You know you're a mom when...
1. You go to take a bite of your toast, the one and only thing you have in the house for breakfast at the moment, and you realize, by the smell, that you you haven't quite gotten all of the poop out from under your fingernail from an early morning diaper change. The grossest part? You're starving, so you keep eating, since you probably already ingested some at this late point in the morning, anyway.
2. Your precious baby is sick, and you see that he's making that face - the face every mom learns to recognize - and you realize that he's probably getting ready to vomit. Before I was a mom, my first instinct would've been to run in the opposite direction. Now? I hold my hand under his chin, rub the back of his head, and tell him, "If you're going to spew, spew into this."
3. The sight of boogers used to repulse me. The mere thought of boogers could bring me to my knees...especially a toddler's boogers, which seem to have amazing, endless properties of elasticity to them. Now? If the dreaded booger bulb is nowhere to be found and my child has one visible in his nose, I'll just pick it out. And wipe it on my pant leg/bathrobe sleeve...whatever I have, because let's face it - who really has Kleenex around when needed the most?
4. Being sprayed with snot and Cheerios from a massive sneeze isn't quite as gross as I would've imagined.
And this pretty much sums up the last 7 days of my life. Jealous?
