Do you remember those old Baby Blues strips that read "It's Apparent You're a Parent if....." and then they'd go on to fill in some ridiculously funny thing that could only happen to a parent :) Well, every now and then, I feel compelled to share my own list with you. These are real life things that cause Joel and I to look at each other and say "It's Apparent You're a Parent if....."

  • You go to crawl in to bed at night and you knock your foot on a toy fire truck hiding under the covers.

  • You go to pour yourself a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats and suddenly realize that the Honey Bunches of Oats bag has been replaced with the Corn Flakes bag. How or why, nobody knows....

  • You walk around with blue play dough stuck to the bottom of your sock all day. Or worse yet, a sticker stuck to your back-side.

  • You go to take a sip of your water and find an orange slice floating around in it. At this point, don't ask questions, just get a clean cup!

  • You hear frantic crys for help and find a mischievous two year old hanging from the top of his bedroom door, as stuck as can be. And no, this is not the first time this has happened.

  • You have to share sips of your flavored coffee with at least three other little people. And yes, you still drink it after that, slober and all.

  • You refer to tasty food as 'yummy' and say 'bye-bye' when you hang up the phone.

Have any funny ones to add?

How about when you wake up in the middle of the night and nearly jump out of your skin because your little three year old boy is staring at you. After asking why he simply responds "I'm watching you sleeping!"

you know you are a parent...

when it would mean more to you to discover a "sure-fire" method to teach potty training, than to cure the common cold.

when you ponder if the "two tans" card at the beginning of Candy Land means you can take the bridge and then another tan space of do you have to skip the bridge and stay straight

when you pray for vaccines that could be swallowed or inhaled

when "good babysitter" sounds better than "gold bullion"
