You know you're a parent when ...

So, my youngest keeps getting up from the table during snack time and walking into the living room to ask questions or what-not. The rule is that you stay in your chair until you finish up and clean up your stuff.

She walks in, yet again, and I say, "Honey, if you get up again, I'm afraid I'm going to have to take away your baby for a few days."

And it takes me a minute to figure out why my husband is laughing so hard.

It's a beautiful night, and we have all the windows open. One of those times you hope the neighbors either

A: have kids or

B: are hard of hearing.

Hey C, I was thinking of you this week, wondering how it was going with the "new" kids.

I grew up in a family of five.

Tip of the day: pay attention when you're counting em.

My parents left church with five kids every Sunday. Just not always their five kids.

I've started a new homeschool meme for Mondays and I thought that you might be interested. If you want to participate, just write a post about a highlight from your past week of home learning. Then, come to my blog and sign Mr. Linky.

Apparently, I'm stuck smack in the middle of brain-dead parent-land, because I seem to be missing what's so funny.

Imagine you're standing outside my window, and you don't know I'm talking to a child ...

Of course, when you know I'm saying that to my ADOPTED child, well, the hits just keep on coming!
