Candles and luxury bubble bath have been replaced with rubber ducks and shipmate bubbles
You find yourself washing with Finding Nemo bath and shower gel
You’re thrilled that you even have the time to wash yourself with Finding Nemo bath and shower gel
Your rather expensive face cream is used as a body, wall and floor lotion
Your alarm clock becomes redundant

You find the most impossible hiding place while playing hide and seek so you can have some ‘me time’

You have no idea what’s going on in the world but you sure as heck know what’s going on In The Night Garden and in Mickey Mouse’s Clubhouse
Sleep is no longer a necessity. It’s a luxury

‘Nipping out’ becomes a two hour adventure

Your crying often drowns out the wailing of the kids
You blame Grey’s and adverts for your MEmo (mom emo)  moments

You wished you qualified for wheels on meals

Smelling like vomit beats smelling like poo

Saliva is a cleaning agent and your sleeve a tissue
