Being a mom is so great. I love spending time with my sweet Emma Jane. I was talking to another mom the other day and she kept saying in different ways "Life was so different before... (her child)" "We traveled so much more" Kinda went on and on about life. She made it sound really lame now. It made me look back on life before Emma. Yes, we went on a lot more dates. Yes, we could hangout with people until midnight. And yes we got to sleep in until 10 am. I cherish all those moments I had with my husband and friends. But once you become a parent life does change. For me it was for the better. (maybe not at a 3am feeding) It has taught me how to be patient, how to change a diaper within seconds(funny story for another time about this) To slow down and how to love even more. So many other lessons in life as well. I think as parents we get "stuck" in the past of BEFORE our kids. Cherish the past, but even more cherish the moments with your kids!
