You automatically double-knot everything you tie.

You find yourself humming the Tweenies song as you do the dishes.

You hear a baby cry in the supermarket, and start to gently sway back and forth, back and forth, even though your children are at school!

You actually start to like the smell of strained carrots mixed with apple sauce.

You weep through the scene in Dumbo when his mum is taken away, not to mention what Bambi does to you.

You get soooo into crafts you contemplate writing a book called 101 Fun Crafts to do with Lint and Eggshells.

You spend half an hour searching for your sunglasses only to have your teenager say, "Mum, why don't you wear the ones you pushed up on your head?"

You are out for a nice romantic meal with your husband, enjoying some real adult conversation, when suddenly you realise that you've reached over and started to cut up his steak!



But hey! that's what mums do best.
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

I still grab whoever I am next to at traffic lights hand to cross the road, even though my sons are 25 and 30

I have had some funny looks [:D][:D]

I knew i was really a mum when my daughter threw up on me and i was upset that she had gotten messy and never even noticed that i was too! As long as she was well and pretty was all that mattered.

I love being a mummy!

My daughter is still referred to as 'the child' and she's 22!

Have to say now though that screaming babies and kids in the supermarket do my head in!

Can't remember the last time I saw the stepgrandkids!

Julie I agree being a Nana is the icing on the cake, much more fun. All the hugs without the responsibility.

I have 5 grandchildren and will have another 2 by Christmas and they're all very special to me, the eldest granddaughter and I are really close and if I had my way she'd be living with me!
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.
