You Know You're a Parent if ...

March 15, 2012 1:28 pm

You know you're a parent if....

•You keep extra underoos in your vehicles cup holder without batting an eye.
•You throw laundry in the washer and a pair of googly eyes fall in.
•You giggle when you hear the word European.
•You keep a stock of Boogies Wipes within hands reach and you DON’T giggle at the name.
•You think a Nutella sandwich, juice box, and a banana is a perfectly acceptable lunch.
•You are willing to fix a Burger King crown in the middle of the night, just to stop the crying so you can haul arse back to bed.
•Your car CD player has They Might Be Giants ABC on repeat and not Guns N Roses.
•You actually wonder if Toy Story 3 might be too scary.
•Your idea of heaven is to sleep the whole night through, in your own bed, and wake up naturally.
•Your bed has turned into a trampoline.
•You put serious thought into creating a sign to wear that says “I AM NOT A FREAKING JUNGLE GYM.”
•LEGOs are your nemesis and it is your burning ambition to destroy each colorful block you come across.
•Instead of that new car smell, your vehicle smells like old milk, no matter how much you clean it.
•The thought of wiping crap off someone else's arse doesn’t make you start gagging.
•You start looking at duct tape in a new light.
•You have more plastic cups than glass cups. In fact, you may not even remember the last time you had a bowl that doesn’t have a suction cup on the bottom.
•You kick butt at Candy Land.
•All board games you own, no matter how new, are missing at least 5 pieces
•Your vacation destination is to meet a giant mouse instead of that beach on Tahiti.
•You know what Monster Spray is and how to use it.
•You think Mr. Clean and his magic erasers are the best invention since sliced bread.
•You have stock in Johnson & Johnson company. Or you should, considering how many products of theirs you use on a daily basis.
•Your BS detection skills have soared, and you can spot a BSer within twenty paces.
•You hit scan on your car radio and claim to have magical powers, turning the stations without touching the dial.
•You’ve thought about putting googly eyes on the back of your head to scare little people into thinking you really DO have eyes there.
•Silence is NOT a good sign!
•You have stock in coffee and alcohol.
•You have had wine out of a sippy cup and thought nothing of it.
•Despite the fact you don’t own a single item of clothing without stains, you’re tired all the time, and your house will always look like a tornado went through no matter how often you try to keep it clean, you wouldn’t have it any other way
