You know that you're a mum when ...

Ten things that remind me that I’m a mum. This post is inspired by this post from Christine Coppa.

You know that you’re a mum when :

1 Every room in the house has at least one toy in it and also your car, back and front yard.

2 The tv is mostly on on childrens programmes.

3 You’re constantly picking up stuff from the floor and wiping off freshly made drawings from the wall. (oh no, they found a crayon or marker again !)

4 Your shopping list contains at least three items that are especially for kids.

5 You’re often interrupted from whatever you are doing by a child calling you; mummy.

6 You come back from the sales in town with mostly kids items.

7 You can often find a diaper in your handbag and sometimes even a toy.

8 You only get to eat half of your mugshot because you have to share it with two of your kids. (Luckily they have smaller mouths and so they are getting less on a spoon.)

9 You are excited about pink tutu’s, finding a hello kitty dvd on sale in the shop and scoring Peppa Pig shoes in 'almost new' condition on the carboot sale.

10 Your lipsticks finish far more quickly than they should. ( the girls have borrowed your makeup again and your lipstick is all gone)

 A wall in the hall last week after I scrubbed most of the paint in beautiful colours from the wall ( I was too shocked to take a picture before this but it was one of their best works so far) There must be a future artist living in this house. (or maybe two)

What are the things that remind you that you’re a mum ?

I’d love to hear from you.

I would say
1. Not being able to sleep cause your 3 year keeps waking you up at night

2. When all I shop for is kids things and nothing for me

3. When you sit down to enjoy your cup of coffee but didn't get to sip it cause you hear mommy

4. Your eating and your kids say what is that can I have some there goes what you crave for

5. When your driving and you no longer listen to your favorite radio station cause all you hear is a sing along DVD playing behind you

6. When you need to use the potty and you hear I need to go potty now..and you let them go first

7. When your tv shows are now the Disney channel nick and PBS

Great Post Idea:
1. Toys in my purse is a top on my list...batman, barbie, random pink things...
2. Definitely trying to by something for myself without coming home with tons of Kiddie stuff instead
3. Playing 'clean up' in the house at least 5 times a day
4. Having my dinner be a combination of left overs from the Kiddies plates
5. Hearing myself say stuff to my Kiddies and thinking "goodness I sound just like my mother"

1. when you give up cleaning because what you've just cleaned is already dirty.

2. Locking the door to the bathroom before someone charges in.

3. when bedtime is stressful.

4. You don't get more than 3 hours of sleep at night.

5. Vomit and poop do not disgust you.

Thanks for this awesome post, and for linking up with us at Mommy Monday! Love the lists!

Wow this list is definitely something I can relate to in some ways but also one I have a feeling I will be looking forward to! I'm a first time mom to a 16 month old so yes, you probably can imagine what I'll be experiencing over the next few years. For me, so far, I think it's repeating the same commands everyday:

"stop that"
"don't touch that"
"close the door"
"give my kisses"
"no hitting"
"no biting"

You get the point! LOL! Also constantly putting things back because someone is always moving things or trying to touch something! :) Thanks for linking up with us on the Mommy Monday Hop. Following you now blog lovin'. Here is my new blog you can follow me on:

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Little people

It's Five minute friday. And I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for another session of five minute writing.

 Today we are writing about ; Imagine


 I love having kids. I love how they can surprise you by using certain words or doing certain things of which you were not aware that they could say them or do them. I love how clever they are.
I love to take care of them and to see them grow in to the people they are supposed to be one day. Now they are little people, my little people. A wish fulfilled, a blessing from God and I can’t imagine how life would be without them.
I can’t imagine a life without tiny arms that wrap themselves around you and say ‘I love you mummy’, even though they are only two. I can’t imagine a house without toys , the buggy with dollies in the corridor, the little wooden bike in the living room, the forgotten stuffed animals behind the sofa.
Though I sometimes wish that it was easier, that they made less mess, I surely can’t imagine life without them.
