Bar Crawler Turned Baby Crawling Wrangler

Now that I have a little human being that is mobile and puts anything resembling paper in his mouth, I wonder why on earth did I decide to start a blog. Blogs are for food snobs, photography buffs and world travelers. I am none of these. I barely have time to rinse myself off let alone write a 500-word post. I made a promise when I started the Post a Day Challenge that I can do it even if it’s just 100 words.

I posted a picture of my college heyday on Facebook about how different my life was just three, (heck!) even two, years ago. Let me tell you: Life then was mild compared to what I have to deal with now.

Just another Thursday study session (1/7/10)

Then: Salon haircuts and daily makeup
Now: Shedding hair, Scrunchy and Burts Bees Chapstick (in no particular order)

Then: Single-serve meals
Now: Nurse baby, feed Husband and self (in that particular order)

Then: Jeans and high heels
Now: Yoga pants, sandals and a burp cloth

Then: Bar crawls, hungover mornings and twin-sized bed
Now: Baby crawls, happier mornings and family bed snuggles

I’m this kid’s mama?! LUCKY.

Did I say life was more fun then? I lied; my life sucked back then. Humnoy makes my life a whole lot crazier but also brighter, lovelier and better for this former party girl. Looks like I made it more than 100 words here. Daily Blog Mission: Accomplished.

  1. Awww, this made my tear up. You remind me so much of myself in my early mama days (I also did the co-sleeping, nursing on demand, attachment parenting approach). I know that just made you cringe in horror, but we don’t have to be midlife twins or anything! >:D
