering the door.

you'd rather wipe snot on your favorite jeans with your bare hands than let it run down their face when you have no tissue.

you are out without your kids and find a paci in your coat pocket.

you allow your little one to carry her "lovie" in your family pictures so she wont throw a fit...
but it turns out to be your favorite picture of all.
