You know when you are a mommy when

Motherhood changes you like no other status. It suddenly makes you grow up and responsible.

You know you are a mommy when :

  • You start having a bath in two minutes 
  • A good night’s rest means one hour of deeeeeep sleep
  • You can gobble your food in two minutes
  • You can answer the phone, change the nappy and look for the car keys at the same time
  • You start singing out instructions to everyone
  • You start dandling the bag of groceries in your arm
  • You can’t sit on a chair without grabbing a cushion on your lap
  • You can’t remember the name of your favourite actor. In fact you can’t remember the name of anything at all
  • You actually feel affronted when someone calls your little one a cute little monkey
  • You give vague answers like anytime when someone asks when they can come and visit 
  • You give evasive answers when someone invites you out
  • You start talking to strangers who have babies
  • You miss your own child when you see another child
  • You wonder if the person who touched your baby has washed his hands
  • Your stilettos and high heels are relegated to the back of your shoe cupboard
  • You exchange your smart trendy clutch for a big bulky carry all
  • You call restaurants before hand and check if infants are allowed entry
  • You just worry and worry and worry


A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!
