Here’s some things I’ve noticed over the years:
I don’t laugh as hard as I used to. I laugh more internally now. I used to double over in stitches and laugh real hardily over things. Now for some reason I hold it back.
Things sag a little more after pregnancy…..I’m working on that. I don’t have as much a weight issue as I have a toning issue.
I’ve stopped dancing. I used to tap and do jazz and take dance classes, but I have no time for it these days except for the occasional dancing around my house while doing chores.
I used to play guitar but the neck on my guitar is warped and I’ve done nothing with it in 3 years.
I used to be a reading machine…..now the internet and blogging have kind of taken its place.
Hunky Hubs also says I get angry more easily now. He just said this as he’s sitting in his chair hoping I don’t reach out a ten foot arm and smack him. 😉 Which is true, but it’s usually about things malfunctioning. I tend to make the problem worse when something is amiss and Hunky Hubs calmly says….”calm down I will fix it”, or “I will help you”.
I used to never leave the house without at least eye liner and lipstick. Now I simply brush my hair, put it in a ponytail and grab my flip-flops and I’m out the door.
I chopped my hair super short when J was almost a year old. I have had long hair pretty much my whole life, except for when I did the same thing in college, but that was just shoulder length. His hands would tangle my hair and he’s use it to climb up me. I couldn’t take it anymore….I CHOPPED IT.
Lets see my love for coffee has grown and probably hit its peak after I gave birth to my son after 9 months of nothing. That 9 months, I craved it, but never had it. So unfortunately having given the occasional coffee drink up for nine months made me an everyday drinker once I popped.
Overall, have I changed in a bad way? Have I just grown up? Or is there something else factoring into things now?
How would you say motherhood has changed you?
