You Know You Are a Mommy of Many When...

So, my very dear friend, Amanda, has a little bloggy bit she calls "You Know You Are The Mother Of Boys When..." that I just think it is too fun so I thought I'd introduce a little spin off here on my blog.

You know you are a mommy of many when:

  • In order to conserve hot water and keep the hot water tank from running out, each person in the house is scheduled a specific time of day that they can bathe.

  • Assigned seating at the dinner table, in the car and on the couches in the living area is a normal aspect of your day-to-day operations.

  • You refer to everyday life as "day-to-day operations".

  • You have more than one child with the same nickname.
  • Dinner at a drive-thru window costs you more than a full tank of gas.

  • You are unloading the kiddos from your family vehicle and people stop and watch to see how many more will jump out.

  • Two of your children get into an argument and when you can't figure out which one is fibbing, you send them into another room to "get their story straight" reminding them that whoever is at fault will be punished. When they return, they have both come to the conclusion that it was the child who was sitting beside you on the couch the whole time that was responsible for starting the fight.

  • Deep down inside you are proud of your two children for being able to come up with something so brilliant in order to keep one another out of trouble.

  • You go to work in order to "have some me time".

  • You return home from work and receive so many "welcome home hugs" that it takes you nearly 10 minutes just to take your shoes off!

How sweet to be mentioned!!! I couldn't help but laugh at your many adventures being a mother of many. I love seeing that I am not the only mother who has craziness running throughout the house.
