Before and After Kids #Motherfunny
After hours of being with the baby, I need something funny to lighten my mood. My favorite new place to get my laughs is NickMom.com and NickMom programming on Nickelodeon. In the spirit of NickMom, I created this list of the Top 7 Things About Working from Home that are different before and after kids.
In the time before the baby, or B.B., our house was clean and organized, we were able to come and go as we pleased, trips to Target weren’t planned around how much I could carry in a stroller, and our dog was the center of attention.
What they don’t tell you when you have an infant as a work-at-home-mom, is that your bathroom breaks become an audience with the precious little princess in the porcelain throne room.
Top 7 Things About Working from Home that are different before and after kids
Before kids: My title was simply “fashion blogger.”
After kids: My title is now mom, mommy blogger, fashion blogger, butt wiper, and food processor.
Before kids: Trips to the bathroom were leisurely, and I could bring a magazine with me if I wanted to!
After kids: Now I have company whenever I go, and bowel movements have to be quick, efficient, and stealthy like a ninja.
Before kids: The contents of our living room were as follows: couches x2, lamps, television, coffee table.
After kids: The contents of our living room are as follows: couches x2, lamps, television, coffee table, mobile, pack n’ play, approximately a half dozen lost pacifiers, breast pump, assorted milk stains
Before kids: I was able to type with two hands.
After kids: Now, I have to type with 1.
Before kids: I was able to style my outfits from my entire closet.
After kids: I am limited to tops that allow me to whip out a boob on a moments notice. Sexy.
Before kids: My dog woke up in the middle of the night to go pee.
After kids: My dog wouldn’t think of wasting an opportunity to sleep.
Before kids: I thought I would hear my cell phone ringing when it wasn’t.
After kids: I think I hear my baby crying when she isn’t. Then, I still hear my cell phone “not” ringing. That didn’t go away.
