Before you had a kid, the only reason you would text your other half during work hours would be to tell him things like:
"I miss you, love you, can't wait for you to get home!"
Now the only reason you want the other half home is:
"You need to knock off early, actually now.... it's screaming and won't stop!"
Communication while grocery shopping:
Before kids: (Via text) What do you feel like for tea, fettucine, or Ravioli?
After kids: (Phone call) *Child screaming in background* Have we still got those McCains frozen meals in the freezer?
Texts while [Other Half] "out with friends":
Before kids: (Text) (2am) [Me] I'm heading to bed now, back doors unlocked for you xx
After kids: (Text) (7pm) [Other Half]"On way home now, Little miss has a code brown"
(7.01pm) [Me]"Bags not"
Texts between friends:
Before kids: (Text) (9.30pm) [Friend] "Wanna Hang"
After kids: (Text) (9.30pm) [Friend] "Wanna Hang"
[Me] "Dude you woke me up!"
Text while [I'm] on vacation:
Before kids: (Phone call) (11pm) [Other half] "Miss you"
[Me] "Oh it's only for a few days"
After kids: (Text) (4.30pm) [Me] " Miss you"
[Other half] "I think it's good for little miss to be visiting her relatives"
