You Know You Live With Kids When...

You pull back the blankets at midnight to go to bed and find on your pillow, all tucked in, a Lego Star Wars Princess.

You finally find the remote in the refrigerator and realize it won't work because a 2 year old programed it, so you give up and walk to the TV and use your finger to change the channel.

Your ears become finely tuned to the sound of a chair sliding across the kitchen.

You flush a toilet every time you walk past a bathroom.

You repeat many times a day what can and cannot be flushed.

Your garage contains a toy box/food storage container/garbage can on tires.

Instead of chanting "Ohm, Ohm", you chant, "No touching please, Inside voices, Please and eventually just No, No, No".

You find ketchup in places you never thought to look for it in.

Your main beverage has enough caffeine in it to fuel a pro football team.

Your fun reading includes lift-the-flap books and touch-and-feels.

You find 6 pairs of shoes in your bedroom that aren't yours.

You have things like laundry and housework listed as hobby activities.

You spend more time in your car than on your sofa.

You spend more dollars on sports and lessons and activities than on personal care like hair cuts or new clothing.
