Thursday Thirteen #74

Thirteen Things about Twisted Cinderella

Once upon a time, I was interesting. I had opinions and I was funny. These days my witty side has been replaced by my mommy side. Here are some things that I noticed have changed in recent years:
  1. Don't ask me my opinions on current events, but I can talk your ear off on baby bottles.
  2. Instead of funky cool jeans and long dangly earings, I spend most days in sweats with naked ears. If I wear fake pearls in my ears, it is a good day.
  3. Instead of feta cheese, I buy cheese strings.
  4. My antique books are packed in basements and baby safe movies are in their place.
  5. Instead of being picky about the inches between the vases on my entertainment center, I now am happy just to keep the clutter on top to one corner.
  6. High heeled shoes have been replaced with push-on keds.
  7. Instead of a closet full of dresses and skirts, I have a laundry basket filled with clean comfy clothes that hasn't made its way to my dresser yet.
  8. My goal isn't to keep my house spotless, my goal is to keep it comfortable.
  9. Instead of buying myself a rose to put on my table, I put dandelions on my windowsill.
  10. Once completely up to date on all the latest dances and music, I have now turned into that crotchety old lady who asks "Who is making that noise?" When I mention one of my favorite singers, my daughter asks, "Who is that mommy?"
  11. My daughter talks about things that will happen when she is old like me.
  12. My knees now make more noise than the popcorn I stood up to make.
  13. I lose complete track of my thoughts as I stop whatever I am doing fifty times to answer little questions, kiss little boo-boos, read little stories, change little diapers, wipe little noses, and get great big hugs.

I think it is a very good sign that you are aware of these changements, lol ! Wear long earrings, but pay attention that nobody pulls them off !

Yeah, those little things really add up. It's amazing how much kids can make your perspective on life shift. Don't worry. In a few years your kids will be trying to swipe the dangling earrings, to wear instead of to stick in their mouths.

There is something incredibly special about someone placing their little hand in yours and walking beside you with absolute faith and trust, about someone rushing in bursting to tell you their exciting news, about someone laying in your arms, snuggling up close knowing that no one cuddles them quite the way that you do.
