You Know You're A Stay At Home Mum When..

* You know the theme tune to various children's tv shows.
I can sing 'Doc Mcstuffins', 'Peppa Pig' & 'Sofia the First' off by heart. 
And often sing them in public.
*You wear the same outfit more than once a week. Possibly more than twice. You're unsure.
* You can't pee/shower without an audience
* When someone asks "What did you do today?" You have no response. You honestly have no clue, all you know is you have barely sat down.
* Your children are asleep, and you realise you've been watching Disney Junior for half an hour
* NEVER.ENDING.LAUNDRY
* You spend so much time picking up toys you just put away.
* You feel like you've been awake forever
* It's midday and you're not dressed in normal clothes. Nor do you have make up on. But hey! At least your child is dressed!
* Your child's not dressed anymore. 
* TGIF means nothing to you
* You desperately want a long, hot bath for one
* No matter how tired you are, you always stay up later because it's your quiet time.
* You're not even sure what day, or month it is
* You get angry when the phone rings and it's naptime
But you wouldn't change it for the world.
You love your children more than anything, and this is the best job in the world. 

Have I missed any?

This is such a funny but very true post that I'll be sharing with my best friend. She is a new mom of a 2-month old baby girl. I'm sure she'll be happy to have someone relate to her experience.

Happy Saturday Sarah :)

Very very true! And I get so angry when the phone rings during nap time! Especially when I don't pick up the first time and they just. keep. calling! AAGH!

I'm so glad I came to visit your blog!

Very true! I remember those days - my little monkey is 5 years old now and I've been back to work for about 3 years, but yes....I used to say I had a "mom uniform" - usually yoga pants with a top of some sort and a sleeveless vest with zipper pockets so I didn't need a purse LOL. Visiting from Weekend Blog Hop :)

I LOVE this post! I'm so delighted I found your blog via #TheList. You made so many true & hilarious points. The quiet time at night, no privacy in the bathroom & singing cartoon theme songs in public are my favs - and apply to me too! :)

Oh very true, weetabix on your clothes is the norm and its acceptable to wash with baby wipes! #thelist

I know, the phone ringing is so annoying! I've started unplugging it at naptime! And yes, I totally clean EVERYTHING with baby wipes!

Thanks for reading xx

I had forgotten what TGIF even means it's been that long!! Great list - I too can be found singing children's theme tunes in inappropriate places - and regularly reach my destination on my own only to realise I'm still listening to the Gruffalo CD!!

Love it, thanks for linking up xx #ThelIst
