mommy life

My days used to consist of,
-waking up at 6:30 ish
- taking 45 min. to get ready and get out the door
- work 9 - 10 hr days then going to school.
- come home and clean a bit, watch tv most the night, cook dinner, run.
- go to bed around 9 ish (yes i was an old lady but only on week days)
- if it was the weekend, i would usually enjoy some kind of beverage to de-stress from the week and go to bed around 11 - midnight.
My days now consist of,
- waking up at 5 to get everything ready before my little miss wakes up
- getting makenzie up at 6 and feeding her, dressing her and kissing her
- do a little happy dance for our daily exercise
- run around the house getting everything in order before we leave at 7
- drop kenz at the daycare
- drive to work feeling very sad and wishing i could just go home and hold my baby all day
- work 9 ish hrs. only thinking about makenzie. watching the clock and feeling comfort when her feeding times come because I know what she is doing.
- speeding home
- holding my baby who usually is a bit fussy and who wont let me sit down all night
- talking walks when the screaming gets to loud (it calms her down best)
- singing, dancing, reading stories, laying on the floor, taking pictures while surrounded by
a very messy house
- feeding, bath and story time at 9
- snuggling my baby not wanting to go to bed
- finally give in, lay her in bed and drag myself to my own bed around 10:30 - 11
- lay awake for around 30 more minutes while I imagine makenzie's future, praying that God watches over her.
Am I completely crazy or what....
This little girl sure has changed her Mom and Dad.
Can you relate? Has your life completely changed since you had a child?

Kendra - What a beautiful picture! Your life sounds crazy busy, I wish you didn't have to go back to work. I love your new Halloween background.

Let's find time in your busy schedule to do something soon!

p.s. your room behind you looks spotless, not messy!

Cont. In fact I had that awesome life change 5 times. Each time a little CRAZIER and NUTTIER but awesome. Each unique and special. The addition of 5 steps was pretty neat too. Life just gets better each day. Love it, appreciate it. Love mom
