Having A Baby Is Like Getting A Tattoo

Love this quote from the book “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert and I think it is hilarious, but also very true!

Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face. You really need to be certain it’s what you want before you commit,

Babies are amazing, but they are time-consuming and they will take over your life!⁣

Of course, you can still keep doing the things you love, and you don’t necessarily lose yourself! But it’s never the same with kids. It’s a new reality.⁣

Babies don’t stay babies forever, but you’re a parent forever! Even once your “baby” leaves the house, you’ll still be worrying and wondering about your kids, it’s the nature of parenthood.⁣

There’s never a “right time” to have kids. If you want them, go for it! If you don’t, that’s ok too! A face tattoo isn’t for everyone 🤣 ⁣

  1. I will say, I was not prepared for how motherhood would change me. I love my boy and yet I do not love every moment of motherhood, and I’d never recommend a face tattoo, but I also wanted to be a mother from an early age so that might be why we had kids.

  2. They are the biggest responsibility that we will ever have. The greatest joy. The greatest most pure love. THE most important thing in our life above everything, even ourselves. They will become us. Mine are all grown and married and turned out to be great human beings! Never a problem and great husbands and wife, sons and daughter and now Mom and Dad. ❤️🤱
