Before I met you

By 7/27/2015



Before I met you My job was unfulfilled and meaningless

Before I met you I would sleep the morning away

Before I met you I had all the money I wanted for clothes and makeup

Before I met you I could eat what I wanted and never gain a pound

Before I met you I'd have hours to pamper myself and get dolled up

Before I met you I could watch a film and eat at my own pace

Before I met you I'd go out on the town and dance the night away

Before I met you I could take a long relaxing bath and soak my worries away

Before I met you I didn't have any idea where my life was going or what I wanted to be



Now I have you My job is to raise you and it the most meaningful and fulfilling thing I've ever done

Now I have you I've gotten up before the sun and had more time in the day to live than ever before

Now I have you Money and possessions aren't my priority anymore, I'd rather spend it on family and memories

Now I have you I've gained weight and can't lose it but this body made you healthy and I'm proud of it

Now I have you I'd rather spend my spare hours making you smile and teaching you about the world

Now I have you You're too funny and beautiful for me to focus on movies or food and I don't mind

Now I have you A night in dancing in the kitchen with my family is so much more fun than a cramped nightclub

Now I have you I share my bath with you, your rubber duck or your daddy and it's still lovely

Now I have you My life has meaning and a clear path. I know what I want to be- your everything

    1. I agree with you completely. I wouldn't even change the sleepless nights from when she was first born- I may have been tired but I loved watching her eating and slowly falling asleep and it's much better than when I used to sleep for hours of the day :) xx

  7. What a lovely post - I can relate so much as I'm sure every mum can. Being a mum really does give your life purpose and fills a big hole in your life that you never even realised was there. #MaternityMondays

    1. Filling a hole is such a good way of putting it- I didn't even know I needed another piece but now she is here I finally feel as though I'm whole and my family is my life xx
