I feel like I have had a unique and cool life so far. I taught in Russia, graduated from college, spent time in Paris during tourist attacks, hiked in the Amazon and lived in Japan. Though I have done and accomplished a lot, being a married with a baby is far more important and fulfilling than everything else I have ever done. Did those things prepare me to be a mom? I believe so. But, still, if I had to choose between my crazy fun life before baby and my life now? Not even a choice. Being a wife and a mother is easily that best thing I have ever done.
