you know you've conquered "mommy instincts" when...

...you can rewind your toddler back from a total crazy, exorcist-like screaming, nosebleed inducing, I-don't-want-to-go-to-bed tantrum by going back to the site of the meltdown. 

And when you can not laugh really hard when it just so happens that the point of no return was when she wasn't allowed to walk up the steps by herself.  So, naked except for the coat & galoshes she insists on putting on, you watch her go outside, walk up the steps & then proceed to go to bed without much more of a hassle. That, my friends, is conquering mommy instinct.
