I often find myself giggling and thinking back to what life was like not having a child. Remember when you could run out the door at a moments notice to pick something up from the grocery store, or when a friend called to ask you to meet them for drinks, you couldn’t say YES quickly enough?! Or remember when you could spend all morning sleeping in and then finish the day off by lying on the couch all afternoon catching up on your PVR?! Or when you could easily walk through the house at night without any lights on and you would never worry about stepping on a block or making something light up and say “A is for apple.” It really seems like forever ago, doesn’t it?!
I thought about how every aspect of my life has changed and I wanted to document it for you in pictures.
Would I change all this for anything in the world?! Heck no! Being a parent is so much more than crisp white linens, a floor you don’t slip on and sitting down to enjoy a full meal without interruptions. It’s about memories, new experiences and getting to raise a family.
