Becoming a mother has changed so many things about me. Some were expected:
1 – I don’t have much time for TV – sorry peeps, I know NOTHING of Game of Thrones
2– I don’t remember the last time I saw a movie. Wait, yes I do. It was Sex and the City 2. Don’t judge! The movie was meh but, the fashion was Ah-mazing!
There have been other changes that I didn’t see coming:
1 – The water works. I am far too emotional and the simplest things bring me to tears. I’m like a leaky faucet. Not my best quality, I’m sure.
2 – My style. I can no longer rock the dry clean only items. These special pieces are taking a sabbatical. Otherwise, I am asking for trouble! There will be stains people. Fruit, paint, you name it!
I tend to roll with machine washable only please. I still stay away from mostly white getups; I’m not that brave yet.
I’ve also learned my lesson about pretty, dainty jewelry. They’re a no-no around my curious toddler. He likes to grab anything and everything around mommy’s neck or ears. He needs to closely inspect them. Maybe it’s because I have a rough and tumble boy. I don’t know. I just know that chunky jewelry is the way to go for me. The man-child doesn’t know his own strength and his “gentle” touches can easily result in mommy’s broken necklace. He showed his super strength on a necklace the hubs bought me for our anniversary. I’d worn it all of a few weeks before it was broken. Womp!
So for my neckwear I’ve learned, the chunkier, the better! As for the ears, when around my baby boy, mama rocks studs… A LOT!
