Today call me low, because I’m at Aiming Low sharing a few discoveries I made after becoming a mom; certain unexpected benefits I’ve embraced since welcoming two free-loading human beings into my household.
I mean, we all acknowledge that no matter how they enter the family, kids are a life-changers, right? It’s glorious and strange, beautiful and hard to be a parent. Blah blah blah. This we know.
But there were advantages to becoming a mother that I didn’t read about in my copy of What to Expect When You’re Expecting.

And if you’re really lucky, your kids will be around to foul-up your house for the better part of two decades.
