25 Signs That You’re a Mum! The, “Yep, this is Motherhood” Moments


25 clear signs you're a mum


Here are my 25 signs that you’re a mum! The moments where I think, “Yep, this is motherhood alright!”  See how many you can relate to;


1. You now leave the door open when you have a pee because you’ve become accustomed to peeing with an audience anyway

2. You wipe up poop as effortlessly and boke free as you used to wipe up spills

3. You do more in the 10 minutes before bedtime than most people do all day

4. Happy hour is now the hour before the kids bedtime

5. It feels like a full-time job and you get paid in hugs

6. Leaving the house alone feels like a holiday and like you’re missing an arm all at the same time

7. Paw Patrol has been on repeat for the last 3 hours. They’ve been at nursery for the last 2 and a half

8. The make up, lip balm and hairbrush in your bag has now been replaced with nappies, wipes, dummies and a sippy cup

9. You’ve mastered the art of shampooing, conditioning, exfoliating, shaving, moisturising and blow drying  while checking Facebook and Instagram and drinking the last of your coffee all in under 5 minutes

10. Messy hair, leggings, bare face, don’t care. Nursery run in pyjama bottoms, really don’t care

11. You’re happy, sad, laughing, crying, excited, stressed, proud and frustrated all at the same time

12. Your house resembles a car boot sale but you’ve made peace with the fact it’ll stay that way until they move out in 20 years

13. You’ve swore and cried at the pain of standing on Lego and other stray toys

14. You feel bad about over sharing baby photos on Facebook but can’t stop doing it

15. You’re so tired you can sleep through a thunder storm but wake up at the slightest sound of a baby cry

16. You’d rather go to sleep than have sex

17. You’d rather go to sleep than go to the pub

18. You’d rather go to sleep than do anything

19. Being in the car, sometimes for hours at a time driving kids around but going absolutely nowhere

20. You have no clue who is in the top 10 of the charts but you know all the words to Paw Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Fireman Sam, Bob the Builder, Shimmer and Shine and Nella the Princess Knight

21. Having an uninterrupted bubble bath feels like a day at a spa

22. You eat chocolate with your head hiding in the cupboard and can open the wrapper without making a single sound

23. You hide all traces of sweetie wrappers because you know it’ll cause an epic tantrum if you get caught

24. You’ve eaten and replaced the kids Easter eggs and Christmas selection boxes

25. I just realised those last 3 might just be me
