There’s nothing “normal” about being a mother. It’s such a strange, fun, and wild ride, isn’t it? It’s something I wouldn’t change for the world, no matter how unexpected motherhood was for me. My little Alea is the little light of my life, but that doesn’t mean motherhood is all sunshine and rainbows. Becoming a mother changes everything. And it doesn’t just change our body, it changes our opinions and our lifestyle as well. Here’s a few things that have changed when I became a mother and why I’m just not your average 20-something:
one | I’d rather get drunk on coffee than alcohol.
two | Friday nights mean staying home watching Disney movies and eating popcorn rather than going out with friends.
three | More of my time is spent in Gymboree and Carters shopping for Alea than shopping for clothes for myself.
four | I get excited over coupons for milk. They never have coupons for milk!
five | I feel more passionate about topics like car-seat safety, breastfeeding in public, and immunizations than any other.
six | Talking about bodily functions like pooping, peeing, and boogers in public isn’t as embarrassing as it once was.
seven | I know all the words to all the theme songs for every show on Disney Jr.
eight | Sleeping in means 8am and staying up late means 10:30pm.
What are your “momisms” or what makes you a little abnormal from the rest?
