You know you're a Mommy when...

...your lunch includes Goldfish crackers, string cheese and Teddy Grahams. ...you automatically point out bulldozers, cows, horses and "pretty colored leaves" along your commute, even when you are alone. ...your leftover food is stored in containers with Dora the Explorer or Mickey Mouse on them. ...you unconsciously remind co-workers to remember their umbrellas when they leave the office. ...you can name the latest Sandra Boynton book more easily than the latest Sandra Bullock movie. ...you have memorized the channel numbers for Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney and Discovery Kids but have to look up the numbers for A&E, ESPN, SoapNet and Discovery Health. ...you always have tissues and band-aids in your purse, but can't don't have lipstick or mascara. ...you look at the contorted sleep positions of your kids, or at a scribbled portait of yourself with a giant head and no neck, and you realize that anything you left behind in your previous life is totally meaningless.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
