and then I had kids!
Before I had kids, I owned a 2003 Ford Focus in midnight blue. I'd wake up one morning, and feel like going to the beach. I wouldn't think twice about it, off I'd drive to Long Beach!
Now, I wake up in the morning and I feel like going to the beach. I ask Ari if he wants to go to the beach.
"Yes!" He says enthusiastically.
But then he refuses to put his pants on.
As much as I love to be spontaneous, these days I tend to do it with pants on.
With kids, things require planning. Here's what I think of planning:
I just want to grab my bag and go. I don't want to think about diapers, wipes, water, food, toys. Okay my brain hurts.
But I wonder, is there a way to maintain spontaneous while having kids?
