Parker is 7 weeks old now. The time has really flown by, it seems just like yesterday he was born!
It has recently occured to me how much my little guy motivates me. I want to do everything better. I want to get into better shape, work harder, keep my house cleaner, just be a better person in general. I'm no longer just a wife, I am a mom now. I'm Parker's mom. I find that I am less willing to settle and much more likely to stand up for myself. Things that I would have once let go without a second thought are now being dealt with in my life. I just changed car insurance because I was paying a fortune and had okay coverage. My new policy is $400 cheaper and much better. I canceled a gym membership I wasn't using - another waste of money. I should have done both a long time ago, just never took the time to do the work. A lame excuse, I know it.
I know that 2011 is going to be a great year for our family. Parker's here now and he is going to motivate us, we just can't fail the little guy. Look at this face - wouldn't you agree?
