The dictionary defines mom as a person’s mother. But, I feel like that doesn’t quite do the whole mom thing justice. And because it’s Friday, and because most of us are beginning summer break, I thought it would be a good time for us all to redefine being a mom – and laugh.

You might be a mom when – you get four uninterrupted hours of sleep and feel like a BOSS
Let’s face it – those early newborn days when sleeping for twenty-minute intervals is your life for days on end make a few hours of sleep seem like an eternity. They literally make you feel like a new person. Which is sad because four hours of sleep is not nearly enough, am I right?
