The Dreaded Canines...

With Elon getting his canine teeth and me barely sleeping a wink last night, I needed a little encouragement this morning. Boy, he does not handle pain well!

The following taken from Chicken Soup For The Soul:
You Know You're a Mom When...
You have signed a check with a crayon.
You find Goldfish crackers in the glove box of your car.
You wipe other kids' noses.
You have accidentally brushed your teeth with Desitin.
You have caught spit-up in your hand.
You have finally paid for all of your groceries and are heading out of the doors when you realize one of your kids has lost a shoe somewhere in the store. (or in my case, a pacifier too.)
You let your baby sit in his dirty diaper until Oprah is over.
You silently curse people if they call during naptime.
You consider the person who invented the Sippy Cup a genius.
You consider it a major triumph if you shower by noon.
You justify every excessive crying spell with teething.

You pick up the phone and call your mother when your baby rolls over for the first time.
You cry at Johnson & Johnson commercials.
You have considered trading your whole life savings for just one good night of sleep.
You see your parents in a whole new light.
You consider parenting to be the best job in the world.
