Husband has two shows this weekend, so it's just the prince and me hanging out. What's better than snuggling up with a book on a snowy day? Snuggling up with a baby; he is a furnace! I would get around to painting, but I want to open the windows to ventilate, so instead we're having tummy time together today. And I can't help but get pulled into playing with this guy.

Well, around here, nobody puts the baby in the corner.
I'm sure I'll have plenty of times that I'll be desperate for Wade to be occupied so I can get things done, but being a mom has been vastly different from the way the world portrayed it to me. I'm glad. My life has changed drastically, but for the better. I'm a different person. Unscrubbed bathrooms and disheveled closets don't taunt me anymore. Painted toe nails and ironed blouses are no longer necessary components of my day. I still clean, I still get ready, I still like making life beautiful - but the emphasis has altered, old activities no longer fulfill me the same way, even if I still get great enjoyment from them. I've learned that baby smiles are the most beautiful thing - prettier than an immaculate house or a couture outfit. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have it all, but since I can't I'm making sure that I'm getting the best things in first...everything else can fall in place behind.
How have your priorities changed along with life changes? What are your most important things now? What are the things that have been fallen to the back of the line?
