2. You catch spit- up in your hand

3. When you get the opportunity to go grocery shopping alone, you walk the aisles slowly as if you are in a museum

4. Your shower has become the quietest 10 minutes of your day

5. You find pacifiers in your coat pockets

6. You let your baby sit in his/her dirty diaper until Oprah is over

7. You filled up your child's baby book before his/her first tooth appeared

8. You silently curse people for calling during naptime

9. You consider it a major triumph if you shower before noon

15. You speak in the third person "Mommy said no. Mommy loves you. Mommy is going to feed you."

16. You consider the person who invented the sippy cup a genius.

17. You think being a parent is the best job in the whole world

22. You watch Sueprnanny to make yourself feel better by saying "At least my kids aren't THAT bad."

23. You own every "What To Expect When Expecting" book published
