I know that it's strange to ask and I definitely don't regret being a mom. But sometimes I wish people would remember that I do have interests outside of my son (and baby-on-the-way). Its like with some people EVERY conversation circles back to my role as a mom. Not that I don't like talking about my pregnancy and my son.
But come on! Every convo???
Don't you remember I like to read books? That I still watch TV? That I am a Science Major? Have a job? On that note, where did my single, childless friends go??
Ah, this turned into more of a rant. Sorry. I'm just hoping I'm not the only one that feels this way sometimes.

I've been a mom for so long, that I think I've forgotten what life was like pre-parenthood! That's sad in a way. The next time someone steers the conversation back to the kids, just do your darnedest to steer it back to something else. But don't forget to carry pics of the kids in the wallet or on your phone, or they will think you're a terrible mom! lol :p
