As much as I tried not to let motherhood rock my world, it kind of did. The list of things that I swore I would do/never do was long and the list of things that I have done that I have broken from that list? Well, it’s pretty long too. There are a ton of things I just “didn’t get” before I had a kid of my own… particularly before I had a toddler of my own, because toddlers are definitely a much different beast than babies. Lovable and sweet, but still a little beast-like at times. I was thinking the other day about just how different life was before I was a mom and as I was remembering the former luxury of lengthy, leisurely showers, I thought I would write down a few. Things that used to be cool before I had kids – things like going out to eat and Daylight Savings time, among others.
What would you add to this list?
