You know you're a mom when...

A clean house is still a messy house.
Home decorating has taken on a whole new meaning with handmade items from the kids.
You look forward to ANY time away from the kiddos.
Showers sometimes serve as that time away from the kiddos.
Leftovers have become a staple food group.
Your weekend revolves around volleyball, soccer, basketball, girl scouts, piano and trips to the park.
You can't wait for Christmas - but only because you want to see the look on your kids' faces when they open their gifts.
Insanity has become the norm. Sanity? The anomoly.
3:30am feedings don't bother you so much because they are the only ones where you and your little one can sit - in peace - without others around.
Even though you are tired, worn and beat up, you are still the happiest you have ever been because you are surrounded by love 24/7.
