5. You know what time it is based upon what is currently on PBS.
4. You do things with one hand, even when there is no toddler on your hip.
3. You cannot say the name of an animal without immediately making the corresponding noise.
2. You see an unidentifiable, gigantic object on an 18-wheeler, and your first response to your friend’s question “What is that thing?” is “Looks like a doghouse for Clifford.”
1. You have food and/or snot on your shoulder, and not only do you not really care but you fail to even notice it’s there anymore.
