You know you're a stay at home mom when....

- Cutting your toenails feels like a spa treatment

- When you drop an earring into the toilet and your don't even blink at reaching in to get it

- When you can do 6 loads of laundry, wash the dishes, nurse the baby, play with the baby, drive to and from school, Facebook AND play Words with Friends, answer lots of questions and listen to lots of stories about ninjas, Power Rangers and snow leopards, make dinner and wash the dishes again then write a blog about it all on less than 5 hours of sleep.

- One very specific look (glare) can get things done

- When you realize that it will take a LOT more than a new piece of jewelry or clothing to make you feel "put together"

- When you find a great show on Netflix that has multiple seasons you have moment of pure bliss knowing that you have something to look forward to when the kids are in bed.

- A head rub from the hubby is like morphine

- You feel so so lucky to get to do this incredibly difficult and special job

Josie, there has been a few good finds. Right now it's Burn Notice which I highly reccomend! Also Gold Rush Alaska, The last American Cowboy, Billy the Exterminator.... I love the reality/documentary type shows. =0)
