What we took for granted.
Big thank you to Tabitha Hidalgo for inspiring this post. What do you realize now that you took for granted before having a child? I know we all have a long list, but pick one or two. Here are mine:
The trip to the grocery store, whether I needed 1 thing or 100 things. Going any time of the day. Being able to just zip on down to the store to get something I was craving. Finishing my entire list in one shot.. etc..etc...etc.
Going for a drive.. a long one with the radio really loud. Charlie loves being in the truck but of course I have to be aware of the volume with his little ears. I miss just hopping in the car, cranking up the music and singing my lungs out.
Neither of those two things compare to the instant deep profound love I have for my son.. but they are definitely things I took for granted. What about you?
