You guys are making me really appreciate my showering time. I had almost forgotten how difficult it was to just carve out time for a quick shower without the hysterics that were a direct result.

We've done a ton of small roadtrips with minimal issues. The only bad one was when Silas was 7 months old and deathly afraid of the carseat. So he screamed the entire way to New Orleans and then we bought a dvd player on the ride home and felt like the worst parents ever for doing so. (it saved our sanity and looking back, I don't regret it at all!)

I think most of the changes had already happened. I changed a lot between about 24 and 28, became more interested in other people, got to know myself, started working to support myself etc. When I got pregnant, 30 years old, we had already quit going out much, and moved to a really kid-friendly neighbourhood (at least it's nice for small kids, not that great for schools).

Since having R, I think the biggest difference is that I have this great source of joy. I'm one of those ridiculous parents who is all "wow! my kid did/said something!" and it just makes me so happy having him.
