Remember When...

Gone are the days when you can lounge around all day without being interuppted.

Better yet having a real conversation with another adult.

Gone are the days of talking on the phone uninterrupted - now little ones are tugging at your arm fighting for your attention.

Remember when you could go shopping and spend hours in the store-now you are rushed through the isles, barely enough time to try on things without comments like 'wow mom I can see your stomach'.

I used to be able to eat my food without little fingers picking in my plate or drinking whatever is in my glass.

Remember when you could go a whole week or more before you had to do laundry? Now the laundry is piled a mile high.

How about only having to make a meal for yourself. Now you have to think about what to fix for dinner daily or making meal plans for the week.

The biggest of all - being able to shower for 20 min (some days you can barely get a shower).

I love my family and my little ones and I wouldn't change it for anything. We make small sacrifices daily so that we can love and cherish those entrusted in our care. We only have them for a short time and then they grow up and become adults. I have learned to be more patient, and unselfish and learned that my heart can be filled with more love than I could have ever imagined.

Am I alone? Let me know your thoughts. I'd love to hear from you.

Be Blessed,

The Tickled Diva
