I’ve lost a lot of things as a parent.
Yet, of all the things I’ve lost, there is one I miss the most.
Of all the things I’ve lost…(while parenting!)
1. My Sense Of Style.
Not that it was all that FABULOUS to begin with, but at least I had a little bit. Now, I’m lucky if I put a bra on and a shirt that is stain free.
2. My Energy.
I used to be able to go go go! Stay up all night, drinking RedBull and Mt. Dew plus go to work the next day! Now, I go to bed tired, I wake up tired and I am tired all day long!
3. My Privacy.
I used to be able to get dressed alone. I used to be able to take long, leisurely showers. I used to be able to close the bathroom door. Now, chaos ensues in a click of the door handle!
4. My Hair.
It is literally coming out. Falling out, being pulled out, turning gray. You name it, it’s happening. My hair is not my hair any more. Now, it is Mom Hair.
5. My Freedom.
I used to be spontaneous! I used to run off at the drop of a hat. I used to go on impromptu road trips. Now, everything must be planned out or it doesn’t happen.
But, the thing I miss the most.
Even with the things that I have lost, I wouldn’t change it.
I love my kids.
At least, I don’t think I would. *shifty eyes*
Nah, I wouldn’t change it!
