If you’re new to this blog, you need to know that I’m a new mom. (Two months is still new, right? Please tell me that’s still new.) If you’re not new here, sorry that’s all I’m writing about these days, it’s literally my entire life at the moment.
When I had Jack, I had “big picture” ideas of how my life would change: I’d be exhausted, I’d be hormonal, I’d love my husband in a whole new way, etc. Little did I know, even the definitions of simplest words would change as well…
BC (Before Children): The tipping point of pure debauchery from this is fun! to I regret everything.
Now: The most gut wrenching trip to the pediatrician you could ever imagine. I’m still recovering. Jack? Oh, he’s fine.
BC: A commodity easily come by and frequently enjoyed.
Now: A true gift from God, a miracle in its own right.
BC: 17 lip glosses, a wallet (with money), gum, hair spray, chapstick (not to be confused with lip gloss), iPhone
Now: 17 diapers, a wallet (seemingly without money), wipes, spit up rags, back-up outfits for baby in the event of a monumental blowout, a bottle, a pacifier, tissues, hand sanitizer, 1 chapstick, iPhone
Going out to dinner
BC: Sounds like a great idea! Where do you want to go?
Now: Sounds like a great idea! When do you want to go – sometime this month? Can we find a babysitter? Do I fit into any of my real clothes yet? When should I feed Jack? Should I pump right before we leave? How much wine can I order and still be able to breastfeed when we get home? Can we skip bath time tonight? If he’s asleep when we get home, should we wake him up to feed him, or just let him sleep? Did you feed the dog? Should we just stay home?
