Things That Have Changed

Here are some ways your life changes when you become a mom:

You finally stop to smell the roses, because your baby is in your arms.

The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.

You respect your body ... finally.

You respect your parents and love them in a new way.

You find that your baby's pain feels much worse than your own.

You lose touch with the people in your life whom you should have banished years ago.

Your heart breaks much more easily.

You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.

Every day is a surprise.

Bodily functions are no longer repulsive. In fact, they please you. (Hooray for poop!)

You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.

You become a morning person.

Your love becomes limitless, a superhuman power.

You finally realize that true joy doesn't come from material wealth.

You'd rather buy a plastic tricycle than those shoes that you've been dying to have.

You don't mind going to bed at 9 p.m. on Friday night.

You realize that the 15 pounds you can't seem to get rid of are totally worth having.

You discover an inner strength you never thought you had.

You no longer rely on a clock — your baby now sets your schedule.

You give parents with a screaming child an 'I-know-the-feeling' look instead of a 'Can't-they-shut-him-up?' one.

You take the time for one more hug and kiss even if it means you'll be late.

You learn that taking a shower is a luxury.

You find yourself wanting to make this world a better place.

You just plain love life more - everything comes together and becomes better because of one tiny person and your love for them.

Where you were once afraid, you're now fearless.

Nothing is just yours any longer. You share EVERYTHING!

No matter what you've accomplished in life, you look at your child and think, "I've done a GREAT job!"

You can have the most wonderful conversation using only vowel sounds like "ahhh" and "oooo."
