I used to...

I used to care about my car being sparkly clean and now there are baby blankets and baby jackets and baby toys spread across my back seat.

I used to worry about what I looked like and now I go to work with baby drool on my shirt, and instead of trying to get it off, I stare at it and think of my baby boy.

I used to look forward to buying myself a new pair of jeans and now I get giddy to buy a new rash guard for my little man to wear to the lake.

I used to think about work and life when I fell asleep every night and now I fall asleep thinking of how much I miss my son after I put him to bed.

I used to be able to read the news and now I am afraid to because all I can think of is how awful it would be if something happened to Grayson. I couldn't handle it if anything ever did. I wouldn't be able to go on. I have to stay away from the news.

I used to get angry at stupid things and now I find myself kinder than usual. I have always been sensitive to other's feelings but having my son has brought out the best in me like I couldn't imagine.

Being a Mom is literally the best thing that has ever happened to me. He gives everything a whole new purpose. He makes every day an amazing day.  He makes my relationship with my husband better, with my family better, with everyone better. He puts life into a different perspective for me.

Thank you, my sweet boy. No words can express how much you mean to your Dad and I.



  1. I love this post :) It's amazing how much our children change us for the better, isn't it? Grayson is adorable. I know I always say that, but it's always true!

  2. Oh my gosh, Megan! Grayson keeps getting cuter and cuter, how is that possible?! I loved reading this post! XOXO
