changed. You really see how much things change when you have kids. At this time, on this lovely October weekend a few years ago we were on our way to some major festivities, partying with some major alcohol involved. Now...we were not drunks as some of my ex friends stated through the grape vine - b***** . We were just young, dumb and ready for fun. We did not have any cares in the world and it was a very free time for hubby and I.
Growing up in the Bay Area the Fleet Week/Columbus Day weekend activities are huge. With these activities and the weather usually being kick ass there was always so much to do and so much fun doing it. The festivities would start on Friday as we would meet for after work cocktails at our local hang out. Saturday mornings we would get up *little hungover* and pack the cooler and work are way to friends roof tops or Crissy Field in order to see the Blue Angels fly through the crystal blue skies of the city.
Sooooooo whattt the f*** happened to this awesomely idealistic weekend...a baby that is what happened. Have you tried to go to an event like this with a toddler..it sucks I mean I love my little bear but damn she comes with so much crap that it becomes a pain to go anywhere in the city on this weekend. Last year we decided to venture in town for the Columbus Day Parade with LDG who was only 9 months at the time. We were done by the time we got all her crap out of the car...let alone trying to maneuver a hummer of a stroller through the crowded city streets full of drunk ass people yelling woohooo in your ears every two seconds *yep that was me a few years ago* - Exxceelllent.
I guess I sometimes get a little melancholy about those carefree days....I don't miss the drama but I do miss how things seemed a little easier and less complicated. Then I just look at my little one and realize that I wouldn't change a thing......
