    My teeth need some work now, I'm far more patient and my tummy isn't very pretty. Not that it ever was, it's just a horrible shape now. My tastes in food have changed, I now like tomatoes!

    I have discolouration above my lip as well. can never quite conceal it properly and my youngest is 2 now and it's not fading any.

    I have more grey hairs (it's the kids, not ageing, I swear), I'm more tired compared to friends of the same age with no children.

    Greater appreciation for my parents. Everything I do is for the kids (apart from the 2-3 times a year we go out with out them, and even then that benefits them when we are happier).

    I can't stand the smell of aloe vera dish washing detergent, which is what we were using when I was sick pregnant with DD.

    I am much less focused on my appearance.

    I used to love drinking alcohol on weekends/socially, now I barely drink at all.

    I spend hardly any money on myself...and it doesn't bother me!

    I get moved and cry much easier at stuff I see on TV.

    *ahem* I really don't like my nipples being touched at all anymore

    I don't think much has changed body wise, in taste, dislikes or likes really.

    I am not so good with blood nowadays, never used to bother me but now the site of it makes me cringe and gag. I'm not so good watching the bloody medical shows I used to love watching.

    I don't spend as much on myself because I have realised I dont need too and my boys needs are met before mine, I go without if I have too.

    I don't go out much at night anymore such as girls nights out, big nights out drinking etc and don't miss them either. We much prefer going to family friendly events and rarely go out without the boys.

    I used to be so sure of myself, my values, goals, qualities .....these days I don't even know who I am anymore.

    Ha - I just realised how I came up with my username!!😉

    My super curly hair is just slightly wavy now (so happy to have lost the frizz). No more judging other mums now I am one. I've realized every one is just doing the best they can.

    1) I am always in bed by 8 (even my Mum has started calling me Granny)

    2) I used to love horror movies and now can't watch them they freak me out.

    3) Hated veggies now they must be in every meal

    4) I get more worked up and emotional about things, like I will argue about changes in our community and things like that when before I never even paid attention

    5) I no longer make random purchases on myself, always on DH or the children

    I can't watch horror movies anymore either! Or violent shows and movies.

    I think having kids really changed my priorities.

    I don't enjoy going out as much as I used to.

    Physically: My boobs are gone
    My hair is nowhere near as healthy and doesn't seem to hold colour very well.
    I get the occasional pimple now.
    But even with those three physical changes, I actually respect and love my body more than ever.

    Emotionally: My sex drive has gone MIA.
    I am less social; I'm content with DH and DD's company.
