Friday Five – Things I said I’d never do

First and foremost, happy Friday!

Today I decided to go ahead and tell you that there are many things that I’ve said I’d never do, and yet, here I am, doing them.

1.  Be “one of those brag moms.”  You know the ones.  The moms who post and share about a trillion pictures of their baby doing the exact same thing over and over again.  And yet, here I am.  Oh, motherhood, how you’ve changed me.
2.  Let the baby dictate my schedule.  I’ve heard many people say, “that’s just what you say until you have kids” and I shook my head at them and told them that my baby would always be on a routine and my life would be full of rules and strict schedules.  Then I had a baby.  The end.

3.  Stay in no matter how old/busy/tired I am. I always said I’d still go out.  Then I got pregnant.  And tired.  And old.  And busy.  Did I mention I go to bed by 9:30pm these days?
4. Stop working out when I had a baby.  Then I realized that if I have an extra 30 minutes during my day, I’d rather spend it with Peanut.  I still continue to take walks and get some workouts here and there when she naps, but honestly, I still choose Peanut over a run/pump/etc.  Maybe later.

5.  Let my emotions get the better of me.  There’s just nothing I can do.  Seeing my little Peanut smile or grab something for the first time brings tears of pride and joy.  Watching her recognize me when I come to pick her up at daycare breaks my heart.  When did I become such an emotional mess?

One of my favorite bloggers, Marriage Confessions, recently posted about Instagram.

So, because I’m my own person and don’t give in to peer pressure, I joined.
