You're a mom now! Becoming a mom for the first time is such an exciting experience and definitely one of the happiest stages in life. It is something you will never experience again. And, to be honest, you are not so sure you want to. Being a mom is not a glamorous job, especially when it's your first time. Mommy-hood offers up some of the most amazing life changes; along with a few you'd rather not admit to.
Well, as long as it belongs to your baby. Gone are the days of being grossed out. You don't have that luxury (not that your baby could ever be gross!).
2. You've logged the bowel movements of another human
You have an entire notebook and/or spreadsheet dedicated to the time, date and size of your baby's bowel movements.
3. You don't think twice about smelling a butt
Someone has to do it.
4. Snot is your best accessory
Your outfit isn't complete without a little snot on your sleeve. And, when it's an extra special occasion, a little spaghetti sauce can also be found.
5. You've forgotten how to speak "adult"
What? Doesn't everyone know baby talk? "Potty, din-din, and ouchy" spoken in a high-pitched voice is a universal language.
6. Your breasts are different sizes
You can expect more milk from the larger boob, and you can even stuff your bra, but there is no hiding it.
7. You've leaked breast milk all over your shirt
There is nothing quite like the embarrassment of walking around with wet spots, perfectly placed on each boob.
8. You don't carry a purse
Fashionable handbags are just a fond memory. Diaper bags are all the rage in mommy-hood. In fact, half the time you don't even remember to put your wallet in it. You're too preoccupied trying to fit your entire house in the bag.
Being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened. Perhaps you wouldn't mind getting rid of some of the tell-tale signs though. Believe it or not, one day you will smile remembering the days of walking around with vomit in your hair.
