3. You have time to shave only one leg at a time.

4. You hide in the bathroom to be alone.

5. Your child throws up and you catch it.

6. Someone else's kid throws up at a party and you keep eating.

7. You consider finger paint to be a controlled substance.

8. You mastered the art of placing food on a plate without anything

9. Your child insists that you read "Once Upon a Potty" out loud in

16. You obsess when your child clings to you upon parting during his
first month at school, then obsess when he skips in without
looking back the second month.

17. You can't bear to give away baby clothes -- it's so final.

18. You hear your mother's voice coming out of your mouth when
you say, "Not in your good clothes."

19. You stop criticizing the way your mother raised you.

20. You read that the average 5-year-old asks 437 questions a day and
feel proud that your kid is "above average."

21. You say at least once a day, "I'm not cut out for this job," but you
know you wouldn't trade it for anything.
