Before I became a parent…

Dear Son #1 & #2,

I thought you might be interested to know that I was quite a different person before I became a parent. (No, I’m not talking about the ability to stay up past 9:30pm or being able to have more than one glass of wine – without having to go to bed at 9:30pm.)

I’m talking about things that I actually used to think and say before I became a parent.

“My kid will eat what’s in front of him” – sure he will, as long as it’s KD or ice cream.

“Ew, who picks boogers out of their kids noses? No thanks!” – Are you kidding? Sometimes I score really big ones!

“I will listen to MY music in the car” – which is Sharon, Lois and Bram by the way.

“OMG I will not get my kid a talking Elmo” – or I will, whatever.

“Crayons ONLY in my house” – and markers.

“I will never use TV as a babysitter” – Well, only once in a while…

“The Wiggles? No way, we are not going to watch that annoying show” – …Do the propeller, do the propeller, do the propeller around and around…

“I will not resort to eating my kid’s leftovers” – You done with that chicken nugget son?

“My kid will not behave like that, I assure you” – LMAO

“I’m not sure if I’ll like being a Mom” – I don’t like it, I love it.

Oh how I’ve changed!

Love Mommy,


Like my posts? Yay! I’m so glad. Please follow/like/share this blog and spread the love and, hopefully, the laughter!
