The Mommy Series - Part I

Hey Mommies - listen up !! You know you are a Mommy when ........

You automatically double-knot everything you tie.

You find yourself humming the Barney song as you do the dishes.

You hear a baby cry in the grocery store, and you start to gently sway back and forth, back and forth. However, your children are at school!

You actually start to like the smell of strained carrots mixed with applesauce.

You weep through the scene in Dumbo when his mom is taken away, not to mention what Bambi does to you.

You get soooo into crafts you contemplate writing a book called 101 Fun Crafts to do with Dryer Lint and Eggshells.

You spend a half hour searching for your sunglasses only to have your teenager say, "Mom, why don't you wear the ones you pushed up on your head?"

You are out for a nice romantic meal with your husband, enjoying some real adult conversation, when suddenly you realize that you've reached over and started to cut up his steak!

... when you get together with your girlfirends for a girls night out and all you talk about is feeding...potty training ..school..

LOL@ cutting your husband's steak!

To continue with Nainaashley's theme, you go out to dinner with your husband and all you talk about is the kids (when the kids are new, anyway).

When you start mashing the food on your plate....

LOL cutting the husband's steak

Am guilty of wiping food from husband's upper lip with wet napkin in public dining situation. Much embarassment. Was gently reminded he was not the kid.

Just Like That said...

Btw, do you really know something to do with that lint and egg shells? *hopeful look*

SUR NOTES said...

hilarious- did the cutting up the food... and the rocking back and forth.
i have even absent mindedly cut my roti into tiny bit sized pieces while talking to someone over lunch and suddenly realised i had only myself to feed!

Hip Grandma said...

Ha, Ha do you stop with cutting up steaks or do you shove food into his mouth and wipe his lips every now and then.I must find out from him

The last one was THE best!

I can add one more to the list. When you don't call your hubby with his name but as papa or daddy! :P

I realised how often I do that recently! :D

@nm: LOL. Just realised now only call the husband Papa. Even think of him as Papa. Where has my studmuffin gone?
