Life with and without Kids
So I have been thinking and talking to Daniel and my friends lately about this topic. I thought it would be interesting to talk about on my blog. We had Olivia a month after we had been married 2 years. 2 years is not that long. Olivia was a surprise. Our original plans were to get pregnant maybe 3-4 years down the road in our marriage when we were done with school...everyones plan right? Luckily, she changed our plans otherwise we wouldn't have known such happiness and pretty sure we wouldn't have had Harrison right off the bat either.
But before we had kids, I can't even remember our lives. I mean, I can remember vacations, bad days, and blurry days at work, but the actual routine of waking up, eating, driving to work and school have been erased. I don't remember my thoughts or what I worried that much about. I don't even know what I spent my money on or why my house was ever messy. Even why the laundry never got done! It was just to the two of us. Isn't it funny how one small human being can totally change that all. And even change our plans for the future by us wanting to have another one so soon after. Just my thoughts at the moment and I am incredibly blessed that our "plans" never worked out.
