Sure, you technically become a mom at the moment of conception. But you don’t really know you’re a mom until a little later…when the dust settles…and you realize those are stains on the floor…and your hair stays in the shape of a ponytail even after the hair tie is removed. All those times people joked about that you didn’t really understand because your newborn was just so darn cute.

If it hasn’t happened yet, it will.

Here are just a few of the times you’ll get that little reminder that you have in fact become a mom…


You voluntarily put out your hand for your child to put the booger in it that they just picked from their nose.


You constantly believe you hear a child cry while you’re trying to take a shower.


You’ve been washing the same load of laundry for three days because you keep forgetting to put it in the dryer.


Your day is a success if the laundry finally gets into the dryer before the mildew sets in.


You happily allow your child to unravel an entire roll of toilet paper in exchange for 4 minutes of quiet.


Blueberries in your house are now peeled and quartered.


You go to change into your pajamas and realize you never changed out of them.


You wipe food off your child’s face and lick your finger without thinking twice about it.


You find puffs in your bra. and in your shoe. and in the cat bowl. and in your hair.

You know what puffs are.


You pray for silence…until you hear it. Then you’re terrified.


You will sit in the driveway for 1 1/2 hours just to let your baby sleep.


You smell poop when there’s no poop around.


Dressing up nicely means putting on your good yoga pants.
