Nap Drive

You know you're a parent when the soothing classical music and the meandering drive home nearly puts you to sleep, even before the 2 year old in the back.

It's apparent you're a parent when you get pretty good at games like "sleeping beauty" during which the "beauty" has an awfully hard time being revived. Other versions might include "sleeping bear" or "sleeping fairy" etc. Or hide and seek wherein you have to tidy up a room at a time, searching darn near everywhere for that little lost kiddo.

It's apparent you're a parent...when you find stickers on your butt, or your hubby's. Lovely.

The Quiet

You know you're a parent when you have a healthy fear of "The Quiet" as in, the quiet that can mean and entire roll of toilet paper unraveled, or the quiet dumping of all the books off the bookshelf, or the quiet sneaking of a treat snack. etc. It's always best when the quiet is actually two siblings playing nicely together, which of course you are always bummed you interrupted (this is when a periscope would come in handy, perhaps termed a "parentscope"?) Or when your little girl is doing what she loves doing these days, plopping a book on her lap and flipping though,
even if it's upside down.

Shop Equipment

It's apparent you're a parent (and a crafty one at that), when you will go to all lengths to craft the most fun for your children and invent clever new ways to use shop equipment. Such as, shop vac = "super bubble making machine":
and bubbles galore paired with glow sticks makes for ultra fun bath time!
