Top Ten Ways you know you are in Mommyville by Michelle Clark

10. You refer to yourself in the third person as "Mommy" while giving a play by play of your every move. EX: "Mommy is going to put the clothes in the dryer now."

9. Songs stuck in your head are now things like, "The Wheels on the Bus", "Arky Arky", and "She'll be Comin around the Mountain".

8. Poop on your hand no longer freaks you out.

7. You lay in bed on Saturday night planning out what your kids will wear to church tomorrow instead of yourself.

6. You are the queen of multitask. You can unlatch the toddler then herd him in as you carry in the baby, your purse, shopping bag, and drink from the car while talking on your cell phone.

5. You don't need a weight loss plan because you spend so much time cutting other people's food, fetching drinks, condiments, and seconds, while feeding the baby with the other hand that your food is too cold and old to be very appetizing anyway.

4. Snot on your shirt or jeans is no cause to change clothes.

3.You don't think twice about grabbing a terd of baby poop from the bathtub with your bare hands.

2. Sitting in a dr's waiting area for hours or waiting for a table at a restaurant WITHOUT the kids, can be a mini vacation!

1. You find yourself dipping your McDonald's french fries in the baby's jar of green peas, instead of ketchup...and not even noticing until you've taken a bite!


  1. LOVE it!!!!!! How about this one:

    When you leave your house your daughter is wearing a darling dress with matching tights, shoes, and appropriate hair bow. Your son has on a matching sweater vest and argyle socks and new leather shoes while YOU are wearing a high school t-shirt from 1991 and flip flops!!

  2. Great List! So Funny!! Mommyville is a great place to be! :)

  3. That list is so gross, and yet, so true. Still laughing!

  4. The sad thing is... most of this fit me... ahhhhh

  5. I can totally identify! Good one Mich!

  6. Oh my gosh those are HYSTERICAL! I can say I've done most of them. But I wouldn't trade a second of it for anything in the world!!!!

  7. Oh my gosh that is the funnies thing I have ever true!

    Love it!!!

  8. Michelle, I love this list! Not sure I'm at the point that I pick up poop with my bare hand but with a cup, maybe that's because I only have one!!! Isn't life great???:)
