You’re Probably Not A Mother If…


1. You post “TGIF!” on your Facebook page and have big plans for the weekend.

2. You cut yourself a piece of chocolate cake, sit down at the table, and eat it like a civilized person.

3. You reach into your purse and pull out what you intended to, on the first try.

4. You pity people who drive minivans.

5. You sleep past 7:30 AM on a Saturday.

6. You shut the bathroom door and it remains closed for the duration of your visit.

7. You can properly identify the crud on your jeans.

8. And it bothers you.

9. You’ve never had a stimulating conversation about poop.

10. You like your coffee hot, and actually drink it that way.

11. You don’t automatically clench your legs when you pee.

12. You expect people to make a fuss over your birthday.

13. You’ve never cleaned the house from top to bottom with nothing but a box of baby wipes.

14. You’ve fully caught up with your close friends via phone calls.

15. Going to the grocery store alone on a Saturday night sounds pathetic.

16. You get a paper cut and use a plain, flesh covered Band-Aid to cover it.

17. You assume that rogue raisin on the floor is actually a raisin.

18. The goal of your shower is relaxation rather than cleanliness.

19. The radio station is set to music you like listening to.

20. You take a sick day because you’re actually sick.

21. You don’t think twice about purchasing new clothes or accessories for yourself.

22. You can make it out of Target with less than ten items.

23. You come back from vacations feeling rejuvenated.

24. You complain about your mother wanting to see you too much.

25. You roll your eyes at other parents and utter the words “I’d never…”

Ha! Funny list! Non-moms, this is meant to be funny and a place for other moms to relate. Not every day for us is glorious, nor abhorrent. I’m sure the same is exactly the same for you. Stop reading so much into this. If you don’t find her particularly funny, then move on to another blog. Would you continue to watch a movie over and over again if you didn’t like it? No, you move on to someone else.

BTW: Nobody laughed when I used to tell them I was pushing a dead baby in the carriage… They asked if the baby was asleep… Really????

I’m not a mother. Trust me, it’s better that way. Anyway, I’m deep into contemplation about crud on my jeans. Do I have any? If so, do I know what it is? I’ll have to pay closer attention.

That said, crud on my jeans while shopping for shoes or a bag, I wouldn’t give a shit.

Yay! Another article to remind me I’m naive & not as much of a ‘normal’ human being because I haven’t pushed any newborns from my loins. I can relate with 99% of these things as a person who is around kids & cares for them on a daily basis. I just get so OVER people acting like I can’t ‘know true love’ or the real ‘reason to live’ because I am infertile. Sorry for the rant…but dislike that folks have to separate themselves in the ‘married’ club then the ‘mommy’ club.

Erin 3 years ago

Wow. I’m a mom and all of this sounds pretty foreign to me. I still go out on the weekends and I definitely don’t relate to most of those statements. Although, I often have crap on my clothes that is usually snot, dirt, or sticky. I try my best not to judge other parents, but I view this list as a thinly-veiled “it’s so hard being a mom” pity party. It definitely comes off as judgemental towards parents that choose to keep their friends, life, and sanity. I’m willing to bet right now you’re saying “I’d never…” about me.

    L Sandwalker 3 years ago

    No kidding. I’m not a mother but on the flip side I can relate with the majority of this list. My post below says how I felt, which summed up is that I am getting tired of relating to most things that moms relate to, but being treated like I can’t understand them because I haven’t bore my own children (infertility). I have had a strongly hand in raising over 20 children in my community. It just gets old. But, if I would just follow the advice of the person who replied to my post, I wouldn’t have a problem. I should just stay off the mommy blogs 😀

Sandy –
I AM a mom.
I still sleep until 8 on weekdays, 11am on weekends. I would die before taking my kids to Disneyland, and our meals are home cooked and gourmet, usually raw vegan. (not saying you should be a mom, just showing you how ludicrous this list is)
And moms, I do not remember growing up and having my parents play kiddie music. I play my own music. Life does not revolve around kids – or at least it didn’t use to.

    Sandy 3 years ago

    My husband and I think the same regarding life revolving around children. It seems a bit ridiculous these days and then people wonder why kids are so demanding. My parents played ABBA and The Beatles when I was little. There was no Elmo. I had to pick up my toys when I was finished playing with them. I had chores. My parents didn’t haul a suitcase of entertainment around with them for me to keep me quiet in the car (back in those days, cars had windows and you looked out and that’s what you did for an 8+ hour roadtrip).

    In any case, you sound like the sort of mother I would want to be with the exception of raw vegan meals. I like red meat, but I do eat it almost raw, so that’s kind of the same.

Sandy 3 years ago

Not a mom and I LOVE it. I sleep in until 7:45 on weekdays, my house is spotless, my meals don’t include mac and cheese, and my vacations don’t involve life-size cartoon characters. I do give you moms kudos, though, especially non-Canadian ones who only get a hiccup of a mat leave to recuperate and bond with your babies. Do all of us non-Moms a big favor and please teach your kids to read and write before they text.

LaceyKitty 3 years ago

I’m confused. I get that this is supposed to highlight the difference between moms and non moms…. but it seems irrelevent?? I am not a mom and most of these are foreign concepts… Sick day? Whats that? Privacy? Sleeping in? VACATION???? If this is how care free the lives of childless people are, God, do I know the wrong crowd! This may shock you…. (try not to spill your cold coffee when I tell you this) but child-less/child-free people can and do have full, busy, stressful, even hectic lives, brimming over with burdens, and responsibilities. Gasp. Now since Im not a mom and apparently have all this free time, and disposable income just layig around, where do I sign up for those vacations and thoughtless clothing splurges???

Oh, and by the way. I know several women who are moms and can do all these things, civilized chocolate cake and all. So word to the wise: just because you don’t know how to handle your life, don’t assume every other mother can’t either :)

    Sandy 3 years ago

    I’m not a mom and I do have a lot of free time. Way more than my sister who has kids. I think the difference is in priorities. As a mom, you kind of have to make your kids your priority because if you don’t, they grow up to be little douchebags. As a non-mom, you can prioritize your life a little differently. If you make work a priority, of course you’re not going to have a lot of free time. If you make quality time with your hubby and time for your hobbies a priority, you might not make as much money in a highly paid stressful job, but that’s the tradeoff.

    Like you, I know mothers whose homes are clean, who wear nice clothing, who eat family dinners at a table, etc. Priorities.

    If you don’t want crap on your pants, wipe it off. Don’t tell me you just don’t have the time. At least 80 of you had time to read this article and comment. Maybe a little less web surfing and complaining and a little more prioritizing?? Maybe you like things messy just so you can complain about it? That’s it, isn’t it? You have to make it look difficult so you can feel like it’s all worth it…

      andrea 3 years ago


      That’s not entirely fair to mothers, although I do agree with what you said about CF people. Choosing priorities means having to say no to certain things that I still value. I might want a clean house, but I choose quality time with my kids instead. We can’t do it all well, so some things we’ve learned to have to let go.

My girlfriend is about to adopt twins and she is going through a bit of culture shock, which is a mild way of putting it. My girlfriends and I are finding it funny that her incredibly organized world is being dumped upside down and she is realizing what the rest of us are dealing with on a daily basis. She is always calling us asking “Is this normal for…” And the resounding answer is always “Yes!” Life will never be the same and I am so happy for her. Soon she will be carrying those wipes and a package of crayons in her purse too. And the wallet? I’m sure she’ll find room for it in there somewhere.

      Because one of my friends posted this on facebook so I was curious to see what it’d say.

        Really? Seriously? Isn’t there a “i’m going to die alone and sad” blog somewhere you should be identifying with?

          Kara 3 years ago

          Isn’t there an ignorant, judgmental blog for people with superiority complexes you should be identifying with?

          Not that you would believe me, but CF people don’t die along and sad. We die happy, loved and free. Knowing we lived our lives the way we wanted to with our spouses.

          Oh? You thought CF people don’t get married because no one would love us? Well, surprise, that’s not true.

          I recommend you also visit a blog for people who can’t see past their own noses too, after you’re done with the aforementioned ignoramus’s blog. Or maybe those are just the same thing.

          Stori 3 years ago

          When did CF (I assume that means Chronic Fatigue??? Or is is Cystic Fibrosis????) get into this? At what point did this come up? At what point did anyone say anything about “CF” people not getting married because “no one would love us”???
          I will agree that Stori’s response was over the top, but really??? Throwing a label? I have several “labels” too, but I don’t make that anyone else’s problem!

          Kara 2 years ago

          “CF” means “Child Free.” As in, does not have children by choice.

    Not complaining; just simply pointing out the differences between people with kids & people without kids. Even if we do complain from time to time we have earned it, because yes we did sign up for it, but kids are hard work. “…if you all love them so much..” there is no “if” about it…

    Evalynn Rose 3 years ago

    I don’t know that it’s complaining so much as for the comic relief. Life changes when you have kids in so many ways… and even if you think you can see them coming, you can’t. You don’t understand until you go through it. Also? Could never have imagined the feeling of love and protectiveness for my little girl. I thought I’d like having kids because I always enjoyed babysitting, but it’s so much more than that…. the way I feel about my own baby.

    However, I can still appreciate and enjoy the past 3 months where I’ve been able to go to the bathroom by myself. When she gets too big for her pack n play… I’m sure it will be back to party potty time. It strikes me as funny that so many moms have the same experience because in the moment you’re like… this is kind of strange having two small eyes watch me go to the bathroom, am I doing this wrong?

    Beth, how many children do you have, and how old are they? That may be why you can still do so many of these things.

    Natalia Fernandez Perez 3 years ago

    Me too Beth & I have four & pregnant with number five. My kids are 6,4,2yrs & the baby is an 11month old nursling. I also homeschool them, so they don’t go anywhere. Not that I’d dream of sending them away.

    My husband got on me many yrs ago about these things. He then started to teach me & to teach the kids to respect that I have to eat too. I have really bad hypermises from 7weeks until one or two weeks after giving birth. I’m on zofran but I still have to eat every two hrs or I get crazy nauseated. Once I start throwing up, I cant stop, end up with an I.V. My oldest two are always asking me if I’ve eaten & trying to help me in anyway they can. Sometimes I have to eat while laying until the medication kicks in & they play with the babies for 30-45 minutes until I’m able to get up.

    I used to think I was doomed but a lot really is about just teaching kids that we’re human. The earlier we start the better and faster they grasp it.

    Also to the original post I listen to what I want. My kids enjoy my music and have no idea who bieber or any of the other bands, singers are.

    And “take a sick day because you’re actually sick”…..hahahaha, snort! Not if you’re a SAHM or a homeschool mom. Even when you’re sick taking care of your kids is not something you can pawn off.

#9… You should add. Or a stimulating conversation covered in poop. or a stimulating conversation about poop, while covered in poop.

#25… I admit I was once that person. I thought I’d never let my kids run around with dirty faces. Now dirty faces is one of those “I wish that was the only problem” things. Who the hell cares what’s on their faces, as they are playing with the toilet, the plunger, the toilet brush, getting into the trash, pulling everything out of cabinets and drawers… etc…

So true! God, we were so naive before we had kids, weren’t we?

TGIF, indeed. Yep, definitely not a mother! And for the record, I love my minivan.

    I love my minivan too! Doors open and close themselves! Who couldn’t love that?

    I am envious of minivans with our tiny cars and two kids. One day…

    FYI just because you have kids does not mean you are busier than people without kids. I don’t have kids and I am up at 5:30 every morning 7:30 would be a sleep in and waste of day.

    Sounds like the moms on this site are full of themselves assuming that only people with kids have lives and responsibilities.

I am definitely a mom then! Every one of those made me laugh and sent me on a trip down memory lane…back when I thought being “exhausted” was working a full time job and going home to make dinner…Ahhhh…the days of a full nights sleep.
