You know you're a mom of two when...
... you can tell who has a poopy diaper based on the smell because your nose is so finely tuned as to what goes in and comes out of your children's bodies that the subtle differences gives them away.
... you clean several ounces of just-expressed breast milk off the couch after your 16 month old flails the bottle about, with a damp burp cloth, and de-stress with a hand full of mini marshmallows.
... your second child is routinely nested in her Bumbo with toys and Christmas ornaments from the bottom 2/3s of the tree (the bottom 1/3 is not even decorated...) and you just leave them there until her nap is over.
... 8 days post-partum you haven't even cooked a meal yet (thank you friends!!).
... two loads of dishes have been done in those same 8 days.
... you finally swept the floor for the first time since coming home from the hospital 6 days ago. Mopping is almost laughable.
... you spend an hour looking for the dirty diaper that is making your house smell. Is it from the older kid? Is it from the infant? Maybe it doesn't exist. Vacuuming didn't help. Febreeze didn't help. In the end you end up thinking, what if it's YOU who actually smells like a dirty diaper?!
... your first born's hands just entered the fish bowl for the first time causing the dining room chairs to be upturned on the table. So much for using furniture as furniture.
...but at least the fish is still alive!
However, the Christmas tree IS up the day after Thanksgiving. You can see where my priorities are.
