Becoming a Parent: How Have Your Kids Changed You, Mom & Dad? by Mike Prochaska
It’s funny how life changes once you have your own children. Before I was a stay-at-home dad, I would recycle or throw away everything the minute we were done with it. Now, every time we run out of paper towels, toilet paper or plastic water bottles, I save them in a bin for art projects. Every piece of cardboard that comes through the house now gets saved for the kids to use because they can always use it to paint or glue or whatever their imagination wants or takes them.
That’s one of the best things about children – they remind us of all the fun that can be had with even just a simple box. It can be a race car, rocket ship, time machine or whatever they want. It's only limited by their imaginations.
