I am far more conscious of how people talk around me/the kids. I'm no prude, but I don't think it's necessary to drop an f-bomb every 5 seconds and I don't want the kids hearing it!

Also, I used to enjoy watching darker shows (like Law&Order SVU) but now those are just too dark and scary and stressful for me.

Everything. I had my first at 17. I didnt go out with friends, I wasnt care free anymore. I had someone to look after and someone who depended on me.. I worked and I did what I had to do, DH too. With each age and stage things change a little more. When they are little you have to put a little more into the process of getting out of the house. when they get older its more just go.  for the most part I like to say it changes for the best.

giving up our freedom for a little while at least,  but I wouldn't change it for anything.

My DH and I were married for almost 5 years before we had kids, so it was an adjustment not having as much time for each other.

My whole life changed. I had my first at 17 also, and all the partying stopped, I had to learn to be more responsible, and put her needs first in my life. Wouldn't change a thing!
