You Know You're a Mom When....Got Windex?

You know your a mom when your lovely "windowed" doors look like this....

Because of this...
(no, I have no idea what sort of debris is attached to his nose..but I'm quite sure it is now deposited on that window.)

And every stainless steel appliance looks like this...

Because of this!smash2


Somebody get this kid some paper towel and windex.
He needs to start pulling his weight around here.
You know what they say....(they being my Dad!)
"No worky, No eaty"!

The pic of L-boy in the window has to be the most adorable thing ever... :) I've heard that stainless steel and kids don't mix, I only have a few more months of clean-ish refrigerator door I think :)

Windex... my bff! We moved into the house we just rented and I was elated at the huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and dining room and all the bedrooms... for about 10 seconds before I realized I need to buy stock in Clorox Greenworks for all the times I'd be obsessively cleaning. And that lasted about 30 seconds before I gave up on keeping the glass clean. ;o) But somehow, it's sorta endearing...

Don't forget the TV...that's how our TV screen looks too!

love the dark frame on your glass door. We have a similar one only lighter wood and the same fridge. gluttons for finger smudges. =0)

Sassy said...

He looked like he had fun doing it! :)

I hate stainless appliances for that very reason! When we moved I was actaully happy not to have them again! lol

Hannah said...

That is too funny! That is exactly what my doors look like too...only for some reason my daughter likes to lick them. gross!

Brianne said...

Definite signage of motherhood. :P

Carrie said...

He, he! Good thing he's so cute! You've got to thank him, really, ... for always making sure you have something extra funny to blog about! I mean, how boring would it be if your kids were perfect?! ;)

Seizing My Day said...

Love your door! (nerdish I know) my sliding door looks like that from the DOG!! =) oh my!

I am still laughing at your story from the 4th... =)

Sherri said...

I was pretty sure I had a stalker there for a minute, because you appeared to have taken pictures of MY refrigerator and glass door! Then I realized that my kids are much taller....oh, and the puppy doesn't help either. I have the noses, the paws, and the fingerprints!

Great pics!

Arizona Mamma said...

With the exception of your doors being far prettier than mine, it looks like you could just interchange them with mine. Those and the stainless appliances. I just don't even bother. Ever.

P.S. Last night this thought actually went through my head "maybe I am just done with the blog." !!!!!!!!

Tara said...

Love it!!! That is my house!!! My windows are all smudged up with his face and little fingers! And, then he adds in juice and milk too!

Liz said...

Dude, I think SS is so overrated. :)

Claudia said...

Julie - enjoy it - you will one day look at clean windows and miss the stains and stripes.. ;=)
Have a great day! Claudia

Pam said...

Were you spying in on my house? I have those windows and doors too!! :)

Laura said...

It's so nice to see someone elses windows look like mine!! :)
Love that picture of the smooshed face, way too cute!

Sonora said...

LOL!!! The picture of his face squished against the window made me laugh so hard. Yes, children are helpful.

3LittleMonkeys said...

HAHA...too cute! Love the one with his nose against the window!

Is that a new haircut I see L-Boy sporting? Very cute....but he always is anyways!

That is a lovely door!

Lisa said...

Oh.HOW.True!

lulalola.com said...

That picture is great! I think our doors look just alike, down to the last smudge!
And the stainless will work you completely to death! And what's the point of cleaning it, it'll never stay clean!

Love Letters To China said...

This post is so appropriate for the type of day I had today. I've been cleaning my house (way over due) all day today. This evening I took a look at my french doors and appliances and saw exactly the same things as you have. Lots and lots of smears from who knows what! I think I'm going to hand over some Windex and paper towels to my kids tomorrow and get them working! Your dad is a very smart man. ;-)

Natalie said...

I LOVE "no worky no eaty"...that is just fantastic and I'm stealing that to use around here!!

My glass sliders always look like that 5 seconds after I clean them...I don't know why I even bother :)

Leanne said...

LOL!!! So adorable! LOVE LOVE LOVE these photos of your little one - how CUTE!!!! (smudges and all!) Yep - you know you're a mom, for sure!

Rene' said...

I didn't notice the prints but the cool looking wooden door :)

Amy said...

I'm with everyone else...my sliding glass doors look just like that! I don't bother with it unless someone's coming over...

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

L-Boy knows there's no point in it. He's just going to lick that window again in 30 seconds!

Ellie said...

My doors and windows and fridge look like this too :) Precious post and adorable photos.

Manda said...

This was funny... one of those "Yep, I can totally relate" mommy moments.

He & Me + 3 said...

You are too funny and I love your Dad's saying. LOL Love the smashed nose picture. CUTE

The Iowa Farmer's Wife said...

Haha! That's exactly what all my stainless steel appliances look like! And my windows. Because today she ate an apple while standing on a stool looking out the window and wa-la! Apple window. Have a great time on your trip! Eat lots of ice cream! ;)

Jb said...

I suppose you have white carpets in your house too? ;)

Jill said...

So true! So funny! :)

Jami said...

I am so glad I am not the only one. My sliding glass doors are embarrassing...and I mean within an hour of washing them! LOL

Have a nice vacay!

Kate said...

My windows and appliances look the same! I don't mind...they're growing so fast that the day will come soon enough, when I long for little fingerprints everywhere...
