How are you differant?

The highlights of my week were going shopping at Sam's club and discovering I can reserve books at the library online and they will have them ready when I get there.Yeah. Before the whole marriage and baby business, I was fun. I did exciting things. I could stay out all night, and work the next day. I could go spend 100 bucks on a purse and not bat an eye. My friends and I talked about sex and other interesting things. Now we talk about diaper rash. So, I guess my question is, How has being a wife and mother changed you? And don't say it hasn't because we will all know you are full of crap.

  • I clip coupons and read labels.

    I used to be a horror movie junkie, and now I can't stand to watch anything that involved a child in trouble, not even episodes of Cold Case where the victim is a kid.

    I can recite Fox in Sox from memory.

  • Umm I don't know if this makes me lame, but I think checking a book out from the library IS exciting. Before I became a mommy and a wife I went to church every sunday, read my bible, sewed and stayed at home on Friday nights so honestly not much has changed except I don't go to church anymore. Oh and I drink a little more now, so I guess I have become a lame alcoholic.

  • I actually put everyone's needs before my own now. I can't believe how selfish and self-centered I used to be.

  • Becoming a mother has made me a super hero.

    I have magic boo-boo healing powers, I have x-ray vision, I am sooooo strong and I can kiss/smack/hug in the blink of an eye.

    I wouldn't trade it for anything. My 20s and early 30s were empty blah-blah fun - drinking, sleeping around, making risky choices. I ran my guardian angel ragged until I decided to grow up. I don't want to be any age but 41 - I'm happy.

  • I didn't do a whole lot before I had kids, as in going out drinking and that kind of thing so that has not changed for me. But I have to say I do miss doing what ever I wanted when ever I wanted. I would not change having my boys for anything but at the same time I also find my self longing for my single care free days!
