top ten ways you know you are a mother of four

10. when you offer your baby fruit, he automatically thinks you mean fruit snacks.
9. you take your kids to the store with one dressed normal, one as spiderman, one as a princess and the other in a onesie and barefoot. and you don't care.
8. you now offer them cartoons so you can go to the bathroom without someone outside the door talking to you.
7. you find yourself putting them to bed at 7 since they can't tell time yet.
6. you realize that nursing bras are more comfortable than regular ones, especially since you've worn them more than the other.
5. your maternity clothes are now your regular clothes.
4. your baby is crying and you ask your older children to put the binky in his mouth so you can finish the paper.
3. someone gives your baby a bite of cake and you laugh instead of being appalled.
2. your idea of a break is going grocery shopping with only one child.
1. you have more love in your life than you could ever have imagined!

Very true, and funny.
Someday they will all have their own homes and you will go visit them! And sometimes, like my husband and myself, you will go mow their lawns because they are working so much overtime.
Enjoy them...It will get easier as they get older and more independent, I promise!
