A Mom's Life Depicted in 12 Photos

wineThere are a few telltale signs that someone is a parent. You may not see them at first glance, but when you get a little closer or, ah, step inside their home, there may as well be an alarm that screams, "THIS PERSON IS A MOM OR DAD!!!"

Sometimes when I look around my house -- or my purse, or my car -- I think, "Man, how did it get like this? I used to be neatest person alive -- hey, what's a Popsicle doing in between my couch cushions?!" If you're slightly OCD (hi), it can be a bit maddening, but it really is quite funny.

I agree with ashjo I never put wine glasses in the fridge they go in the sink because they are empty, but for real the top heavy glass would surely tip, break, and create a huge mess in my fridge when my so goes to grab one of his fifty water bottles.

I've found the remote, the mouse, a jar of green sprinkles, and the phone in the space under the stairs. And the sliding glass doors always has little handprints. Love it though!

My kiddo puts everything in shoes. My husband finds all sorts of crazy things before he goes to works. Lol

LOL!  I'm glad it's not just me with random photos and things jammed into my kitchen drawers. I find all kinds of random stuff in there when I clean thost drawers out!
