You Know You've Been a Stay-at-Home-Mom When...

You know you've been a stay-at-home-mom for four years when your first three weeks at a new job involve the following slips:

You tell another teacher you'll be glad to watch her duty post for a few minutes if she needs to go use the potty.
You almost call your boss "dude."
You're so excited to see adults that you walk in waving and saying "Hey!" to anyone you pass in the hallway.
The cafeteria feels like it's missing something.  You realize there are no high chairs.  
Happy Meals for dinner becomes a weekly routine because you haven't yet figured out how to work "cook dinner" into the mile-long list of things to do after work. 
Your high school students are misbehaving, and you start counting.  "One.  TWO!...  Oh, wait.  Sorry."
Your employer asks for a photograph of you to put in your file.  You don't have a single one of you without your kids.
You ask a coworker when nap-time is.

  1. I hope you have refrained from giving students and colleagues spit baths.

Your comments are valued almost as much as naptime. Thank you.
