Life lessons... take 1

When I became a parent, I thought that I would stay young, hip and cool. I envisioned myself still doing and liking all the same things I liked before I gave birth... and for the most part I still do. It's just that things are a little different now. Meaning, if I go out with the girls to have a good time, I know in the back of my mind that my state of being the next day is important because I have a child that needs me. If I'm in a wedding (because I just was on Saturday) even though Doug is there and I pumped... I'm not dancing like crazy and drinking with my friends, I'm standing off to the side dancing mildly crazy and holding my child who happens to be so happy because he is wrapped on his mama's chest.

All I'm saying is that things are different now. They're not bad, or horrific, they are just different.

But you now what... I'm different too. I'm stronger and more confident. I'm a kick ass mom, who is loving it! I have an amazing child, that I cherish spending every day with because I don't know what God has in store for his future. I do know that I have big plans for his future. And each day I aid in his growth and development and honor his little being for he too has an opion of what he likes and dislikes. I can't wait until we can dream together and he can verbalize his ideas and dreams to me even more clearly!!!

p.s., I think I'm succeeding at staying young, hip and cool...
