You know you have a toddler when...

1) You find yourself talking to your husband and saying, "I think the man in the yellow hat has a thing for Dr Wiseman".  Curious George plot lines replace your need for romantic comedy.

2) As a veterinarian, you can relate to your clients inability to brush their pets teeth with how hard it is to corral your toddler and get his brushed.

3) You say please and thank you for everything.  After all, you have to model it for your child, so you say, "Please may I please go to the bathroom.  Thank you dear for making me toast."  Etc.

4) Your idea of a night out is your kid's Christmas party, complete with reggae and an inflatable snowman and mini cupcakes.

5)Making a gingerbread house for Christmas requires more monitoring than just keeping the cat out of it.  Also, said ginger house is made with no desire for anyone to ever eat it.  It's just impossible to keep it "edible clean".

6) You find yourself looking at adults throwing tantrums with, "Really?  That's the best you got?  My 2 1/2 year old can throw a way better tantrum than you."

7) You find yourself sneaking garbanzo beans into Macaroni and Cheese and Chocolate Chip cookies.  Thanks, Jessica Seinfeld.

8) You find yourself in a fake "igloo" at 7 in the morning and are actually enjoying it.  Without a kid, you treasured this time.  With an infant, you were just getting asleep and with a toddler, you've been up for an hour.
