Life Changes Since Jack

Pre-baby: Went to bed closer to midnight.

Post-baby: Hits the pillow when the ice cream truck is still rollin'.

Pre-baby: Cleaned house about once a week.

Post-baby: There is not enough time to keep the house clean.

Pre-baby: I woke up for work at 6:30 and was able to get out the door by 7.

Post-baby: The latest I wake up is 5:45 but most days it is 4:30.

Pre-baby: I use to find myself bored when I got home from work. 

Post-baby: I yearn to be bored.

__________________________________________________________

Pre-baby: I thought I knew what love was.

Post-baby: I fall crazily in love with him more every day.

__________________________________________________________

Pre-baby: Meals were cherished and so quiet.

Post-baby: Meals are rushed or nonexistent. 

__________________________________________________________

Pre-baby: Music was a huge part of my life. 

Post-baby: Now I want the car quiet just so I can enjoy some peace.

__________________________________________________________

Pre-baby: Friends were my family and my family was just my family.

Post-baby: Many friends are gone and my family is my lifeline. 

__________________________________________________________

Pre-baby: My mind could rest.

Post-baby: Even when all is well I'm still worried. I think motherhood is a constant worry.


What thing has drastically changed since having a precious baby?

  1. My social life! Although I am enjoying raising my kids, I am looking forward to when they're older so I can go out with friends again! LOL

  2. Hi Ashley! Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to leave a sweet comment! We've only been married a year, so we don't have kids yet... this post made me laugh though! We often say as we are rushing out the door at 6 AM (yes, 6!!!) to carpool to work "How would we have done this today with kids!?" I guess you just make it work... but HANG IN THERE! Looks like he is totally worth it!

  3. Oh my goodness, I am with you on every single one! Having a baby is SUCH a huge change. Even having just had my third baby (six months ago), I found that most of these reoccurred. My favorite was wanting silence, rather than music, in the car. That is SO true for me!
