Aloha Friday

It's Friday once again and time to celebrate! Woohoo! Kailani at An Island Life has a really fun meme. It's a great way to link up, hop around new blogs, and find some new friends. All you do is post a simple question on your blog and go answer other people's questions on their blogs! So, you can just go to that link to find other Aloha Friday questions on other blogs, too! Cool, huh? :)

Question Of the Week
 What one thing do you think has changed the most about you since you became a parent?
My Answer:
I think the most noticeable change is my openness with my emotions. I used to be very reserved emotionally.  Now that I am a Mama, I feel like I have so much love, especially for my children and the Hubs, that I can't help but show it. It's an amazing feeling! (I know part of it is probably hormones, too, but we won't even go there! lol!)
I just uploaded these pics I took earlier today and they are possibly the funniest pictures I've taken of the boys yet so, I have to post them. I can't help myself.
I snapped these pics while sitting a little bit behind them so, I really had no idea what was going on until I looked at these just now. lol!

Deep thoughts

I'm more tired. We get plenty of sleep and sometimes for four hours a time. But it's only FOUR HOURS at a time. I miss getting eight hours. And sometimes it's only 2 hours.

Other than that? I think I feel more complete, like if I were to die tomorrow, I've really contributed something - because I know my daughter is going to make a difference in the world.

I look like a wreck! I am usually so busy getting kids dressed, fed, diapered and bathed that I don't do anything but throw on sweats and pull my hair up. No make up, no time...

I remember a time that I thought about my outfit, make up and hair. A time when I spent money to get my hair colored and straightened. Ah, good times.

The thing that has changed the most if the appreciation of my parents. I now see what they went through with their choices to give the best to my brother and I.

I'm with TheAngelForever - I think the thing that's changed most is my appreciation for my parents. Especially considering they had 4 kids all close in age, and my handful is an only child! ;)

I became a mother many years ago so since that time my looks have changed (more gray in my hair) my outlook on life has changed (in past wanted all to go fast now slowing down a bit) my humor has changed ( I now laugh at the things that would make me upset in the past) so many things have changed in the 22 years of being a parent

Ms Bibi said...

I became more outspoken, more involved. I became overprotective and ready to strike within seconds,lol.

And of course tired and broke

What adorable photos.

Less sleep.

Danielle said...

I have more patience now than I did before I had a child. I've been a mom for over 12 years now and looking back, I see that more than anything, I have grown up along with my daughter. The views that I had 12 years ago are no where close to the views that I have now.

very cute. Probably that I look like poo more often and don't care. Its noon and still no shower in sight.

But I also never knew that my heart could swell and love this much.

Oh and the gross stuff I NEVER thought I'd have to do... :)

I'm not a parent yet. I can't imagine the changes and happiness of having children! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have an awesome weekend! :)

Lori said...

My strongest desire is that I pass my faith in Christ on to my child. I realized the desperate need for him through being a parent.

Also, I get a LOT less sleep now!!

What has changed the most since becoming a parent is my awareness of my surroundings.
I have also noticed that I don't buy anything for myself...I will go to a store to find something for me and then find myself in the little girls section.
I love being a parent more than anything in the world. :)

I have more patience but I weigh more, I have zero style any more and all I want to do is sleep.

Megan said...

Not a parent but your kiddos are adorable! =)

Melissa said...

What's changed the most? My definitions of words.

Party: 10-12 8 year olds running around screaming

Fun: Sleeping in on a Saturday morning past 9am

Anti-depressant: Having a bad day and coming home to three little ones who greet you like you're Hannah Montana. :)

Rach said...

I'm not a parent yet, so you'll have to ask me again in a few years time!

Vicki said...

The thing that changed the most was that having children opened up a whole new world of love, separate from any other love I'd felt before.

the way I see things!!much diferrent.Thru their eyes! so sweet and everything is new

Buzzfloyd said...

The amount of change is amazing. I think one of the biggest for me is that I have become so much less judgemental - being a parent is very humbling, and makes me realise that people may be struggling with things I can't imagine, and that everyone is doing the best they can with the information and resources they have at the time. So I am happier about my own parents now as well as other people!

In other changes - let's just say that my verification word of 'bowel' is surprisingly apt. Does anyone else now find themselves having whole conversations about poo?
