Definitions Change

fun

It’s 10:00 p.m. and I’m just about ready to go

My friends should be there by the time I arrive

It’s just a typical Wednesday night

The beer is 25 cents a glass, though I drink whiskey sours

Let’s dance until close, laughing and flirting the night away

 

It’s 7:30 a.m. and I’m finally going to sleep

I wake up at Noon and I’m slow to start my day

We often talk about changing how we live

But day after day, it’s the same routine

No responsibilities, so carefree and living la vida loca

 

Fast forward to today, many years later

My how life has changed

The time I used to go to bed is now the time I get up

My little girl needs to be changed and fed

It’s time for Disney, learning, and baby talk

 

We get invited to shows, parties, and other nightlife events

Most times, we decline and stay home

And most of those resounding no’s are said without regret

Some think we’ve lost our edge

Because we now prefer family nights over partying

 

But though we’ve gone from drinking on weeknights

To nightly walks with our baby and game nights with my 13 year old

That doesn’t mean we forgot how to have fun

It simply means that our definition of the word has changed

And truthfully, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.

  1. When we look back at our lives, we could not imagine our lives changing to where we are today. So many paths to decide on. Children make a vast difference on our maturity and thinking. I loved what you wrote and thank you for being an important factor for my day going better. Hugs

    I think we lead very similar lives. A peculiar phenomenon I also find myself in is that all my single, unmarried friends have fallen off the face of the earth. It must have been hard to relate when the rest of the group now has kids.

    • Yeah, we face the same thing. Even the couples we’re friends with that don’t have kids are still leading busy social lives. The kids factor is a bit much for some and to an extent, I get it. Admittedly, it does hurt though. I wouldn’t trade the life I have for my old one. I love being Mom and a wife to my amazing husband. They’re greatest blessings in my life. But, I’d be lying if I said friends growing apart doesn’t break my heart.
