Since motherhood - is there anything you find yourself doing that you would never have done before?

I find myself being late more. I try to leave early and get places on time, but it's so darn hard to get the kids moving and out the door on time. Even to work, I make it just on time every day I hate to be late.

Like you I find I am always late no matter how hard I try and when I do make it on time I feel like I have won a gold medal at the Olympics in child wrestling.

I was never very vocal or confident before I had kids, now that I have four, my confidence has soared about everything in life. I'm not pushy, but my opinion is made known, especially about the welfare of my kids. I'm a much better advocate for my kids than I ever thought I could be.
I'm also always late now, and can't believe that hotdogs and mac n cheese can be considered a "meal" many days a week

I can't believe how much I love my mini van or the fact that I want a 12-passenger!

Never ever thought I would change diapers for 7 years straight (and counting).

Never thought I would not have time to keep my body in shape.

Never thought I would have to battle the public school system.

There's alot of things I didn't plan for when I started having children but I still wouldn't change a thing.

I never thought that I would look forward to cleaning the bathroom, just for the solitude. I never thought I would homeschool, I wanted to be a teacher.
