  • I'm more sensitive to others and more of a multi-tasker. I'm more confident in everything I do.

  • Hmmm... not that much, I guess. I have different interests, and I care a lot more about other people than I do myself now. But I'm still me. I'm still a smartass. I still like the same music, the same movies. I still enjoy the same humor, I still want the same things out of life.

  • My oldest is 11 so that's a wide time period and I matured a lot. I am also friendlier and don't worry so much about the small stuff. I have 4 kids now.

  • As a mother- I have become much more thoughtful of others. I care about my family a great deal more than before. As a single mother--- my temper, and my necessity for everything to be 'just right' have both gone down. And I love it all :)

  • I am waay more sensitive to other parents f eelings. I became aware of a lot of things I wasnt really aware of, I became more responsible and I learned to do things for myself (and baby obviously). Overall I think I am just more aware of life, of people around me, of the importance of many things I thought were unnecessary before becoming a mommy..

  • I changed alot because before all I had to worry about was myself and now I have a son to take care of and hes all I think about , I go shopping for myself and end up seeing something for him and take the money and spend it on him because I finally learned what true love is

  • Same with me - my oldest is 10 and it is hard to compare. I have matured a lot and some of my interests have changed. I am a very different person now than I was pre-kids, but life has changed me in a lot of ways that I didn't expect. I enjoy similar music and movies, but hobbies have changed because I have learned new things. I have the same friends, but don't see them or talk to them that much.

  • I've become much more liberal as a whole.

  • I don't party nearly as much. Other then that I do not think I have changed that much. I still dress the way I did, listen to the music I did, and have the same thoughts about things that I did.
