It’s a game; join in!
You know you’re pregnant when… you cry for at least ten minutes because someone at work ate the last doughnut without offering it to you first (even though you’ve had 2 already that day)!
You know you’re a parent when… you find yourself saying “Wow, you’re such a good pooper!” (I heard my husband tell Addie this over the baby monitor yesterday, lol.)

Yup! Or when your 6th month old poops ALOT in his diaper then proceeds to play with it. (This happened to me like twice!)
Someone yells mom in a store and you automatically look!
You are sad when you kid goes up a diaper size because that means less diapers in the bag for more money.
You can’t manage to go through a whole day of work without having at least 5 mind blanks or totally forgetting something very important. But if anyone should ask you to sing the tune to Spongebob or the Backyardagins, you can sing that back to them like you wrote it!
Oh I could go on and on!!!

@Mrs. Spring: Oh man, I feel you on the donuts!
Last night I dreamt that I really wanted chocolate munchkins from Dunkin Donuts but everywhere I looked to get them, the lines were too long, and that really made me lose it… which led to me waking up at 5 AM in tears because I really wanted my donuts! I woke my husband up (told him “NO” when he offered me a feel-better hug), and demanded that he pass over his iphone so I could look up when the nearest Dunkin Donuts opened. When it didn’t say on the website or their answering machine, I cried again. Husband re-possessed the iphone, found that they opened at 6, and went out and got me donuts. (I’m even skipping over a few other parts in which I did/said crazy things)
I could never have imagined that way that being hungry would drive me to new depths of crazy while pregnant.

You know you’re a parent when:
-you find yourself tying your own shoes in double knots
-you realize you are serving the person next to you at the table in a Chinese restaurant
(actually happened to me- the lady asked if was going to cut her meat too!)

You know you’re pregnant when you are peeing every 30 minutes, even if you haven’t drinken anything in the last hour.
You know you are a parent when you wake up 5 times in the middle of the night 5 to a screaming baby, but still manage to wake up in the monring feeling more blessed than any other time in your life prior to giving birth.

You know you’re a parent when you hear a kid/baby crying and you stop in your tracks to listen to make sure its not yours. I’ve done this on many occassions even when I KNOW my kids aren’t even with me. I also do this when they’re in a different room from me at home and one of them starts crying. I can tell who it is and the level of their pain in mere seconds. Depending on the level I then tell them to either shake it off, come here or run to their aid. It’s a gift 🙂
You know you’re a parent when you can pick up poop, pee or vomit with your bare hands and not even dry heeve.
You know you’re a parent when at the end of a long day after you’ve had the worse day at work you could ever imagine, walk through the door and have it all melted away when you’re kid comes up to you says hi mom, I missed you. Its like they can immediately sense my mood and turn it around in minutes. I love my babies.

You wake up in the middle of the night STARVING and you just might have to get out of your warm bed to walk over to the cold kitchen to eat a sandwich! LOL

You know you’re pregnant when:
You make a pit stop to Taco Bell on your way home because you HAVE to HAVE a chicken quesadilla because it’s the only thing that sounds good to you, and then inhale it in your car before heading into the house to have dinner.
You cry over the end of the movie Cool Runnings (the part where they carry their bobsled across the finishline)…seriously? WTF is wrong with me? 🙂

You know your a parent when you find yourself saying “he only tells me after he pooped” or “or please don’t pee on the floor and by the way where’s you pants?”

These are great!
You know you’re pregnant when you have an emergency stash of food in the car in case, god forbid, you get stuck in traffic and it takes 15 minutes to get home instead of 10.
Also, I’m 5 months post-partum, and I still cry super easy (Guilianna and Bill commercials, anyone?). I think those hormones stick around for a while. 😉

@Mrs. Spring: You should see the glovebox in my car, lol!
And yes, Guiliana and Bill…I cry like a baby, I feel so bad for them!

Good one, Mr. Bee! Although we actually got a babysitter for the new Harry Potter premier.

When you check your blouse every two minutes to see if your nipples leaked.
When other people have to point out to you the spitup on your shoulder.
When you do laundry everyday and STILL end up having to wear dirty jeans to work.
