I recieved the following list today via email from our pediatrician's office. I think those of us who are mom's can relate to the majority of the items! ENJOY!

You Know You're a Mother When.....

You use your own saliva to clean your child's face.

You have time to shave only one leg at a time.

Your kid throws up and you catch it.

Someone else's kid throws up at a party. You keep eating.

You've mastered the art of placing large quantities of pancakes and eggs on a plate without anything touching.

Your child insists that you read "Once Upon a Potty" out loud in the lobby of Grand Central Station and you do it.

You cling to the high moral ground on toy weapons; your child chews his toast into the shape of a gun.

You always go to the bathroom with a "friend".

You hope ketchup is a vegetable, since it's the only one your child eats.

You can't bear the thought of your son's first girlfriend.

You hate the thought of his wife even more.

You find yourself cutting your husband's sandwiches into cute shapes.

You can't bear to give away baby clothes - it's so final.

You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.

You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.

You donate to charities in the hope that your child won't get that disease.

You hire a sitter because you haven't been out with your husband in ages, then spend half the night checking on the kids.

You hide in the bathroom to be alone.

You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything.

"You hide in the bathroom to be alone" and hear banging on the door followed by loud squeals of "MAAAMMMAAAAAA...!!" Which makes you drop the razor you are using to shave that one leg.! :)
Happy Mothers Day!

That list was Great. Happy Mother's Day.

BTW, Would you believe it, my son's want to take me out to dinner for Mother's Day. I guess that is what I get for wearing an apron whenever I cooked when they were growing up.

Any way, I don't have the heart to say no.
