    This is great. I know I need a break when my nine month old starts fussing for a bottle, and I ask him to please get it himself because mommy’s busy.

    Here’s mine: You start throwing more tantrums and need more time outs than your toddler.

    Been there, on ALL of them! My sign that I need a time out is when I find myself getting snippy at folks for NO reason at all.

    I can’t stop laughing at your 10 – that was hysterical! Brought back so many memories. I guess I really can’t answer since mine left the nest already. Thanks for the memories – that was a nice trip!

    I certainly need a time-out – at least once a day!

    BTW, I’ve nominated you for a Versatile Blogger award over on my blog. 🙂 Love your posts!

    Great list – I can relate to them all! My telltale sign is when my furiously knitted brow seems so frozen in place that it actually starts to give me a headache!!!

    This was great! Lol! I could identify with so many of these. Thanks for posting.

    Great list! I’m not a mom but I can definitely relate to a few of those! (Found you from 31 DBBB.)

      Thank you Colleen.. even women without children need time outs too!

    Great list! Being a mom is definitely not easy

  12. Melissa (Confessions of a Dr.Mom) July 28, 2010 at 4:07 PM #

    This is a great list! yes, falling asleep while saying prayers…that is one of my tops. My other? Drinking coffee all day long in the hopes it will keep my eyes open! But instead, I just feel woozy but can’t quite fall asleep 1

    • Jeanie Cullip July 29, 2010 at 1:16 PM #

      ahhh yes, Melissa, I know the need for abusing caffeine all to well. Funny how it does not keep you up all day long but as soon as you can lay down it decides to work and keep you up!

    Mmhm…mmhm…*nod head. This is so right on! I know I need a timeout when I start talking baby talk to my husband when he comes home.

    Great post. I know I need a time out when I feel like crying over little things. That or I am shoving food down my throat quicker than I can breathe!
