It is really nice to think about the needs of my family over my own, I tend to worry less and am more disciplined at getting things done each day.
Drew loves the changes too, he tends to get more book time and fun, stimulating activities. Drew is at a fun age where every morning is like Christmas, a new day with fun toys and adventures to be explored. Drew's always jumping in his crib when I go to get him up and his eyes glisten just thinking about trains and drills and dinosaurs that are waiting to be played with.
