Another 'you know you're a mom when' moment

I still notice the smirks I get when I come back to my office at the end of my lunch break with an economy pack of Huggies, but it doesn't deter me. They're so much less expensive at the supermarket downstairs, you see, and after all, I'm a veteran at dragging purchases home in the Métro.

It seems that between the baby food stains and the bad-hair-and-worse-sleep days and the jumping up and down in front of the stroller to make le Petit laugh, I just have very little pride left.

Or I have lots of pride, perhaps, but not in the same things as before?

Now I'm beginning to understand why through all my I'm-so-embarrassed-I-will-shrivel-up-and-die moments in high school my mother just patted me on the back and shrugged.

You hit the nail on the head. This is exactly how I feel now!
