How Having My Children Has Changed Me. I thought I would write something a little different.So what makes me the person that I am today? My children of course. Would I be who I am today without them? 100% no. They have changed me so much for the better as a person, a daughter and a wife. They have also massively changed the way I view the world that they will old in. Decisions I thought I wouldn’t have made before becoming a mum have altered.
My mummy skills came into play at the age of 23. A young mum by some standards. It was so odd being the first of all my friends to have a baby, they went clubbing, out for drinks after work, I changed nappies and mopped up sick. Would I change any of that? Most definitely not. Don’t get me wrong I still had a social life just not the same as before, nor did I crave it as much. My priorities had changed. So as you guessed by the #bigfamily I didn’t stop at 1 child, by the age of 27 I was blessed with another 2 little munchkins my pink princesses, I now refer to them as my big’s.
Fast forward a few years to me turning 35, Lucas my little gem arrived. Such a caring little munchkin with long surfer dude hair, he captures everyone’s hearts that he meets.
16 months later and probably the biggest shock of all, I found out I was pregnant with my twins. What a massive but amazing shock, 3 under 16 months, but as us mums do, I just got on with it. Mason & Logan are identical bundles of fun. Constantly on the go, so cuddly but yet full of mischief.
I have learnt so much about myself being a parent. My tolerance levels have changed so much, I can survive on little sleep, material items don’t hold as much value. Family is what matters, learning together, laughing together, sharing special moments, wiping the tears after a bad day and making it all right with a tight hug.
Have you changed much as a person since having your children, or do you view the world differently now that you have matured and grown?
