We just booked a hotel for a visit and we did something I’ve never done before … we asked the hotel to place a crib in the room. Take a look at this room. Does it look like it should have a crib in it? Nope. Will it have a crib in it? Yep!
One of my biggest fears is losing myself when our family adds a kid to the mix. I do want to raise children, but I do not want to become the dowdy mom in the wrinked yoga pants that only goes to kid-friendly restaurants.
When you tell folks that you’re going to add a kid to the mix you get a lot of, “Oh! How wonderful! Kids really change your life” as if that’s a good thing. Will some things change? Yes. Will everything change? I hope not. I love who I am and where we are as a family. It’s a huge step for me to add a crib to the mix, though it’s empty now, but I think it’s a good step. I’m figuring out how to bring a kid into our world. I’m sure there will be many other small steps but I’m looking forward to things being different not worse.
