Mighty Mom Monday: “You Might Be A Mommy…”

Mighty Mom (with a nod to Jeff Foxworthy) would like to encourage you today with this tribute to Extraordinary Moms everywhere. Sometimes knowing you’ve got company in the ol’ boat makes it that much easier to pull. Thanks, Sarah!

If you have to make an intentional effort to take a shower at least every 48 hours … you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you go out for a dinner alone with your husband, hear a kid scream and have to look over just to make sure it isn’t one of yours … you MIGHT be a Mommy.
If you no longer put “laundry” on your to-do list because by the time you get it folded, the hamper is full again … you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you’ve ever been so tired you turn off the hot water in your attempt to warm up the shower … you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you’ve ever written your shopping list in crayon … you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If you’ve worked hard to change all your swear words to repeatable phrases such as “God Bless America!” … you MIGHT be a Mommy.

If this is your idea of multi-tasking …
Yes, you MIGHT be a Mommy. And one more …
If you can come up with more than two potential reasons for a child’s “emergency bath” … you MIGHT be a Mommy. AND …
(This one’s for my wonderful husband:)

If you’ve ever been awakened from much-needed sleep by the sounds of an emergency bath…you MIGHT be a Daddy!

    Great post, Sarah. 🙂
