You know your a mom when...

  • You don't get dressed until 2 PM. Heck, your lucky if you even get dressed at all. Sweatpants and tank tops become a wardrobe staple. (For us SAHMs!)
  • Your house is in shambles but you feel accomplished because the baby is fed, changed, and happy. Plus, it adds character. 
  • You no longer feel the need for a purse when your diaper bag fits everything you ever need. 
  • You stay up late at night just to get "me" time. Even if it means you get little sleep. Yes, my baby STILL wakes up at night.
  •  You crawl under the crib at 2 AM searching for their pacifier as if your life depended on it.
  • You call a pacifier anything but "pacifier". 
  • Hearing any kind of news of a child in pain brings tears to your eyes.
  • You can get dressed, put make-up on, do your hair, and entertain the baby...all in under 20 minutes. 
  • Baby magazines have replaced fashion magazines.
  •  You never arrive anywhere on time. You are always doing "one last thing" before you actually leave the house.
  • You actually laugh out loud when someone with a newborn asks if it gets easier. 
  • Bodily fluids don't gross you out anymore. Sorta.
  • You have considered trading anything for just one night of good sleep.
  • You consider parenting to be the best job in the world.
