10 Signs You're Ready for Another Baby

  1. You have a Pinterest board titled, “My imaginary baby.” It's your only Pinterest board.
  2. You sway from side to side when you see a random infant in the grocery store.
  3. You refuse to invest in family portraits ... just in case.
  4. You volunteer to throw baby showers for friends you barely know.
  5. You excitedly found the perfect summer beach bag ... only to realize it was, in fact, a diaper bag.
  6. You recently bought a six-pack of ballerina baby socks because they were on sale and you just couldn’t pass them up.
  7. You have a pack of infant diapers in the bottom of your bathroom drawer, and it kills you that you didn’t time the sizing correctly.
  8. You get annoyed when an acquaintance names her baby one of the 10 names you once considered for your children.
  9. You have some spare time, money, and/or energy on your hands and just can't figure out how else to use it.
  10. You’re holding a positive pregnancy test.

WHAT!? Who does this stuff. I thought it would be like: Your first baby is potty trained and or sleeps through the night.. this makes no sense.

This should be titled 10 Signs That It's Time to Check Yourself Into a Mental Hospital. What a weird freaking list.

I'm pretty sure this is tongue-in-cheek and more about the ridiculous "baby crazy" thoughts all Moms have when their babies are growing up. I am going through it right now. "Want to hold a stranger's newborn" would be #1 on my list. "Random crying spells at the thought of my kid going into kindergarten" would be #2 and "Miss the smell of Dreft" #3.

My list would include things like

-you can finally fit into your pre-pregnancy jeans

-you can sneeze without peeing

-youve been diaper free household for one glorious week

-you dont have the urge to hurt your husband/boyfriend anymore when thinking back to your delivery

-your older child has succesfully un-baby proofed the entire house

Etc
