You know you’re a mum when:

Brad Pitt - Still working, apparently. Photo: Thomas Peter Schulz (click for licensing info)

  1. The attic is full of reminders of your former life – ornaments, skinny tops and books.
  2. The 10 o’clock news is on too late to watch.
  3. A night out with the one you love feels weird.
  4. The common cold fills you with terror and you are fascinated by poo.
  5. The last time you went to the cinema was to watch Brad Pitt… in 12 Monkeys.
  6. You can catch vomit in your hands without gagging.
  7. You no longer have a flat tummy and big, bouncy boobs… it’s the other way round now.
  8. You frown on smokers…
  9. …but not on people who let their kids run riot in the supermarket.
  10. You no longer see pink clothes as being representative of the continued subjugation of women in a patriarchal society… just cute.

    Oh…the sick thing?! I can’t let them do it in my hands but I have let them puke into a coat hood as we were driving home! Well done, spot on! There is a badge for you to use on the blog now if you’d like!

  2. The sick thing is so true and the boob and belly thing that made me laugh!
