You know you’re a mom if the dark circles under your eyes is not from partying but from sleep deprivation due to a crying child…..

You know you’re a mom if you suddenly run out of water in the mall and you drink from your child’s sippy cup….

You know you’re a mom if you realize you have spit up on your shirt while at the bank…

You know you’re a mom if you prefer to be in time-out….

You know you’re a mom if  you make coffee and drink it cold…

You know you’re a mom if you cut up everyone’s food at that table while out in a restaurant….

You know you’re a mom if while trying to use the bathroom, you have constant knocking and banging on the other side of the door…..

You know you’re a mom if you use words like “potty” and “tinkle” with your friends….

 You know you’re a mom if you put salt instead of sugar into your coffee….

You know you’re a mom if you have two-inch roots because you can’t find the time to touch them up….

You know you’re a mom if your lipstick is broken in half  but still manage to use it….

You know you’re a mom if all your high heels are crooked….

You know you’re a mom if  your screaming toddler is heard by everyone else except you…

You know you’re a mom if you wish you had eight arms….

 You know you’re a mom if you’re crying with your baby….

You know you’re a mom if you wait for everyone to eat and consume the leftovers on their plates….

You know you’re a mom if you have clothes only for feeding the baby…

You know you’re a mom if you find yourself drinking from a juice box…

You know you’re a mom if you ask your child “How does this look on me, sweetie?”…

You know you’re a mom if you have gates put up all over the house, and leaping over them is your idea of a daily workout….

You know you’re a mom if you use the television as a babysitter for just 30 minutes, and feel guilty doing it….

You know you’re a mom if you save everything from birth to five years of age, and beyond…

                                                      

But most of all…

You know you’re a mom if  by the end of the day you would do it all over again, and wish they could always stay in your arms as your little baby.
