You can't wait for your baby to take a nap so you can get something accomplished... then you spend his/her entire nap watching them sleep.

"Wheels on the Bus" or "London Bridge" is on constant replay in your head at night while you're trying to fall asleep.

You've googled "how to remove (insert stain here) from carpet".

You can't remember the last time you watched something that wasn't animated.

You've shot out of bed and made it halfway down the hall before your mind has even registered that you heard the baby crying.

Sometimes you don't get to take a shower before noon - the next day.

You've never had a heart so full of love.

Your "alone" time usually consists of Daddy babysitting the kids while you clean something.

You find yourself rocking back and forth even when you're not holding the baby.

If you actually still carry a purse, instead of cosmetics it now has random toys, pacifiers, burp rags and cheerios.
haha to all of these, love them and I do them all. Including STILL watching him on and off while he sleeps rather than getting things done. OR if im not watching him, i miss him. And i tend to ponder around; missing him.

You know you;re a mum when you actually still watch cbeebies after LO has gone down for a nap

...when you haven't taken a shower longer than 5 minutes in months and your hairy legs show it.

...when you go anywhere without LO and you hear a baby cry your heart skips a beat. And you always feel like you're forgetting something if you don't have them with you to strap them into the carseat.

...when you know a half dozen children's books by heart.

...when you can change a diaper and make a bottle with your eyes closed.

...when chasing LO and stepping over baby gates is your only form of exercise.

...when there's nothing on your coffee table but rubber edges.

...when your dresser drawers become baskets.

...when you stub your toe and immediately start your labor breathing.

That's all I can think up for now...but I second the rocking even when I'm not holding the baby, a purse full of diapers and toys, using the bathroom with the door open, singing kids songs from toys and tv. Sooo funny!

I'm loving this new section!

When you know you'll never have a deep sleep again because your mind is always on them

When you realise everything you talk about comes back to being baby related

When you say your facebook profile won't turn into a typical mummy profile and then realise your cover photo and profile picture are of your little one(s) and all you ever upload are pics of them or statuses about them

When arguments over who slept longer with your partner are a serious thing hahaha

When DTD is random, quick, and stops midway because of a crying baby.

Or when you just get used to DTD with the tiny little eyes still in the room and think "God forgive me!" bc you just need the mommy/daddy time so badly!

Or when you finally try to ignore the crying bc older sibling is playing with the baby, and STILL get interrupted with a knock at the door "CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE THIS BABY?!?!"

You can tell where I am presently, can't you? *sigh* Momma needs some lovin... lol

You start hearing yourself saying the same phrases to your kids that your parents used to say to you (and they actually make sense now!)

Getting a full nights sleep is like winning the lottery

When you read news stories about bad things happening to kids you can't read anymore because you automatically put your LO's face on that poor baby.

When someone shows off their newly decorated nursery for their unborn baby on facebook and you actually wonder if you should mention that crib bumpers aren't the greatest idea for newborns

When you'd rather get whatever illness your child has than see them suffer.

When your son has better clothes and shoes than you do.

When every little thing he does is magical and he's the most brilliant child ever

When you realize that there's no purer love than that of a mother for her child and you'd do anything to protect them.

you get your kids dressed but stay in your jammies cos why make more washing for yourself

you have wires selotaped to walls and hidden by cushions

you have nothing nice lower than 4ft.

your teething child chewing on the sofa doesn't phase you

caffeine becomes a staple food in your diet

going to bed at 9/10pm is no longer "for old people" but essential

your bath tub is filled with toys and you only remove them If your going to be shaving your legs!

When you realize it's been months since you got to drink your morning coffee while it was still hot.

When you buy shirts based solely on how well the color and pattern will hide a spit up stain.

When the only time you get to clean the bathroom is while you are stuck in there supervising toddler bath and splash.
