You Know You're a Mom..

You know you're a mom when:

you carry socks, quiet toys, baby snacks, and pacifiers in your otherwise fashionable Coach bag

you regularly discuss baby bowel habits, nursing tendencies, and things previously considered taboo (previously: prior to giving birth) as though you are discussing the weather outside

your wardrobe is severly lacking because 1) you haven't returned to pre baby weight and 2) it's just more fun to dress up your baby than yourself

your parents no longer call or stop by for you, but for their precious grandchild
you've seen more bodily fluids in mere months than you have in your entire life, and you don't even think twice
you cut your hair off because it's just easier to deal with on limited and unpredictable BT* and it's also much less accessible to little baby fingers.

you tell your husband No No when he wants to play with the television remote or make a phone call

you make extensive notes on how to care for your child, and proceed to check on child via neurotic emails and phone calls multiple times a day

you have more of an intimate relationship with your breast pump than with your husband

your new bedtime is 9:00, which is a huge change from midnight.

But best of all, you know you're a mom when you understand just how precious the innocence of a child is, the meaning of love at first sight, and unconditional love.

I may wear my hair and makeup a little more sloppy, eat by the handful from the pantry as I stroll by, spend my nights performing a circus act in order to keep Ruby laughing, let my obsessive tendancies slack a bit, but truthfully I have never felt more fulfilled in my life.
