You know you’re the mom of a toddler when…

…you fall asleep with Disney Silly Songs running through your head.

…you take a bite of ice cream, find a gummy bear in it, spit it out, and give it to your kid.

…you carry baby wipes in your purse, even if your child is potty-trained. (They are so useful!)

…you can sing the songs from Dora the Explorer and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but don’t recognize a single song on American Idol.

…you plan to meet your friends for a play date instead of coffee.

…you can recite Good Night Moon, among other books.

…you speak of yourself in the third person (as “Mommy”)constantly – sometimes even when you’re with adults.

…the last movie you saw in the theatre was rated G.

…you have a potty in your bathroom (perhaps even a singing one).

…most of your dishes are plastic.

…your pantry is stocked with graham crackers, fruit snacks, granola bars, and goldfish.

…you’ve got sing-a-long CDs in your car.

…you can name all the characters in Toy Story.

…you plan your day in terms of naptimes and bedtimes.

…your bathtub has more toys in it than loofahs and shampoo bottles.

…you feel like your life is completely out of control but love your kids to pieces!
