You know you're a mom when...

I woke up excited today. Want to know why? Because we're going to see Ice Age 3 later and I can't wait!

As that thought passed through my head I realized something very quickly. It's a kid's movie and I'm probably more excited about it than they are. LOL What has happened to my life?! Once upon a time I used to get excited over going out to nightclubs with friends. Getting a new pedicure. Shopping at the mall with girlfriends. That's pretty much all changed.

Yes, you know you're a mom when...

the term 'psycho mom' does NOT need to be explained

you're favorite moments are spent watching old home movies

you're car has petrified chicken nuggets under the seats...on a regular basis

you're hot friday night consists of pizza and an animated movie

you can't see the front of your fridge because of all the 'artwork'

at least once a week you repeat phrases that you're mother used to say...and it makes you cringe

you know how to use the guilt card like a pro (thanks, mom!)

you can cook, scold, and talk on the phone without blinking an eye

your fancy purse contains an emergency kit: hairbows, crayons and bandaids

you wish you could erase the phrase, 'mom, I'm bored' from their vocabulary forever!

and for those with teens...

your best weapon is threatenting to take away their cell/ipod/internet connection "BWHAHAHA!"


Geez, I really need a vacation. LOL

How did you know I needed a laugh today!!!! I remember when my son was a little guy and I took him to see Beauty and the Beast. Later, I'd say...hey! Wanna go see that again? By the fifth or sixth time we saw it, he started ROLLING HIS EYES when I'd ask. LOL. Yep. Loved that one waaaay more than he did.

The "I'm BORED" thing had me laughing. I remember I couldn't wait for school to be out and the regimented stuff to stop and then about three weeks into summer I was ready to pull by hair out. Typical, I think.

LOL. That's great. I'm so with you. I'm SUCH a mom.

Regina--I was SO excited about the end of school. But I've been getting that "I'm bored" enough now that I'm ready start giving them more chores, just to keep them busy. LOL

It's a rough job for sure, you have to be on your toes.

You know you're a mom of boys when you don't mind watching star wars/jaws/transformers/spongebob for the 25th time and can recite the dialogue as well as they can.

Can anyone say "I'm a goofy goober, yeah"?

Well, I am ya know...

Connie Northrop said...

Yep, that's it. Don't forget that video game removal also works on most of them. LOL

Regina Carlysle said...

Hm. Speaking of Spongebob...can anyone sing all the words of Sandy's Texas song from Spongebob? Damn, I still know it by heart.

Meg Allison said...

My favorite: The Campfire Song Song. LOL!

You know you're a mom when you find yourself cutting your dh's meat into bite-sized pieces.

Anne Rainey said...

Molli--we quote lines from Nemo STILL LOL

Mary--And even when you think you've got a handle on it, WAM, they throw you for a loop and you're right back to square one. LOL

Anne Rainey said...

Wendi--My youngest loves action adventure type movies, so we've seen the Jurrasic Parks, Transformers, and some of the older ones like The Transporter movies. Recently her and I watch Death Race and loved it so much we bought the DVD. LOL

And yes, Spongebob. That laugh of his is enough to get on my very last nerve though. LOL

Anne Rainey said...

Connie--VERY good idea! They'd be lost without their Guitar Hero and Harvest Moon games. LOL

Meg--I scolded him like he was one of my kids once. This was years ago. He gave me this look like I was just a little nuts. LOL
