You might be a new mom if...

...while driving, you catch yourself doing a running commentary of all the sights you pass even though your baby is not in the car. are the proud owner of "the mom" swimsuit (you know the one that has impossibly low-cut leg openings and does a remarkable job of both covering all your stretch marks and containing your enormous boobs)'ve gone ahead an chopped your hair off to make things easier for yourself (a la Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias) find yourself purchasing bras in a size you didn't even know existed before baby. know exactly what people are talking about when they say Robeez, Bumbo or Ergo. don't think it's unreasonable for your building's quiet hours to start at 6:30 p.m. catch yourself gently bouncing up and down in the grocery aisle before realizing your baby is at home with daddy. can't remember the last time you got to watch prime time t.v., but know exactly what's on at 3 o'clock in the morning. think it's perfectly normal to whip your boobs out in public.

...the barista at Starbucks knows to make your drink decaf even if you forget to specify. can't remember the last time you slept through the night. rate restaurants not on the quality of their food, but on the quality of their baby changing facilities. can't go a day without discussing - sometimes at length - pooh.

Got other entries to add to the a comment please!

  1. Awesome list!

    Here are a few of mine:

    - when trying on jeans, debating whether the comfortable ones that fit well are technically Mom jeans (and then of course realizing they are and leaving them in the store!)...

    - finding myself pre-emptively edging "regular" people off of the ramp corner intersection crosswalks before the light turns

    - having a soother attached somewhere to your otherwise fairly respectable outfit

    - deciding that maybe children's music isn't so bad after all? (I'm only halfway there).
