There are several things that I do differently now that I'm a parent. I'll smile to myself and think, "I know I'm a Mom now!".

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

You baby is sleeping and you run out of the room to sneeze, open a bag of chips, or anything else that makes the slightest sound. When your baby is sleeping EVERY sound is loud.

You'll sit in the same position without food, water, or bathroom breaks, as long as your baby is sleeping in your lap.

When your baby starts to nap in the other room and you watch the monitor instead of the TV.

You can do almost anything with one hand.

You can accomplish anything in 5 minutes or less. Eat a full meal, shower, do a load of laundry.

If you know what I'm talking about add to the list. Or just laugh along with me :)


  1. Haha, so true! You have a good list going! I'll have to think of some others... :)

  2. Love this...all SO true. One to add about things being loud: you get uncharacteristically angry at OTHER people being loud. I still feel this way any time Dean is asleep at my parent's house (how loud do you need that TV, mom!?) or anywhere else, and I think I nightly harp on Jeff for ridiculous things like closing a cabinet too loudly. Haha. Motherhood makes you insane!
