Top 10 Signs You May Be a Parent Who Needs to Get Out of the House More Often

10.  Whenever you drive up to your daughter’s daycare, all of her teachers yell, “HIDE!  It’s Skylar’s Mom!  You know, the woman who NEVER shuts up?”

9.  You have developed an unhealthy crush on Steve, the host of Blue’s Clues;

8.  When you log on to Facebook, it sighs, “YOU again?!”

7.  You think “Jeggings” is the name of the latest Duggar kid;

6.  You often wake up humming the tune that your daughter’s annoying toy cooking pot sings:  Cream It!  Steam It!  Eat it on the cob!  Corn…

5.  The last movie you saw in the theater was Over Her Dead Body;

4.  The biggest laugh you’ve had all week is when the Wonder Pets were passionately singing, “Save the Beaver!”  (I’m not going to lie:  That still makes me laugh.)

3.  You have asked Frank, the Diapers.com delivery guy and new BFF, to be the Godfather of your next child;

2.  You have lost sleep wondering if Cookie Monster has an eating disorder.  (Seriously.  What is UP with that binging and purging business?)

1.  You are so desperate for adult interaction, that you have even started responding to spammers’ e-mails:  Why, yes, I would LOVE to hear more about your penis enlargement business!

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
