Max approved brownies. I subbed veggie oil for coconut oil. They are pretty yummy, just not as fluffy as I would like. #brownies #homebaked #toddlerapproved #maximus
I have seen your cries of frustration all over Facebook. You hate being told that things will be different “when you grow up” or that you’ll “change your mind” about having kids as you get older. I get that, I would hate hearing those things as well. But the thing about all of those articles or buzzfeed lists that upsets me as a mom is that you ladies really don’t like hearing us say two things: “My life has changed since becoming a mom” and “I am happier now”. Well ladies, I only have one thing to say about that… GET OVER IT. I won’t harp on anyone for not having kids, I don’t want to discredit anyone else’s happiness, so don’t do it to mine. The truth is, I am personally happier now as a mom then I have ever been and my life has changed. I feel I am a much better person, and a lot less selfish. You childless women can feel this way too, I am not saying you can’t, I am just saying that when that 7lb little bundle of joy came into my world, is when my life started to change.
In short, my happiness has nothing to do with yours. Stop trying to take it away. And, maybe tell the others who are accusing you of not being mature, to grow up themselves. Having a kid does not always equal adulthood just like having a career doesn’t always equal adulthood.
We are fighting sleep tonight. I love my sweet boys smile. #atleastheishappy #maximus #whentoddlersdontsleep #100happydays
