I vaguely remember what life was like before I became a mother.
I didn’t have Goldfish crumbs in my purse.
I didn’t have a time-out chair in my kitchen.
I didn’t stub my toe on mountains of toys.
I could go on impromptu dates with my husband.
I could sleep in.
I could close the door when I used the bathroom.
I was more selfish.
I was more judgmental.
I was more rested.
I was less empathetic.
I was less understanding.
I was less appreciative of my own mother.
I vaguely remember what life was like before I became a mother
Because I can’t imagine a life without my children.
Happy Mother’s Day!

  1. Happy Mother's Day to you too!!!!!

    Seriously…I can NOT remember what I even did before I became a mother?

    That is a great poem! Did you write it?

  2. Happy Mother's Day! Great post. And I laughed when I read the part about Goldfish crumbs, I was just grumbling about having to dump Goldfish out of my new Dooney and Bourke purse! Hehe.

  3. Love it – and oh so true, even if it never means going to the bathroom alone again, taking a leisurely shower, having a lie in or going to restaurants that don't have kids menus and "caynons" I would not change my life now for the old one, not ever.

    Happy Mothers Day – I hope you have a wonderful day today
