Who said the fun stops after having kids?

6 Aug


If someone told you the fun stops after becoming a mom, they lied!
Yes, having kids requires more responsibility and sacrifice, but it’s a lie that you can’t have fun and do things you did before. πŸ™‚

A few weeks ago, a single girlfriend asked me if life stopped once having kids.

My answer – “of course not!”

As a mom, I still hang out with friends, go to the beach, work out, act silly, go to the movies, eat out with the girls some Saturday nights, and take trips.

Yes, I am lucky to have a hubby who doesn’t mind when I leave the kids with him, and parents who will watch my kids whenever I ask.Β  But even without that, I have friends that I swap sitting with so that we don’t have to pay for sitters.

If you’re thinking of having kids but have heard that the fun ends, it’s simply not true!Β  Yes, now the fun requires more planning, but it’s so worth it!

Have those babies, honey!lol… πŸ™‚

So when is it the right time to have kids, you may be thinking?Β  (…I’ll answer that tomorrow.) Β  πŸ™‚Β  My opinion of course!Β  What are your thoughts? πŸ™‚

Be blessed!

    I totally agree, Lauren! If we quit having fun, our lives with or without children will quickly move into depression or burnout. I’m so glad that you’re addressing this issue. I don’t think it gets stated enough. Great post!

      That’s right. I’ve been in TX all week at a MOPS convention. Being a mom should never stop the fun! πŸ™‚
