The other night, Hubby and I were doing the usual – sitting on the couch, watching TV while on our computers. Romantic, I know. Hehe. A silly pic came up on my Facebook feed; and I commented on how I thought it was kind of immature. Zubair looked at me and replied, “Well, you know, Babe – you ARE kind of boring now.” WHAT? Me?
Amused, I inquired about what he meant. He went on to explain that I don’t really do anything wild and crazy… So we looked through all my Facebook pics to see if I could make an argument against his. It turns out I used to do more “fun” stuff BZ – before Zoe. But I guess that depends on your definition of “fun”.
I feel like I’m still the same fun-loving adventurous person. So what’s up? Does motherhood really make me boring?
If I was really THAT boring, I would have nothing to write about, right? And I’m the one that always wants to do something exciting on the weekends, when he just wants to hang out at home. Yeah, I’m always asking if he wants to go to the museum, go shopping – fun stuff like that. Not sure if that’s helping my case…
In all seriousness, life has totally changed for me. I don’t like being away from Zoe for that long. I miss her when I go to Target for an hour.
And since we’re still pretty new to LA, it’s not like I have a list of people I can call up asking if they want to go out. Even if I did have a little black book – I wouldn’t use it. I like staying home and doing things with my family now. I was never the regular bar-hopping, clubbing type anyway.
And if that makes me boring, then so be it! I love my life.
What about you? Are you still fun now that you have kids?
