Who Knew

Things I never knew until I had a baby:

--I CAN be unselfish. My needs and wants will never again be the first to come to mind and I wouldn't have it any other way.

--I no longer loathe mornings. I use to moan and groan at the sound of an alarm; ready to dredge away at a boring job.  Now I wake to the sound (usually) of a cheery baby cooing, screeching and laughing. Seeing her smile from ear to ear at the sight of my face omits any drowsiness and grump.

--I can use the bathroom using only 1 arm, while holding a child in the other.  Getting the pants pulled back up and buttoned/zipped is tricky.  But I'm a pro now!
--I can maneuver a shopping cart around the store using only 1 hand, while holding a napping child. NOT an easy task.
--One little giggle dissipates crummy attitudes.

--I would become "one of those" that share stories and pics of my baby with anyone willing to look and/or listen.

--I can cook--chop, stir, open cans, etc. with 1 hand while holding another curious person, hiked up on my hip, watching in awe.
--I have become an ambidextrious eater; simultaneously feeding her with 1 hand and myself with another.
--I would be content spending endless hours on the ground playing, crawling, singing, and laughing and never want to do anything else but this.
--I could be patient.
