15 Ways My Life Has Changed

15 Ways My Life Has Changed (Since Having Children)

The other day I was thinking about everything that has changed since I had children. Pretty much everything is different, of course, but I decided to come up with a list anyways. Can you believe I've only been a mother for 15 months and yet I have 3 kids? That sounds insane to me. Next month will be our 2 year anniversary, too. These past two years have been pretty crazy as far as changes go, that's for sure!

1. I spend more time picking out clothes for the kids than for myself. It is not unusual for me to forget to get dressed until right before my husband comes home from work in the afternoon!

2. My car goes for weeks on end without being started. (We don't have carseats for both vehicles and mine wouldn't work for all three anyways since one of the back doors is broken and doesn't open...someday soon I will get a new vehicle)

3. I don't mind picking someone else's nose (just my babies, let's not get too crazy here!).

4. I've pretty much forgotten how to interact with real life adults.

5. Three hours of sleep in a row sounds heavenly.

6. I get to be entertained on a daily basis by three cute little goofballs. Life was never this interesting before.

7. I don't really have anything in common with my friends who don't have children anymore.

8. The smallest things make me tear up. Especially anything having to do with children or babies.

9. I identify more with the parents than with the kids on TV shows and movies.

10. If I do actually get to sleep for a few hours in a row, I wake up and worry that something is wrong because I haven't heard anyone crying. 

11. Sometimes I miss my little boy when he goes to bed...that's probably really strange, isn't it?

12. I wonder every day how did I get so lucky.

13. Everything I do is planned around nap times. 

14. I would rather go to bed early and get more sleep than go anywhere on the weekends.

15. I have to wash out my "clean" plastic containers and measuring cups before using them because they are scattered all over the floor.

I'm sure I could go on and on but I think 15 is a good number. What are some things that have changed since you had kids?

  1. Great list! I can deff relate to #8!! I tear up at the craziest things now! Also, #15! I actually bought my son his own kitchen stuff to play with because I could never find anything! Would love to have you link up this post with me for Time for Mom today! :) (its the first day of the new link up, which used to Mommy Mondays!)

  2. Wow!! You seriously have me beat when it comes to kids in two years lol. Leon and i will be married 2 years in Dec. You are quite an inspiration to me. :)

    Love this post!

    1. lol thanks! I certainly wasn't trying for three in two years! :P Are you guys doing anything fun for your anniversary this year?

  3. Wowzers, girl! You've really done it... but, babies are such blessings! You're so right, though, about everything you listed - I've experienced it all, too. I'm definitely more dramatic now that I'm a mom - everything tends to be theatrical when I'm talking to my two year old... I'll catch myself making weird, over the top facial expressions while saying things like, "WOW! That's aaaaaammmaaaaazzzziiiinnnngggg that you can put your sippy cup in the sink!" Swore I'd never be a weirdo mom, but I'm wearing the badge proudly, now! LOL!

    1. They are a blessing! I'm very thankful for them even if they are a LOT of work lol. I never thought I'd be a weirdo mom either, but kids really do change a person!

  4. I completely hear you on nearly everything, especially 1, 8, 11, 12, 13, and 14. And I never would have thought that I'd willingly pick someone else's nose! LOL.

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one, I wasn't sure if that was just something weird or if all mothers did it :P lol

  5. Oh my lanta! This list is so true! Especially #'s 4, 7, 8, & 9. It's nuts how children change everything about you over night!

    1. It's crazy, isn't it? You need to come visit again so we can practice adult conversations! :P

  6. This is a really good list! I'm pretty sure I couldn't pick anyone else's nose except for Little Man's but yes, that is definitely on my list.

    And staying home and not going anywhere on the weekends... I love. Totally.

    Happy Weekend!

    1. Thanks Kate! Yeah some of the stuff we have to do as mothers is kind of weird and gross lol :P I hope you are having a great week! <3
