My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

You Might be a Mommy

OK, not wanting to be responsible for any untimely deaths, I'm adding a no beverages and no carrot eating while reading warning to this one.

Also, I wrote this one, so if you steal it, please name me as author.


If you have to make an intentional effort to take a shower at least every 48 hours...you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you go out for a dinner alone with your husband, hear a kid scream and have to look over just to make sure it isn't one of yours...you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you no longer put "laundry" on your to-do list because by the time you get it folded, the hamper is full again.....you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If dressing up means you put on a bra...you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If someone asks your favorite time of day and you say "nap-time"....you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If it takes you more than 5 minutes to decide if you want to eat supper or go to sleep...you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you've considered getting a dog to help you keep the kitchen floor clean....you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you plan what's for dinner based on whether or not it's bath night for the kids...you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you've ever hoped for someone to put you in time out for 1 min per year of age.......you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you've ever written your shopping list in crayon....you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If this is your idea of multi-tasking...




You just might be a Mommy!

Have a good Holiday folks!

If you're wrapped in gauze, you might be a mommy, or is that mummy? I get 'em confused; they're both soooo wrapped up in what they do.

MightyMom said...

well, I've not written the shopping list in crayon....but all the rest came straight out of my life!!

truth is always funnier than fiction...or as Subvet says..you just can't make this poop up.

We attended the Plano balloon rally for several years when we had Suzy Blue. Seems like it was always windy and the events never were able to take off as planned. Trust they have better weather this year!!!

It's wonderful seeing all the balloons fly over the city...I want to take Sonshine but he's a bit too young. We'll make a point of going next year!

Linda said...

Oh this was too, too funny! You are most definitely a mommy and you have it down solid!!

I just might repost this at some point and you can be danged certain you shall get all the credit!

MightyMom said...

thank you Linda, that's high praise indeed.

Funny story I have been plagerized once (that I know of). I'd made up a VBS flyer for our church to hand out to all Elem kids (small town). 2 weeks after our flyer went out the daughter of our pastor brings home a flyer from another church in town saying..this looks like ours....
It was IDENTICAL!! The pastor asked me where ours'd come from...MY HEAD! I laughed and laughed! The highest form of flattery IS imitation!!! I still have both those flyers!! :-)
