13 Ways You Know You're A Parent When . . .

Friday, October 07, 2016

- Your skin regime no longer involves expensive cleansers and will include a baby wipe somewhere along the line.

- Your child has new clothes every season and you wear the same 6 tops on repeat.

- You don't even think twice about wiping thick green snot on your sleeve if you don't have a tissue at hand in a snot emergency.

- You've attempted to catch your child's sick. 

- Your clothes are covered in food and you baby wipe them over instead of changing them before you go out.

- You can't remember the last time you sat and slowly enjoyed eating your meals.

- You buy a kingsize bed not for comfort or bumping uglies (The Walking Dead fans will understand that reference) but for the one year old that sleeps in it too.

- You celebrate getting bogies and may possibly take a picture of them to send to your spouse because you can't believe that something that big came out of your babies nose.

- You randomly burst out into kids TV theme songs. That's ok if the people around you are parents. Or children.

- It's 8am on Tuesday and you already wish it was 5pm on Friday so you can wee more than once a day without an audience.

- Your house has a line of destruction. Pegs on the kitchen floor, cutlery in the dining room and a whole toybox of toys on the living room floor. 

- You can't remember the last time you had your hair cut or any beauty treatment.

- You wouldn't change any of these things because being a parent is incredible.

  1. Ha ha, this is so true, every single one. Although I did just get my hair cut for the first time since the start of the year. The trying to catch sick thing never works, I really don't know why we try but we all do it x

  2. Yep I think I can pretty much tick all of these off the list! Wouldn't change it for the world though!

    Thank you for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again in Sunday x
