Restless Before, Restless After

Before I was a mom…
I thought I was “busy”. HA!

Before I was a mom…
I thought being a mom would be easy. Now, I realize it is anything but.

Before I was a mom…
I thought when I became a mom, I would turn into this all-knowing, mature “woman”. Now I realize I know less than I thought I did before and act more immature than my 18 month old daughter. Boy, do I feel sorry for her -

Before I was a mom…
I had no idea of the value of time. Now, I would do anything to have back, all the time I wasted and took for granted before becoming a mom.

Before I was a mom…
My weight didn’t yo yo and my hair – well actually – it was always a mess. But at least 1/2 of it didn’t fall out!

Before I was a mom…
I thought life was complicated and made it complicated. Now, life IS complicated and I’m trying to make it less complicated.

Before I was a mom…
Crying babies didn’t bother me – I just felt sorry for them. Now, they still don’t bother me, I just feel sorry for the parents.

Before I was a mom…
I thought I couldn’t love anything more than my dogs. Now, I sometimes forget I even HAVE dogs (they’re w/my parents). Poor babies.

Before I was a mom…
I felt like I was missing out if I wasn’t out and about, partying, living in L.A. or New York with some flashy job, in flashy clothes, living a flashy life. Now, I KNOW I was missing out on everything…just not that stuff.
