How have your kids changed you? {Enter to win $100}


You know, growing up and even in my early twenties I never really thought much about having kids.  In fact, I don't know that I really gave it much thought until I got pregnant on my honeymoon with my first born son.  And even then, the reality of the full responsibility of what you are embarking on doesn't fully hit you until you walk out of the door of the hospital, with a new baby in tow and no one stops you.

I can remember the moment we walked into our little apartment, our newborn son in his little carseat bucket, sat him on the coffee table and looked at each other and said "now what?"

Somehow, life goes on from there.  One day at a time you transfer all of your concern, worry, time, devotion and love into this tiny little person.  You become concerned with each detail of their lives.  Are they sleeping enough?  Are they eating enough? Growing enough? Time marches on and you soon have a little person on your hands.  No longer a baby with basic needs, but a person whose feelings can be hurt, whose heart needs tending, whose mind needs filling with all the right things.

I've come to realize that whatever stage you are in with raising a child, that stage is easier than the one to come.  They only get harder.  Babies are easy: eat, sleep and fresh diapers.  Children are different.  They change you and make you into better people as YOU try to make them into good people.   The older they get the more they challenge you.  And I don't mean in a defiant way, I mean in a "why do I say/do/believe/advocate/choose this or that?" way.

As you develop their character, they develop yours.  They make you see yourself more clearly than any mirror.  From the moment they repeat "get outta the way jerk" from the back seat of your car, you begin to take a closer look at all you do.

How do you treat people?  Talk to the cashier?  Help a stranger?  Treat a homeless person?  From the moment of comprehension, having children makes you analyze who you are because they are watching and listening to you.  And soaking it all in.  And not just externally, for show but internally they begin to shape and shave the very core of who you are because children don't do as you SAY, they do as you DO.  

I know that having children has turned me into  the kind of person I am not sure I would have become on my own, without them.  Raising children well requires a certain level of forced selflessness that I am not sure comes naturally to anyone.   

I, personally, have to work hard to be selfless, putting my needs last and theirs first.  I've learned to be more patient and flexible in my expectations of others.  More eager to serve them and less needy about serving myself.   

Overall, I've learned to take a situation, almost any situation and think "Is this an issue of the heart or mind?" because that should form how you react to it.  Is someone talking this way to me because they are having a bad day or because their mom is sick or their baby is running a fever?  Being around children 24/7 makes you realize that the surface behavior may be linked to something far deeper.   Tantrums and crying fits are always linked to something more, no matter the age of the person.  There is a need there that is looking to be filled.  My kids helped me realize that this is a universal idea. 

Children have a way of causing  a lot of self-evaluation.   How well am I taking care of myself?  How long will I be able to keep up with them? How healthy is the food that I am eating?  Does it matter how it is grown?  Suddenly it really matters how long you are alive and how great the quality of that life.

Children change everything about you.  Priorities shift along with your bed time.  Suddenly a solo trip to Target sounds like just the vacation you need.  And the best part, is that is OK.  With priorities appropriately shifted to their right order, the things you thought you needed are no longer even on the list because the fulfillment of joy in someone else's life is suddenly the key to yours.   

Dreamworks' Delivery Man film focuses on this very idea of children changing you into your best self!  Watch David's journey (Vince Vaughn) as an unexpected discovery unfolds as a heartwarming story to find his long lost children and his true self.  You can bring home this hilarious and heartfelt 'Special Delivery' on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD 3/25/2014.

Whew - in every way possible? Everything you described and then also, my personality just changed without me realizing it. I got softer, which was a good (yet scary) thing. I am a very sarcastic person and I shield uncomfortableness with humor (think Chandler). I never showed real emotion other than silliness before having kids. Now, while I'm still not the most sappy person you'll meet, I will cry every now and then. I listen better. I empathize. Sometimes I don't like feeling so much because vulnerability is scary, but I know it's for the best, and it's thanks to my kids.

My oldest son was a handful from beginning. He was diagnosed with Autism at 15 months old. This little booger (ha, he's 8 now) has taught me a patience beyond what I thought I could ever have. He has also helped me learn how to care less about how people look at me and to just enjoy myself.

Kids really do show you how you come across to the world. I remember the shock the first time my daughter was behaving a way I didn't like and realizing that she was being me! That is just one of the many changes I have made over the years of parenting. They bring out your best and your worse and you help each other to be better people, that is what family is all about.

Having children has taught me patience, which was a big problem for me. You cannot be impatient with children at all, and with my new-found patience, it has made other areas of my life better, especially relationships with others. I find the care of children rewarding and watching them grow and change is wonderful.

We tried for a year to have a baby, and then finally found out we were having twins. They have changed our lives for the better. My husband and I have gotten closer to God because of the things we went through trying to get pregnant and my son being in the Nicu (5 weeks early).
We do not drink anymore, we are more patient, we both appreciate the little things in life more, and we just dedicate our lives and time to our kids. They are such a blessing and truly are the GREATEST gift!!
Thank you!!

I am much more patient since having my daughter. I think that waiting to have children until I was married for 10 years and considerably older has also helped with this. I find that I have been able to finally slow down and really enjoy life. She encourages me to live more mindfully by her total enjoyment of life.

Susan Jeffries said...

I have not seen the movie yet, but I really like Vince Vaughn's quick wit! How has my daughter changed me? How has she not changed me? I had a very emotionally unsettling pregnancy. We were poor, in school, newly married, and far from everyone else I loved. I worked full time as a labor nurse and attended grad school through my pregnancy. I really wondered if I would be a good mom. God really worked on my heart during that time. As soon as she was born, I remember dressing her in the one outfit we could afford and thinking "This is what I am supposed to do with my life. I am supposed to be her mom." I knew that she deserved so much more than I could ever give her. I knew that she deserved to know Jesus. Eight months later, my husband and I accepted Jesus as our savior and have devoted our lives to teaching our daughter to love Jesus. That's how she changed my life. Jesus sent her so I would open my heart to Him. He knew that my baby deserved a personal relationship with Him. Blessings! Susan

Amy Jo said...

My kids have changed me in ways I never thought imaginable. The biggest being my selfishness. I had no clue I was selfish, completely blind to it until I had my first baby. The second she was born and need to be fed, comforted, and kept warm by me my perception changed. After that it didn't matter what I wore, if we didn't have money for the fancy gadget I wanted, even down to things like when I had time to eat, sleep, or shower were no longer up to me. It gave me a whole new view on God's love for us and a better idea of how I needed to set myself aside in order to serve Him.

I've never had kids. I think they teach you to live in the moment.

Thanks for the contest.

I understand love so much more and the future is even more important I have a million times more patience. I also use to wish for time to fly by (growup) and now I wish it would slow down.

I appreciate the fact that my daughter has caused me to consider what the truly important things are in life. It isvery important to live day by day rather than in the future.
