It is my husbands birthday today and in honor of such I thought I’d do a blog post regarding birthdays as adults, to make it more fun I figured we’d compare a birthday with kids versus birthdays before kids! Please comment below with anything you can think of that has changed on your birthdays since having kids!
Before kids- We’d wake up at a decent time or maybe even sleep in because it’s our birthday, we do what we want
After kids- we wake up to kids crying on the monitor and at an ungodly hour
Before kids- getting dressed to impress to show off how you only get better with age
After kids- pajamas and a face mask to preserve what you’ve got left
Before kids- let’s go out and dance the night away!
After kids- let’s stay in and have a dance off with the kids!
Before kids- 20 friends at a bar or club all in celebrations of you
After kids- your spouse and kids hugging you because they truly are celebrating you!
Before kids- we’d drink from sundown to sunup in celebrations of another year older
After kids- There might be a drink or two but I’m in bed by midnight
Before kids- night ends with cleaning up beer bottles
After kids- night ends with cleaning up toys and doing dishes
Before kids- you may pass out from having one to many
After kids- you will pass out…from pure exhaustion
Before kids- presents might of contained expensive electronics or bottles of liquor!
After kids- presents are homemade scribbles on a piece of paper saying I love you!
Before kids- your night might end with a sloppy kiss from a stranger
After kids- your night most definitely will end with a sloppy kiss from your babies
Before kids- you don’t look a day older!
After kids- you look like you’ve aged 5 years over night
Cake…nope that is the exact same…we all love cake.
Things have certainly changed but I’d like to think for the better and we wouldn’t have it any other way…well, depending how the kids are behaving….
