You know you're a mommy when...

You know you're a mommy when...you, a right-handed woman of 24 years, suddenly become ambidextrous and can perform a myriad of tasks with your left hand, including eating soup.

You know you're a mommy when...you take your child to the zoo and carry your baby while pushing the empty stroller.

You know you're a mommy when...you'll put off going to the bathroom or other pressing personal needs because your baby just fell asleep on your shoulder and you refuse to lose such a precious moment.

You know you're a mommy when...you, a woman with a ridiculously easy gag reflex, get baby poop on your hand and you don't even think its gross.

You know you're a mommy when...you learn how to sneeze with complete silence so as not to wake your sleeping child.

You know you're a mommy when...you can go an entire day without food and not even notice because you're worried about why your daughter isn't eating.

You know you're a mommy when...you, a recognized shopaholic and addict of clothes/shoes/purses, get more excited about shopping for your daughter and even spend your own birthday money on her.

You know you're a mommy when...you love more than you ever imagined possible.

Any mommies out there have any more "you know whens" to add? =)

You know you're a mommie when...your teenaged kids are your best friends and the people you want to hang out with the most.

You know you are a mommy when you spend a whole day making a special birthday cake around the specific character/theme your child loves.

Thanks for sharing your pics. Cute daughter and husband!

Aww, that's so adorable! Babies change everything.

You know you're a mommy when you're willing to sacrifice your personal goals to put what your kids need first.

You know you're a mommy when...the lights go out at your job and they send you home really early, but you go back to your sunnny and dry part of town and pick up the baby from school, just to hang out.

these are precious! You know you're a mommy when you have kid show theme songs running through your head night and day and sing them loud and proud to your little one, no matter who else is listening!
