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 corner 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 motherBecause I can’t imagine a life without my children.
Happy Mother’s Day!
