Life Before Kids vs Life After Kids


Before I had kids, I was ALWAYS on the GO! I mean I was only 20 years old, I hadn’t even reached the legal age for drinking yet but I had still experienced more than your average 20-year-old. From taking trips around the world to partying up until 5AM every Friday and Saturday night. You name it, I did it. Freedom was at the tip of my fingers. There was not another human being I was caring for, there was plenty of ME time, and I could sleep for hours a day without hearing “Momma” every five seconds. My body was still MY body and my life was still MY life.

 After having kids I found the true meaning of unconditional love. I found the two people who really gave my world a meaning. I found the two people who motivated me to follow my dreams just by the smiles on their faces. I found the cries of my newborn and the laughter of my toddler music to my ears. I found all the sleepless nights and early mornings worth it. Grant it, I could do without the bags under my eyes and weird body changes (haha). But I sacrificed my life and body for two little tiny human beings that mean the world to me! 

Nobody can ever prepare you for life after kids. It’s just something that comes with becoming a mother. But honestly I can say motherhood is the best club I’ve joined in a while and though things may get tough, the job gets done!
