Friday night IN
It's funny to think how different my life is now. It was only six years ago that I was single and stuck in party mode. I would go out to bars/clubs every weekend without a care in the world. Now a Friday night consists of spending time with Paul & Liv, feeding her dinner, giving her a bath, reading her books, getting her to bed, watching a movie or TV and relaxing on the couch. "Going out" consists of going to the store or maybe running errands. I'm sure all that sounds boring to people without kids but I actually love it, I wouldn't have it any other way. Maybe I'm old but it's nice to feel settled. I had a lot of fun when I was younger but I wouldn't ever wish to go back. I really don't miss hangovers, although sometimes I get so sleep deprived that I feel like I have one and it brings me back. Don't get me wrong, it's great to have a "girls night out" every once in a while but going out and getting wasted every weekend does not sound fun at all. Before I had Liv, I would always see people posting tons of pictures of their kids (it never bothered me) but I didn't think I would ever be "that mom". The truth is, I am. I post pictures and talk about her all the time because she is my whole life. I guess it's hard for some people to understand but I'm sure they will get it one day. Plus, I much rather see pictures of kids than gym selfies. Actually to be honest, nothing anyone posts really bothers me unless they are complaining about what other people post.. and now I just became part of the problem ha. Anyway, the whole point of this post was because I realized it was Friday and I started thinking about how much has changed, I am completely happy to be where I am now and so grateful for Olivia.
