-Someone in Target sneezes behind you and you sing, “God bless youuuuuuuuuu!” the same way you do to your child. Accidentally. Awkward.
-You know that designer handbag you never used to put on the floor? You lose it for a few weeks then find it, with Puffs crumbled at the bottom.
-You smile at babies on planes. If the baby is crying, you send good vibes to the baby and mom instead of letting your brain explode with internal expletives.
-Your husband is watching the baby at home, you’re driving to run an errand, singing along to Raffi, all by yourself.
-You’re fully convinced your baby is a genius… because she is.
-You think of life differently.
Having a baby has taught me a lot about myself, about my perception of those around me, the measurement of time, and what’s most important. I just want Liv to be safe, healthy and happy. Sometimes I forget if I’m hungry, haven’t showered in a couple of days and am still wearing last night’s pajamas. If Liv is healthy, full and smiling up at me- nothing else matters. <3
