    Writing out a to do list, and ticking everything off of it.

    I second appreciating wet and dirty nappies. Every change gives me a sense of satisfaction and reassurance after fighting off the midwives and the feeling of inadequacy their breastfeeding "advice" left me with.

    Going ANYWHERE on a whim. It cannot happen anymore... because even if the place is kid-friendly, I have to make sure she's dress appropriately, I have enough money to cover her as well, she's gone to the toilet before we leave, etc etc.

    Also "days off." Days off aren't exactly "days off" when you still have to do a million things for someone else.

    Time to myself. I've always needed time alone, even before kids, so I realise now that I totally took that for granted.

    I think this is why I'm thriving in full time work. I get 10 hours a day (includes travel time), 5 days a week, where I escape the chaos of parenthood. I'm so much happier now that I'm working.

    Pretty much everything.

    I am far less judgemental now than I was in my 20's. I appreciate that life has a way of teaching us the harsh truth. Some face it earlier than others but in the end we learn we are no better or more deserving than anybody else no matter our background or situation.
