When i was pregnant for the first time, i read a book called babyville. That book is about parenthood; about a couple who defined their life as BG and AG. G stands for George, their baby boy. So BG is Before George and AG is After George. Funny stuff aside, life does change with children. Even with one child. Similarly (but sadly) life also morphes with the departure of 1 (or worse: both) parent. The dynamics of the family shifted. So with one full time and one part time parent, our kids have had to adjust their expectations. I pity them, but shit happens. I feel strangely detached from what was before; kids included. My love for them is unconditional. No question about that but i am now learning to be a dad-mom 6 days a week on top of being a mom 7 days of the week. They might eventually think that i am no fun and daddy is all fun fun fun. Mommy is about bedtime, homework and rules. Daddy now means nice lunches, toys, gadgets and video games.
