You Know You are a Stay at Home Mom When....

1. You forget what day it is

2. You are in SHOCK when your baby naps long enough that you actually get all the laundry and housecleaning done and STILL have time to take a shower and get dressed

3. You get TICKED when someone asks, "So what do you do all day?" Really???

4. You are in your pajamas past noon (and to answer #3, we are NOT lying on the couch and eating bon bons all day!)

5. You freak out when the UPS delivery guy rings the doorbell right when your baby has gone down for a nap

6. You feel good about yourself when you are able to get out of the house and run more than 1 errand

7. You had NO idea how many solicitors come by during the day

8. You love going to the grocery at 10:30 on a Tuesday when nobody is there!

9. You struggle with feeling "nap locked" at home (thanks Elizabeth Gunter, for sharing this term with me!) because you only have a short window of time before you have to be back home for the next nap

10. On a really bad day (sick baby, sick mommy, teething or just plain fussy), Signing Time and Baby Einstein DVD's are your BEST FRIEND.

11. When your husband comes home and asks, "So how was your day?" you find yourself downloading the minute details of diapers, naps, meals, and funny moments.

12. When your husband comes home, you are SO ready to hand off your child, but have learned to graciously allow him a few minutes of "unwind time" (I have to ignore the voice that says: what about MY unwind time?!?)

13. On a bad day, you feel envious of your working mom friends because you think they've got it easy (and working moms, I KNOW that's not the case, it's just a grass is greener mentality!)

14. Highlights of your day include: watching a new funny face, feeding them a new food, listening to them make a funny sound or letting them discover something like how to open a cabinet (uh oh!)

15. You realize that, despite how exhausted you are by the end of the day, there is no other job in the world that you'd want to be doing because they are SO worth it!!!
