You Know You're a Mom When...

Instead of singing "1234, tell me that you love me more; sleepless long nights, that's what my youth was for" from Feist's song 1234...

I find myself singing "1234 penguins that were by the door. I love counting, counting to the number 4..." from her appearance on Sesame Street. And dang it if that version isn't super catchy!

Now it's your turn. Finish this sentence "you know you're a mom when..."


  1. I did like this one! I know I'm a mom when I find myself singing The Campfire Song, Striped Sweater, or The Friend Song from Spongebob Squarepants - and liking it!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog while visiting another blog!

    "you know you're a mom can carry on a conversation of " be" and your kid just smiles and babbles right back atcha!

  3. You know you're a mom when your perfume is replaced by the odor of sour formula.

  4. ok this is gross and i heard it a long time ago on some list of being a new mom, but it is soooo freaking funny...
    you know you're a new mom when "sleeping on the wet spot" takes on an entirely new meaning".

  5. you know you are a mom when you are singing along to yourkid's cd in the car and you kid is at grandma's for the day. i am guilty as charged on that one. Sad thing, it has happened more than once.

  6. You know your a Mom when you still want to take a "back to school" picture of your daughter and she is now the teacher! Yeah! I am an older mom but that wanting to take pictures of firsts just doesn't go away. Thanks for stopping by "In His Grip". Your blog is so fun!

  7. you know your a mom when you are the only one who knows where ANYTHING is in the house! ;) I always sing that sesame street version too. I didn't even know there was another version! lol! And I actually heard that version in the store the other day and it cracked me up! :) It's pretty catchy though!


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
