You Know You're a Mum When.....

  • The time you spend having a wee is classed as "me time"...providing you don't get interrupted halfway through!!!

  • Your handbag is full of half eaten boxes of raisins (why is it always raisins!!), hot wheels cars and baby wipes

  • Your idea of a night out is a trip to Tesco when the kids are in bed and your husband is home

  • You can name every single CBeebies presenter......

  • .....and your idea of seeing a hot man on the telly is seeing Mr Bloom in his Peter Pan costume ;)

  • You never get to eat a whole bar of chocolate by yourself anymore

  • You frequently go out with snot or some kind of unidentified stickiness on your trousers..and you're ok with it

  • Seeing the bottom of your laundry bin means it's a GOOD DAY!!!!

  • You really learn how to multi-task - stirring dinner/checking facebook/entertaining a toddler!

  • You realise you've been watching Peppa Pig...even though your child has been asleep for the last half an hour!

  • You see an episode of Peppa Pig that you've never seen before and you actually feel excited (please say it isn't just me hah!!)

  • Your iPod playlist is now full of Disney songs which you have to have on repeat on car journeys

  • 7am is now classed as a really good lie in

  • You moo and baa at every sheep and cow you drive past...until you realise you're alone in the car

  • You know every softplay venue in a 10 mile radius

  • You forget how to walk properly without a buggy

  • You realise you've been rocking your trolley at the supermarket as if you're rocking a buggy

  • Sniffing your child's bum in public becomes the norm

  • you only get control of the remote control at 7pm

  • you use baby wipes for everything

  • You get really good at spotting the "poo face"

Do any of these apply to you?!

  1. Hehe, this had me in stitches as they are all so true xxxx

  2. Haha, I had to laugh at this! Getting control of the remote control at 7 is what I look forward to in life! I can't name all the CBeebies presenters, I can't remember the name of the guy who usually presents with Andy - why do I know this?! But I do know all the songs to the programs - I even sing them when my toddler isn't around! :)

    1. They're just too catchy aren't they!! We have them on in the car too and I often find myself singing along to theme songs when Elliot has dozed off in the back! x

  3. Love this! I even use baby wipes to clean our leather sofas! #MyFavouritePost

    1. I'm not sure what I did before I bought baby wipes?!!! x

  4. Every last one of these was me with toddlers, except going shopping after the children were asleep. With a husband in the army, I would have had to hire someone to sit with my littles, so I got to master the art of grocery shopping with twins!

    Now that my girls are 9, I'm that annoying person who tells everyone within earshot about their latest academic accomplishment or funny observation. Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.

  5. I'm awesome at spotting the poo face! It's my best skill! So many of these things happen in my life. Thanks for linking up with #MyFavouritePost
