So (roughly) a year ago this was the situation:
This was taken after work so I’m surprised I hadn’t collapsed with exhaustion already! Even without pregnancy tiredness, I was always tired. Pooped. Knackered. Worn out. That’s just what teaching does to me!
And then a year later, this is my life:
For the purposes of this post, I love that this picture was taken at my school (and the previous photo from when I was still at work – get my drift?). I visited school for the royal wedding celebrations… see this post from last week. And it’s just great that the photo dates are exactly one year apart – total happy coincidence.
Life has changed incredibly. Awesomely.
I had this realisation on Tuesday night (how random, why then??) that I had always thought when people said their lives had changed by having children, that they meant the practical, day-to-day stuff. Because that’s the only thing that I could comprehend pre-baby. And of course those things do all change! But actually it’s so much more than that. I have changed. I’m a different person. My life has changed in ways I don’t even understand.
But as you can see in that second photo, I’m loving it 🙂
