Words have a habit of taking on different meanings and associations from different circumstances or points of view. Becoming a parent isn’t just a change, it’s massive reconstructive surgery for your life. “Disposable” is just one of the words with multiple definitions and associations that may undergo a shift. “Monitor” may once have had something to do with a computer, but post-baby it takes on an entirely different meaning. Words that were once naughty can become nice, as in “Do you know where he hid his other bootie?” or “Look at how long this nipple is! Will it fit on our bottles?”
There’s probably a long, hilarious list of examples I could give, but honestly, the majority of the time I’ve spent putting together this post, I’ve had hiccups so massive that Tesla could have figured out how to power New York with the kinetic energy. EVERY 6-10 SECONDS! I timed it! Very distracting! ARG!!! Of course, you may be wondering now if this has something to do with the post and if I’m going to cleverly tie it all back in somehow. Uhhhh yeah, sorry about that whole anticlimactic disappointment thingy.
Anyways… when you’ve got a little munchkin of your own, trust me, it’s worth every redistributed penny and every plastic sack of “previously loved” diapers. For those rare moments when it doesn’t seem like it’s worth it, just remember that there’s no going back. Resignation can be a big comfy blanket you can smother yourself with when you need to.
