Becoming a mother has taught me a great deal...
Especially about myself.
Some things I am pleased / relieved to discover.
Not so much. :(
Quick to anger
Quick to forgive
Too reliant on easy fixes
Addicted to my reading time
Good at sleeping (any time, any place)
Not a naturally scheduled person
Not good at keeping my tongue
Proficient at entertaining a baby
A sympathetic crier
Not content to sit still for hours
A fiend for kisses
A natural educator
A shopper when bored
More selfish than I thought
An emotional eater
I find that managing my own expectations for the day (of myself and others) is key. Pre-mommyhood, I knew if I wanted something bad enough I could work to make it happen. Being a mommy has put me in my place! :)
Mamas out there, can you relate to any of this?
