Tales From A Twin Mom:
Text Messaging After Having Kids
Marriages change. Text messages change. Kids change things for us. It doesn’t matter how many children you have. Once the regular routine starts kicking in and you find yourself with small human beings that depend on you for everything, change is inevitable. As I sit here and look at my phone, I can’t help but laugh as I see with my own eyes how the text messages between my husband and I have changed over the years. Conversations sometimes turn into one word exchanges and Emojis are now taking over. Don’t believe me? See for yourself…
Conversations turn to sh*t
Literally. Once you pop out a bundle of joy the never ending poop conversations start. If you were shy about talking about your bowel movements at one point that ship has longed sailed…
As your kids get older the conversations just get crazier. A good sense of humor is essential some days…
Who can forget the time you just needed to go to the bathroom alone?
Sexy messages don’t have the same effect.
Whether it’s coming from him- or her, it’s just not the same. Not to mention, we don’t have the same time to “maintenance” ourselves like we use to!
What was once considered cute might start being annoying (but please don’t let that stop you).
You might want to be a little more careful when your kids get older. I guess this is where I should put #Awkward.
Our dark sides comes out.
Remember what it was like to be a little angry and then give in for a night of passionate love making? Yeah- you can forget about that. Instead, just be careful. Very careful.
Most importantly, be quick on your feet after putting your foot in your mouth.
But at the end of the day, I bet I speak for many couples when I say that we wouldn’t have it any other way.
