You are so accustomed to bathing with little toys in your tub that you rarely notice them anymore.

You no longer grab a Kleenex before wiping someone's snotty nose.

You can quote every song Barney ever sang, but can't name a single rock star who made it big after the birth of your child.

You have phone conversations that are consistently interrupted by someone desperate for a snack.

You can name every playground in a 30 mile radius without batting an eye.

You wear peanut butter smudges on your clothes as the newest Fall accessory .

You realize your single girlfriend that you've invited for dinner is staring at you because you've just cut her chicken into bazillions of little pieces out of habit.

You catch yourself threatening to put your husband in time out for leaving his shoes on the living room floor.

You can smell poop from a mile away and identify the culprit in 10 seconds flat.

You wouldn't trade any of the above for a million dollars!

Have a great weekend, friends.

I'm here to tell you that one never changes. My kids are 16, 13, 10, 8, & 7. All old enough to get their own snacks, yet they STILL interrupt my phone conversations to ask for the forbidden my chocolate.

I don't think it stops till they move out, but then the grandkids come over...

I love this picture - absolutely precious! I have three girls and the phone thing - UGH - the phone thing - it is either a snack, a tantrum, or a potty break :)

I love the constant chattering and noise though - it so blesses my heart! You are such a precious mommy - Sunshine

Such a sweet picture!

Thanks so much for the reflux info. I appreciate it. I will look into having the medicine compounded--what a great idea. I'd love to avoid the unnecessary additives.

BTW, is the compounded medicine in liquid form? That would be so much easier!

Thanks again for your help.

Beautiful picture.

You know your a mom when - You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend to call you, and you run around the house madly, following the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the laundry basket.

And my favorite ..

Spit is your number one cleaning agent.
