You know you're a mum of toddlers when...

... you find a small wooden bike parked: in the bathroom /  in doorways / under the kitchen table...
... your kitchen is a delightful gallery of children's art...
... time for a long bath or shower (or dare I say it, even a trip to the loo) is a luxury...
... 8am counts as a lie-in...
... you have pasta tomato sauce hand-prints on your shirt where you sit next to the high chair...
... you get an incredible warm fuzzy feeling when your little ones snuggle up next to/on you for a story smelling sweet from the bath, all clean pyjamas and bare feet and love...
... kisses and cuddles are spontaneous, sloppy and unfettered...
... you know all the words to "The Gruffalo"...
... you know all the words to "We're all Going on a Bear Hunt"...
... you have a CD of nursery rhymes on in your car...
... the last time you and your husband went out as a couple was quite a while ago...
...you go all gooey at the sight of your children asleep...
... you think it's cute when one of your children offers you a half eaten soggy piece of toast to eat, and if you decline, they still try to put it in your mouth...
... anything valuable and/or breakable is above adult shoulder height...
... a few important documents that weren't well out of the way have got crayon "art" on them...
... your garden is full of ride-on toys... and a swing...
