I originally wrote this post for Natasha over at Epic Mommy Adventures, but I thought I would post an updated version here for all of you to
laugh at enjoy!
A lot of things have disappeared since I became a parent. I used to have them. I used to know where they were. Now, they are either just gone or I am too tired to look for them.
Of all the things I’ve lost…(while parenting!)
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!
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.
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.
I used to be able to watch my friends act a fool and laugh right along with them. Hell, sometimes I was the one riding the grocery cart down the supermarket aisle while my friend pushed it at full speed. Now, I can’t handle it for long at all. Especially in public!
But, the thing I miss the most.
