9x18 Baby Green board with Charcoal text
If I hadn't had children, I probably would have had more money and material things.
I probably would have gone more places, gotten more sleep and pampered myself more. My life would have been much more boring and predictable.
As a result of being a parent, I have laughed harder and cried more often. I have worried more and hurried more. I've had less sleep, but somehow I've had more fun. I've learned more and grown more. My heart has ached harder, and I've loved to a capacity beyond my imagination. I've given more of myself, but I've derived more meaning from life.
