It's been over 7 years ago since I first became a parent. Now, two (going on three) kids later, and my life has changed so much. Not only since those days when it was just my husband and me but since those early days when it was just one little baby sleeping in my arms.
I honestly do not even remember what life was like before children. I don't remember how I occupied my time, what my days were like, what I did with all that time and all that sleep. I don't remember what it felt like to hear the silence of an empty home or what it was like to walk across a room in the pitch-black of darkness and not worry about tripping over toys. I don't remember what it was like to wake up in the early morning and not find a sleeping child beside me. All I know is that it must have been totally different than life is now. I don't remember it feeling empty but it had to have been, because life is so full now. Full of giggles and laughs and tickles and hugs and kisses and fingerprints and so much more.
I do know that in those days I never opened up the fridge to discover this staring back at me.
Move in a bit closer.
LOL I'm thinking it was Parker's handiwork. I left it there.
