You know you’re a mum when…

When I was pregnant, I signed up for all those websites that everyone suggested for useful advice and chat forums with other mums. Although I don’t read them as much, when I do, there is always a thread titled “You know you’re a mum when”. I came up with a good handful of answers to this questions!

I asked a number of the blog readers how they would finish that sentence and here is a sample of the replies:

“You’ve spent all day walking around with baby porridge on your jeans and not noticed!”

“You run towards projectile vomit instead of running away like any normal person!!”

“You moan you want a few hours off, then when you do get them, you spend the whole time talking about your baby!”

“When you stand there rocking even tho your baby is asleep in the pram or cot ๐Ÿ˜Š I do this all the time. “

“When you measure the success of your day by how many cups of hot tea you’ve had”

“Rocking crib when you partner is holding baby xx”
“You let your baby pull out every single baby wipe out of the pack just to get 5 minutes peace and quite ๐Ÿ˜‚”
“When you walk around in public humming the theme to programmes on CBeebies!”
“You go to work for peace and quiet!”
“Half 7 can’t come quick enough haha x”
Just a few of them! If you have one you’d like to share, check out the Contact page on how to get in touch.
Until next time…

  1. Ha this had me laughing love it. Personal favourites are: when you measure success by the amount of cups of tea and you let your child pull out every wipe just so you 5 minutes peace.
    These two pretty much summed up my life for at least 3 years!


  2. So guilty of rocking the pram even if baby is already asleep. It may have turned into a nervous habit. Hot tea? what is that? haha I sometimes have to reboil the kettle because some days that is as close to a hot cup of tea as I will get.
