Got tagged by bkworm and Jomel. They want to know what I was like before I became a Mum.
So here goes:
Before I was a Mum:
.. I didnt realise that I would actually laugh when I got "sprayed" when changing diapers.
.. I didnt realise how many times a young child / baby could poop in a day.
.. I didnt know that night feeds would make me into a panda! (Just look at my eyes!)
.. I always said I wouldnt use those phrases my mum used on me. But look now! I am sprouting those very same phrases at my kids!
.. I didnt realise that it cost SOOOO MUCH to bring up a child.
.. I didnt know my killer look could stop tantrum throwing kids in their tracks.
.. I had to work long hours. Now, I have no rest days.
.. I never thought I would give up my career to be a full time mum.
.. I could and would spend my money on anything I fancied. Now I spend mostly on the kids, often depriving myself.
.. I hated vegetable stems. Now the kids would only eat the leafy part of greens, and I have grown to love eating vegetable stems.
.. I never thought I was capable of neglecting my grooming, until one day I looked into the mirror - horrors of all horrors - now I try not to let it happen again!!
.. I never really understood the true meaning of Love. Now I do!!
Well, now maybe the following Mums would share with us what they were like before they became a Mum:
