Things I love about being a mom:
This beautiful face!
Getting her here was the hardest thing I have done and the proudest I have ever been.
Watching her eyes light up, every little thing is a new adventure.
The way she wraps her legs tight around me when I hold her.
The way she picks a book, brings it to me and then climbs on my lap.
Her pure love of animals.
When you tell her to “be nice” she will give kisses!
Her laugh when I tickle her.
Watching her and her daddy. True love!
Knowing she is a pure and innocent part of half me and half Shane.
Her sense of humor, I don’t know if I should be proud or worried.
As amazing as being a mom is, there are some things I miss about my pre-kid life. Maybe it’s because I am solo during the week or maybe it’s completely normal…Some things we take for granted before we become parents, here are a few that I miss.
Things I miss now that I am a mom:
Sleeping pills. Some nights I just want to sleep sound and through the night.
Reading books during the day, in the sun.
Sleeping in on weekends and by sleeping in I mean at least until 7:30.
Taco Tuesdays, out of the house.
Daily gym time.
Completing simple tasks without being interuppted.
Lunch breaks. Alone! Very rarely am I all alone.
Although I miss these things, I don’t miss them as much as I love K bear. Some day I will get to do all these things again.
