While writing recent pieces about how you know if you're the mom of a boy or the mom of a girl, I realized there are so many indicators that separate us moms (in general) from everyone else on Earth. So here it is: You know you're a mom if ...
1. You haven't heard your actual name the entire day, but you've been beckoned relentlessly.
2. You've ever sang The Wheels on The Bus with the same enthusiasm you once sang I Will Survive.
3. Lying is always an option as in ... "I'm sorry, the game store is closed on Sunday." "I love the outfit you put together yourself." "Yes, you do sound like Beyonce when you sing." and "No, they don't give ketchup at the drive-thru."
4. You have a stain on your clothing that you would have to taste to place. What is that latte or spit up? One sec… Hmmm... Oh, it's spit up.
