You Know you're a mom when....




Arizona Mamma, over at
hosts this fun little meme.
In her words, she writes, "As parents, we constantly find ourselves saying things that we just can't quite believe came out of our mouths, or misting up over a few scribbles on a page, or finding ourselves in situations that could only be the result of having offspring.


******************************************************************************************************



You know you're a mom when your office looks like this...



Because of this.........

I will only say that all of this took place with no fewer than four adults sitting within feet of this room.
What can I say?
He's good at what he does.
Real good.


And yes...that is dust on the desk.
Just keepin' it real here.
I will say...we aren't really "office" people.

And now I'd like to take a moment to personally thank my dear L-boy.
Thank you, dear son, for giving me...on a weekly basis...something to post for my dear friend's meme.
Hugs and smoochies, dear boy!

Heather said...

That is funny, thanks for the laugh this morning. :)

Jenilee said...

oh wow. yes, they can sure make a mess fast! :)

Carrie said...

We have that same shirt!!

Poor L-boy, he gets a bad name! Blame it on homeschooling C-boy ... that's what I did when my girl started getting into trouble. And really, when my oldest was that age, he had my undivided attention and, therefore, *couldn't* get into that kind of mischief!!

Things like this are why The Littles went to Mother's Day Out this past year!!! ;)

As far as the office, ... mine looks like that, and I don't have as cute of an excuse as you!

Love it! It's amazing how much material this little fellow gives you! Everybody with a blog needs an L-boy!

Natalie said...

What happened today? There's still no link up!

My office looks almost exactly the same. How does it happen? Not only are they good at what they do, they are FAST!!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

Wow, I've been there, but never quite that bad. Congrats for not freaking out!

Manda said...

Those photos are priceless... I think it may have something to do with being a Mom to a little man. My girls would be in the bathroom, trying on makeup and lathering up hair product (all in a mess).

Sonora said...

It is amazing how quickly they can be so sneaky and so destructive. As I always say, at least they are cute! :)

Jenn said...

Wait a second... I think that's my office! Yep it definitely is. :) Love it!

Dave said...

I think that boy did a great job cleaning up the desk! It looks way better than mine! Could you send him to me for a little desk cleaning ;)

This just warms my heart to see someone else's mess.Thanks for posting that pic, it really does an overwhelmed mom a lot of good.

And the look on that peanut's face is priceless, he is so proud of himself.

Victoria said...

Haha - this made me lol. He is so precious, even on top of the desk making a mess - thats what makes him precious! The smile on his face is priceless!

Donna said...

Bwwwhhhahah! That's a riot! Actually my office DOES look like that and not because anybody climbed up on the desk. I can't believe how messy my office is. Never used to be this way but it sure is now!

Oh boy! It's amazing what those little fingers can accomplish in such a short time!

Our desk is always full of greasy fingerprints!

Arizona Mamma said...

Julie- If only you could imagine how guilty I feel! :( Booo! Hiss! on my part. I have a link up now, and am going to put yours there.

As far as this post is concerned...you never (no matter how riddled with guilty feelings I am) fail to make me laugh. Why does it always seem the kids get away with more when there are more adults around?

Hannah said...

That is SO true!!! Love it!

Seizing My Day said...

I love mischievous little ones!! =)
