I find I have so many moments where I think, “Man, I am such a mom!” So, I’ve decided to start documenting some of these thoughts as a series on my blog. I hope you find the humor in these as I did!

I now have to buy double the amount of protein bars, and not because your husband started eating them.
Although… I won’t complain…. If I can sell my Chocolate Brownie Clif Bars to my 2 year old as a “chocolate bar” – I count that as a mommy win.
#YouKnowYoureaParentWhen: Your home decor now consists of a splattering of bright red, blue, and yellow toys. Big ones. #parenting #homedecor #toys Click To Tweet
#YouKnowYoureaParentWhen: Mom is sporting the classic I-didn't-wash-my-hair-today ponytail. #parenting #momlife #bloggerstyle Click To Tweet
These days I whip my hair into a ponytail faster than you can say “ponytail, again?”
…I am sure my mom is disappointed too, because all during my teen years she
harped lovingly reminded me to fix my hair on a regular basis. Apparently when I didn’t I looked like I “fell off a turnip truck” (Has anyone ever seen a turnip truck? Do turnips ride on trucks? Do they buckle up?)
In her defense, though, I did default to a ponytail so often you’d think my hair was stuck like that. And she was right (hear that mom!?) I did look better when I wore it down.
#YouKnowYoureaParentWhen: You hide toys in your bathroom for your toddler to find, in hopes you can shower in peace. #parenting #momlife #toys Click To Tweet
In my defense though, I do actually try to hide toys that would be a treat to him. I don’t just stick a banana in my bathroom cabinet and say, “Look Drew! How fun!”
I could go on and on… So stay tuned for more!
