You Know You’re a Mom IF… 40 All-Too-Relatable Things That Prove You’re a Parent

22. You can use your keyboard, phone, iPad, but there’s a good chance your fingers will stick to it.

23. The term “minivan” has a certain je ne sais quoi.

24. You’re busier than Martha Stewart, Ryan Seacrest, and Donald Trump … all rolled into one.

25. You do more pretend cooking in a miniature kitchen than you do actual cooking in the full-sized one (and frankly, you’re not sure which tastes better).

26. You secretly wish there was some mommy competition involving your child’s trendy crafts because you’re a freakin’ whiz on the Rainbow Loom, you make a mean potholder, and you’re not so bad with a spool of gimp ahem, lanyard.

27. A dance party, songfest, or drawing competition may be impromptu … but it’s never unexpected.

28. Dealing with a monumental breakdown over the tag in a shirt, the seam on the sock, or the elastic on of a pair of undies seems totally normal.

29. You know the one rule about stuffed animals: One Can Never Have Too Many of Them!

30. Your make-believe life is way more exciting than your actual life.

31.  ANYTHING can be over-dramatized… a trip to Target feels like a Spanish soap opera.

32. There’s a Happy Meal toy in your purse.

33. If you find yourself holding a living creature that you would usually run away from screaming.

34. You have an unhealthy knowledge of the point/gem system for Temple Run, Dragonvale, Bakugan, Plants vs. Zombies, Cube Runner …

35. You bought a car based solely on how much you could fit in the trunk.

36. You’ve actually placed yourself under a tree with the feeling that, if that kiddo loses footing, you’ll at least be there to break the fall.

37. You know the pain of stepping on a Lego … and may in fact, have one imbedded somewhere in your body right now.

38. You’ve found yourself saying things like, “No, you can’t ride the dog.” and “Yes, you do have to keep your pants on in public.”

39. You’re on a first-name basis with the orderlies at the ER who provide slings, splints, casts, and those velcro boots.

40. You have a love so intense, so fierce, so all-consuming — it can only be understood by another mother.
