You know you're a parent when...

It's so funny the things I do now as a parent.  There are so many indicators that define us parents and here are some of them.

You know you're a parent when.....

  • You see someone zipping down your street and you yell "Hey, slow down, there are kids around!!"
  • Staying up until 10pm is late
  • And waking up at 7am is sleeping in
  • You use the word potty when you have to go to the bathroom
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is still on even after the kids went to bed 30 minutes ago
  • A trip to the dentist qualifies as "me time"
  • Date nights start at 4pm
  • You use the obnoxious grocery cart vs the traditional one
  • When getting peed on, puked on or pooped on doesn't even phase you
  • Your exciting conversations with friends are about vacuum cleaners and the latest and greatest kid toy

I know there are so many other funny things that define us, I'd love to hear yours!

*linking up with Our Pretty Little Girls for Tuesday Talk 


  1. Baha ha! I am SO happy my girls are too big for those obnoxious carts now. Those things are EXHAUSTING. This list was hilarious.

  2. LOL!!!! Bahahaha!! Yes! All of these! Especially the vacuum one and the one about going to the dentist! So funny!!!

  3. Yes to all of these! Cracking up at Mickey House Clubhouse. We've caught ourselves sitting on the couch with it still on wondering why in the world we haven't changed it. Beautifully Candid

  4. Lol. I'm soooo guilty of 1, 4, and 7. The other day I straight up sounded like an old lady because I told Brian, "I can't believe how fast that person is driving! This is a neighborhood, they need to slow down!" Haha. And I'm not at all phased by poop and pee, but puke still does me in. I just can't take it. I don't think I ever will be able to!

  5. I've recently been staying up til 10PM a few nights here & there & I have no idea why! I'm kicking myself in the morning. haha!

  6. Oh my gosh, yes!!! My personal fave: when you drive a minivan!!!! My husband's: when you are so excited to put the kids to bed and than an hour later, realize you miss them!

  7. Body fluids no longer phase me. They once did but now... it's just part of my every day.

  8. Haha pretty much every single one of these.
