You Know You're A Mama When

1. You have no qualms about licking your finger and wiping something off of the face of your child. Or the face of the grubby kid standing in line next to you at the mall.

2. You can suddenly justify buying anything baby-related, such as three pairs of shoes to be worn when your little boy begins walking. Heaven only knows if they will fit, but they were ON CLEARANCE, which reads to a mama as IT'S A DEAL! BUY ME NOW!

3. You've suddenly sprouted eyes in the back of your head. This is useful not only for preventing the babe from base-jumping out of his high chair, but also for keeping tabs on just how many Snickers bars your husband is sneaking before dinner.

4. Your arms have become so strong and toned from carrying a baby that you could destroy an arm-wrestling match with The Rock.

5. You regularly leap around your house singing a tone-deaf version of Barbara Manatee, because your baby finds it hilarious to watch mama imitate a dancing cucumber.

6. You don't care what other people think so long as your baby is content. And if that includes imitating a vegetable, making airplane noises during dinner, or playing 6245 daily games of peekaboo, then you can die happy.
