What Happened To Us?

This morning Facebook posted a photo of my husband and I from 4 years ago…aka PRE KIDS.  I wondered what happened to the fun, spontaneous people we used to be?

No wrinkles.
No grey hair.
Flat stomach.
Care free smile.
Not a care in the world.

Now I look at myself in the mirror to see:
Lines in my forehead.
Grey hair peeking out.
Tired eyes.
Stretch marks covering my stomach
A constant ‘to do’ list running through my head of laundry, school lunches, playdates, cooking
There is a wariness in my eyes now screaming on the inside: I just want 10 minutes to myself without anyone needing anything!!!!

 

Little girls laughter snaps me out of my own thoughts.   I turn around to see the only things that matter in my life. I figured out WHAT HAPPENED TO US: FAMILY! 
Valentines
It’s inevitable that our outside appearance will change but it is the happiness in our hearts that truly matters.  The days are long and the nights are short, but my heart has never been so full- Now that’s motherhood.

There is only one person that can recreate the fun couple we used to be and thats ME…SO WE ARE OFF FOR A KIDS FREE WEEKEND IN SAN FRANCISCO.  Ghandi always said “be the change you want to see.”
