Happy Mother's Day!

You know you're a mom when...

You count the sprinkles on each kid's cupcake to make sure they're equal.
You have time to shave only one leg at a time....if you have time to shave at all.
You child throws up, and you catch it...sometimes down your shirt.
You consider markers and finger paints to be controlled substances.
You ban toy weapons, while your child turns every stick in the yard into a gun, sword, light saber, or bow and arrow.
You get choked up at ads for charities for sick children.
You fast-forward through all the scary scenes in Disney movies.
You know what "spit and a promise" means when cleaning a child's face.
You have signed a check with a crayon.
You can recite a child's book from memory.
You arrange your travel itinerary based on McDonald's Playland locations.
You have your pediatrician's phone number memorized.
You know more lyrics to kid songs than to current music.
You've had a couple days of breakfast for every meal.
You long for time by yourself, but when you get it you wish the kids were with you.
You say at least once a day, "I'm not qualified for this job", but you know you wouldn't trade it for anything in the world...

Thanks, Mom! I love you!
