You know you're a parent when...

You have detailed concerned conversations about poo without giggling.

You wake up in the middle of the night, change the baby, re wrap the baby, feed the baby and have absolutely no recollection of doing any of it.

You put on three clean shirts before getting out the door to work.

You no longer question what the hot liquid streaming onto you might be.

Your arm muscles are no longer just sore from going to the gym.

You find yourself breastfeeding while shopping at a scrap booking store.

You think that saliva and your thumb is an acceptable substitute for soap and water.

Bonus: You use your saliva and thumb on your partner's dirty face now. (You are just able to stop from doing this to your boss.)

You have conversations with adults while rocking back and forth, and you aren't holding a baby.

Your friends no longer ask how you are doing, just about the baby.

You go to rock your baby to sleep and fall asleep first.

Bonus: You know you're a parent when (in Darwin)...

Your baby has its own stubby holder for its bottle.

Your baby is 'dressed' to go out in only a singlet and nappy...singlet if it's a 'nice' place that is.

You and your baby's skin is so sweaty that you have to peel apart after a feed, like Velcro.

And finally - An empty can of light beer is a suitable toy for a's just light beer after all.
