Getting to Know You Friday blog Hop


What’s the one thing that surprised you most about being a parent?

I really had to think about this question for some time. When my first son was born I found out I would do just about anything for my children. My house, friends and work came in second to the needs of my children. You learn to leave the house work until later and just play the afternoon away with your children. Realizing they grow up so fast and will move away before you know it. 


  1. I too put my Daughter first. Now that she is grown and has kids of her own, she appreciates the things I did for her.

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. You really do put everything behind the needs of your children don't you? It just comes naturally.

    I think I was most surprised by the lack of sleep, lol!

  3. I was only 19 when Igot my Princess.I thought everything would be hard..but it was nothingtahn pure enjoyment ..every minute of it.She was teh best thing tahtcould happen tome and changed my life for ever for the betetr.That surprised me;)

  4. Thanks for linking up to our hop! Isn't it amazing how unconditional love gets us to do almost anything?

  5. I just love your answer. It's so true, being a parent takes precedence over everything. You would think it would come naturally to all parents but sadly this don't appear to be the case with everyone.

  6. I know this feeling all too well. I stayed at home with my daughter for 3 months when she was almost 2 and most days it would be 2 p.m. and I hadn't eaten or showered because I was taking care of her needs. LOL

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by and linking up to our blog hop!
