Top 10 Signs You're A Mommy Blogger

I need your help!

So I've been charged with the task of writing the Top 10 Signs You're a Mommy Blogger and I thought y'all would have some excellent insight. So have at it and I may just include your comment in my article, but take full credit for it, of course. Think Letterman Top 10. Bonus points for making fun of me!

Here's my offering to get you started:

You regularly post pictures of your offspring which may or may not include a couch randomly placed in a remote location such as a wooded area or an orchard.

Your turn!

You lovingly refer to your family by pseudonyms such as A-student, Hockey Champ, Cheer Queen and Most Likely to Fade into Obscurity

All you really wanted for Christmas was a good night sleep but you remain sleep deprived because late night blogging is the only time you really get to write about it.

When something happens you immediatly think of how to spin it into a good story so much so that you don't actually react to what is really happening.

In your last 10 haven't mentioned yourself.

Oh and if you have...its because your pregnant.

I think thats me...GAH!

Your posts contain many typos because your keyboard has been shorted out by baby urine.

Uh, once people outside your immediate family read your rants regularly.
My wee little JACK even recognizes pictures of Violet. LOL!

Ps. I'm still giggling about Ser-gay! That pronunciation had NEVER crossed my mind!

You write posts about your children's poop. And sometimes your own poop too.

You go to sitemeter more than facebook.

When you have to go from one shitty ass to the next in a matter of minutes! Also, I measure the quality of my day by how many times I get pooped, peed, or thrown-up on.

Your mention puke frequently and it is never in the context of exuberant alcohol consumption.

You actually want your child to catch nits, just so you can blog about how awful it is and advise your readers on grandma's vodka and vinegar miracle cure.

you've already had 10 cracking suggestions - mine was just thrown in for luck.

You start telling the latest story to a friend about why your kid is so awesome but your friend already knows the latest story because you blogged about it already. But your friend doesn't tell you she already knows the latest story and let's you go on about it anyways with the same level of interest as if she's never heard it... even though she has... and in the exact same detailed descriptions as it is in your blog.
