The other day I was talking with a friend when I realized that we had talked for an hour telling funny stories of kids. We each had our own children, and while we wanted to catch up with each other, we ended up just talking about our kids and families. Was I mad? No, not at all. I guess when you turn to be a mother other things don’t matter as much. It seemed like yesterday though this friend and I were in college chasing all the boys around and just having fun. Then of course we both met our match and Boom! We were married.
Fast forward ten years down the road and we each have three children. Sometimes I ask myself where the time goes, and if I have lived up to everything I wanted to accomplish. So many people live with regret and I did not want to be one of those people. The truth is, I hear a lot of people say that when they had kids they stopped living, and all their dreams and ambitions went down the tubes. I see it the opposite. Once I had my first, I have never lived so much, and when the other two came, I couldn’t even imagine my life without them. I have friends that always want to ask the funny stories of kids, and see if it is worth it to them. My answer is never changing and always an out standing YES. Kids not only have made my life my full, but have helped me realize that life is to be enjoyed. Life is to give of oneself and help out another. Sure times get hard, but these kids and their funny stories keep me laughing all day long. I wouldn’t change a thing even if I could.Yes my kid did that
