Um. I have had the complete opposite experience. As an ACTUAL former type-a, anal retentive, utterly organized, ridiculously crafty and cute person, I've turned into a VIRTUALLY type-a, anal retentive, utterly organized, crafty and cute person. Meaning: It's all in MY HEAD now. Those traits are there. Ready to emerge and shine with the right amount of time, sleep, and funds. If given a magic wand, I'm certain I'd be able to facilitate the former me with a sprinkle of mommy dust.
But alas, I can't. I'm too engaged in a round of "Please stop running with a pen and let me put your pants on... " or "Sure I'm a full time working mom, but yes, sign me up to bring tacos for the teachers luncheon or read books to a class in which my child is not in.... I have alllllllll the time in the world."
In essence, what I'm saying is, most days, I'm not sure I have necessarily improved with motherhood.
(Have you?) My life on the other hand, that's a completely different story. It's better in every way.
Today, my sweet friend Debi of The Truth About Motherhood has asked me to share my 10 Truths About Motherhood for her 2nd anniversary. (Happy Anniversary!). I adore this woman and her blog, and am so very honored she asked me to contribute.
What's your one truth about motherhood? Have you personally "improved" because of it?
