…when you look in your purse and find empty gum wrappers, stinky Hello Kitty socks, a mandarin orange, a Squinkie, a flyer from your kid’s school for an event that happened a week ago, and sand.
…when you no longer flinch at vomit.
…when you forget to look in the mirror before you leave the house.
…when Goldfish crackers and a Capri Sun are an acceptable snack… for you.
… when your car looks like it drove through a tornado… on the inside.
… when being woken up at 6 am by someone 3 feet tall is actually (sorta) sweet.
… when the sleep deprivation, lack of personal space, worry and stress is all worth it, and then some.
