You Know You're A Mom When....

~ You spill water on you in your sleep and keep sleeping

~ You hear the alarm, get up to turn it off and go right back to bed

~ By the time you eat your food is cold

~ You sport a white nail (desitin cream)

~ You wake up every 10 minutes to check on baby

~ You make dinner in 10 minutes

~ You cook, talk on phone, talk to baby and eat a snack all at the same time

~ You sport a spit up on your shirt and think it's ok

~ Do the baby talk in public and you're not embarrassed

~ You make up songs and can even rhythm

~ Don't mind laying on the floor

~ think green leaves are so awesome when showing them off to baby

~ You become a counselor, personal chef, choufer, teacher, message therapist, chiropractor, janitor, hair stylist, mani/pedicurist, translator, fashionista, entertainer, photographer

~ Think a double chin (baby's) is so adorable

~ You use baby wipes to clean your hands

~ You get noticed by everyone

~ Your lap becomes a comfortable chair

~ You look up your childhood songs online to teach them

~ The video camera finally comes out of the closet and gets put to use

~ You take a million pictures

~ You buy a toy cause you're love it and you're afraid it would be sold even though it won't be used for another year

~ Going out seems like packing for a circus

~ You make several trips to you car to load it all

~ You find yourself watching tv at 3am

~ Sleep is such a wonderful thing when possible

~ Facebook defines your social life hahaha

~ Dusting the room or making your bed before the baby wakes up is a huge accomplishment

I am loving being a mommy to Karina. I used to be a busy bee very involved at church, going to women's retreats, Bibles studies, coordinating events, meetings, couples' Bible studies and even taught at church, running errands, going out to lunch with friends now my life has slowed down and is alot simpler. Even though it's different it's not a bad thing because I am now mommy to Karina and the majority of my day envolves loving on her in many ways! I know that little by little we'll be able to get out more and be more envolved. I love being a mommy!

Oh, the joys of mommyhood.
But we wouldn't change it for the world. Glad your enjoying the best job in the world, being a mom.

My oldest is 9 and the youngest is 2 and I still pack for a circus and get little to no sleep.

Someday sleep will come, someday.

Isn't that the truth! Any mom can identify with this list. You'll eventually find your rhythm and be able to add more stuff, but you'll also find that you won't be as free to do stuff as you used to be. But that's okay. It's certainly worth it!
