You Know You’re a Mom When-sdaze

April 28, 2010

This is my first time getting to participate in this meme! And I think it’s a great idea. There are tons of things that we catch ourselves saying or doing once we’re moms that really define the whole experience. Here’s a chance to share some of those oddities with others! And if you’re a mom, you’ll feel better because you’re not alone!!
I checked out a lot of them last week, and they were a hoot! You should hop over to Arizona Mamma’s blog and join in. She’s precious, you’ll enjoy her stuff!  And I’d love to hear what craziness makes you a mom!

So, here goes,

  • You know you’re a mom when you call the police when your kid takes a nap!</li>
  • You know you’re a mom when you spend half of your time at a ball field and the other half washing clothes.  I’m obviously failing miserably at the laundry part, my kids never have on shirts in any of their pictures!
  • You know you’re a mom when you have regular conversations before, during and after ball games, about how itchy your son’s “cup” is.
  • You know you’re a mom when you have to convince your five-year old son that it’s not going to be okay to wear a size 2T Christmas sweater, baseball pants, and pink high heels to preschool.
  • You know you’re a mom when you have double bagged stinking little boy shoes in your freezer.
  • You know you’re a mom when you are counting the days until summer vacation and you are not currently enrolled in school!
  • You know you’re a mom when you’re cracking crab legs or peeling shrimp as fast as you can but never seem to get a bite.
  • You know you’re a mom when you catch this scene going down in your kitchen and you grab your camera instead of the kid.

Once again, no shirt! Geesh, I never noticed that my kids were nudists until I started this blog. When you’re sharing pictures, it sure makes you aware of how crazy your family looks!

Happy Wednesday!

    I also have a nudist, and actually wrote a post about it recently! And I don’t have a 5 year old yet, but I can relate to the fashion sensibility, or lack thereof, that you are talking about 🙂 Enjoy reading your blog – found you through Arizona Mamma!

    Not sure what it is…but the kids love to be without clothes. I’m with you on the cracking and peeling but never eating thing! So funny.

    Shoes in the freezer? I can honestly say I have never though to do that.

    OOOO…putting shoes in the FREEZER! Great idea! Thanks, LL! By the way, my kids are nudists, too. The reason they have shirts on in pics is because I make them put them on. Love this post, and so glad you’ve joined this blog hop!

    I don’t know which is funnier…the itchy cup chats you seem to have, or your nudist children!

    You’re kitchen is gorgeous, by the way.

    I love your crazy family!!!

    “You know you’re a mom when you are counting the days until summer vacation and you are not currently enrolled in school!”

    I totally feel this way, too. I love the lazy days of summer. I hate it when they end!!
