Before Porter, life really was so different, not better or worse, but different. 
BUT, there are those "little things" that were so easy back then...

- Taking a shower. You know how many times a week I get to actually ENJOY a shower? Usually not once. It's hard to take your time in there when you have a toddler climbing things, spilling things, coloring on things, getting into things...

- Eating, in peace. Porter is about as bad a dog when it comes to begging for food. He sees you eating something, he wants it. RIGHT NOW. And if you don't want to give him it, he freaks out. So I have to sneak junk food so it doesn't end up in his little paws...

- Sleeping in. This rarely happens these days. P's up by 8-8:30 almost every day, sometimes earlier. Hello mornings.

- Taking 2 minutes to get out the door. Yeah right. More like 15 these days. Longer when he decides he's gonna run circles around the kitchen island in order to avoid getting his shoes or coat on. I can't wait until summer, the kid's gonna be barefoot 24/7, haha.

- Speaking of getting out the door- there's no just running to the store quick at midnight. Or anytime. It's either an ordeal, or doesn't happen. 

- Work? Ha. You know how much it sucks being a single parent and having to plan a babysitter 4-5 times a week most weeks? Especially when I work mostly nights and my schedule changes from week to week. UGH. 

- Clean carpet. Doesn't exist in my life. Probably won't for another 16 years.

- Cartoons then= Family Guy, American Dad, South Park. Cartoons now= Sesame Street, Thomas the Tank Engine, Angelina Ballerina (yeah, P likes it...who knows, haha). 

Alright, we'll end the list there. And i'm not complaining, not at all. Just pointing out :)

And then he walks into the room like this, and I wonder what I even did before him...
