I realized that I forgot one way to know you are a parent...or at least a parent of small children. *You know the exact sound and feel of stepping on and crushing that one cheerio that you missed sweeping up.
I'm a wife, mother (twin 6 year old sons and a 4 year old daughter), graduate assistant, student (working on a PhD), and one of those people who just doesn't know when to say no when asked to do something. This is my place to share, complain, brag, explain, reflect, chuckle, etc. with the rest of humanity. Welcome to my world.
