I was one of those who waited...I waited 9 years before diving into the deep end...you know, parenting. We lived our 20's, worked hard, played hard, got into debt, paid it off. We flew to NYC one year on Christmas Day and had brunch at the Waldorf-Astoria. Life was...well, all about what we were into and working. It was fun, real fun. Then I turned 30...I was ready. Our precious little girl Sydney came along the day before my 31st birthday (the BEST present ever!) and then Sean was born almost 3 years later. They have changed everything. It didn't help either that Todd and I decided to get mobile and move 3 times in the last 3 years! Yeah, we have had A LOT of change. Forget the change of addresses, I have changed. I don't want to buy clothes for me...I want to buy for them. I don't care about gifts for me...I want to take Syd to Disney on her 5 year old birthday (it's free this year on your birthday!) Disney is killing me...we have to have ALL the princess stuf - DVD's, dresses - ALL of it! Sean has more little cars and trucks - I can't stop! All of this to say that my parents took us to hear the ASO on New Year's Eve and it was fabulous. But, all I could think about was how I wanted Sydney and Sean to hear it and experience it. It will never be the same and I don't care. Life is more of an adventure now and there are no blue-prints. For those Seinfeld fans, "I'm out there, baby, and I'm loving it!"
