You know you're a Mom when...

  • Any sentence with the words "temperature" or "degrees" in it automatically makes you think of fevers instead of weather.
  • The only thing you want to say to the young studly lifeguard is "stop twirling that thing before you poke someone's eye out!"
  • A stranger in your immediate vicinity 1) sneezes 2) cuts their finger 3) gets dirty or 4) has a clothing emergency. Without even thinking you reach into your purse and hand over a 1) tissue 2) a bandaid 3) a wet wipe or hand sanitizer and 4) a safety pin.
  • You also carry snacks in your purse. And crayons. And paper. All in multiples based on the number of children you have.
  • You know the locations of all the public bathrooms within a 50 mile radius of your house.
  • You know the guy who makes smoothies at the local Dunkin Donuts by name. And he knows you and your kids and who likes strawberry and who likes mango.
