A sense of mortality!

Isn't it funny the way which having Children change's us!

I'm not just talking about the head on collision with gravity ( boobs, bum and tum!)
The inability to drink more than 1/2 a glass of wine without feeling smashed!
The loss of all sense of time! I only gave birth yesterday, so she cant be 20months already!....Yet haven't i known her all my life!
Nor the complete loss of marbles.....
Supermarket cashier - '' that will be £65 please madam''
Me - ''Bollox I've left my purse at home!''
'' Shit and my door keys!''
'' F**k AND my phone!''
And I'm not even going to mention the complete lack of fitness and the near coronary attack after walking 1/2 mile up a 90degree hill to wait 20mins in the cold with a bad tempered baby for Nanny to come home with a spare key!

I'm talking about an inability to watch horror/ disaster movies without balling my eyes out and having nightmares for a week!......even if the film is really crap or supposed to be funny!
Because i do not want my baby to drown in a tidal wave, get eaten by a vampire or turn into a zombie!

I totally agree! Now, if I see a movie where a child is sad, hurt or in trouble, I automatically assume my child is the child and take it very personally! Let me tell you, it doesn't stop. My children are 10 and 12 yrs. and I still can't handle it. They change us in so many ways.

OMG-I do the exact same thing with scary movies now!! It sucks cause they were always my favorite. I watch 20 minutes of one now and have to go check on the kids 10 times...then spend the next few days worried about zombies and attacks. What would I do with my kids if it happened to us?
Glad to know I'm not the only one.
