You find yourself double knotting your thongs that tie up at the side.

Yeh the ones that have pretty ribbons that tie up in lovely bows on each side. Always hope for dh to rip them undone with his teeth but it never happens...sighs... oops or maybe noone else wears them?

You know you're a mum when you enthuse about Big Pants!

You know you're a Mum when you don't care that the big pants are inside out *and* back to front. They're clean aren't they?

You find yourself sitting there watching Maisy/Thomas the Tank Engine/Sesame Street etc etc, long after ds has wandered off to do something else.

(And you know all the characters' names from all the kids' shows, plus all the words to the theme songs.)

you cut your hair above shoulder level to stop baby throwing up in it and you never know what day it is, what you were going to do or even your name.

I agree with the smell one - your shoulder smells of baby dribble/milk posset.

You look out at your clothes line and see little clothes on it and nappies blowing in the wind.

when your house looks like toysRus after a tornado

when your clothes smell of fermenting milk - you've been peed on and you don't bother changing.

when you don't have any capital letters in your typing!
