Things that change when you have a baby



Yes. I am guilty for subscribing to
Babycentre.com. I’m guilty for finding their articles interesting and informative especially for the ‘blur’ new parents like Izza and I. I also realized that since the arrival of Umayr, I’ve posted a lot of entries about him, babies or some what babies/family related. If all that in many ways bore you to death, I would like to apologise for that also. A trip to TMZ or Mangga Online might cheer you up.

Also baby related, today I received this article -‘42 things that change when you have a baby’ from babycenter.com. From the 42, I’ve chosen the top 10 changes that I can relate to.

3. The sacrifices you thought you made to have a child no longer seem like sacrifices.

5. You respect your parents and love them in a new way.

6. You find that your baby's pain feels much worse than your own.

10. You think of someone else 234,836,178,976 times a day.

13. You look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself.

And from our readers...

4. "You'd rather buy a plastic tricycle than those shoes that you've been dying to have." — Sophie's mom

11. "You give parents with a screaming child an 'I-know-the-feeling' look instead of a 'Can't-they-shut-him-up?' one." — Jaidyn's mom

13. "You take the time for one more hug and kiss even if it means you'll be late." — Tracey

16. You find yourself wanting to make this world a better place. — Arizona
27. You can have the most wonderful conversation using only vowel sounds like "ahhh" and "oooo." — littlehulk2008



And here I added my personal 5:

1. Nowadays I’m paying more attention to baby products TV adverts.

2. Umayr doesn’t poop regularly. And that worries me. Everyday, I would ask Izza if he’d pooped ke tidak and when he does, Izza pulak will excitedly text me! Hooray for poopies!

3. Unlike before, Izza and I hardly do things together. Dinner, solat, bath..We have to take turn doing our stuff and attending to Umayr. Even driving nowadays is boring because the co-driver is seating at the back

4. Always on time to slot out my badge card. A happier feeling when driving back home.

5. My belly seems to be happier as well. Hmmmm :(
