Now & Then...

So, I was thinking today (shocker...hehe) who was I before becoming a mother? Who am I now? What has changed...big or small? Before having children my hubby and I were together for a very short period of time so we never really had that "honeymoon" stage! Don't get me wrong...we loved going out with our friends and still do, although it is a rare occasion when that happens!

Some of the small changes that have occurred since become a mommy are that I have traded in fruity cocktails for steaming hot cups of coffee, the occasional cigarette (so bad I know) turned into a pacifier held between my lips, high heels became flip flops, and lingerie has been replaced by tank tops and yoga pants!

Big changes are that I now know what it is like to love someone so much it hurts. I know how great the fear of losing someone actually is. I know what it is like to want to go all mama-bear on someone who causes any pain or hurt to your family. Being a parent has changed me into a softer, more loving, giving, logical, stronger version of myself!

I think I wear the role of "Mommy" quite well and I think it looks good on me! Don't get me wrong, I sometimes miss being able to get all dolled up in a moments notice and go where ever the wind took me, but I would never in a million years trade that in for the sticky kisses and unconditional love that comes from my children! I love their love the most!

Leave me a comment and share your stories...

I completely agree! I sometimes look back and miss some of the things that I could do before my son was born. But, then he looks into my eyes or gives me hugs/kisses and I melt. I wouldn't trade it for anything :)
