Success BEFORE having children:
Spring cleaning my house from top to bottom and organizing all my closets
Success AFTER having children:
Rinsing off the bowls of cereal before they dry and I need the assistance of a butter knife

Success BEFORE having children:
Finding bags of bargains and deals at the mall and spending less than I thought for more than I need.
Success AFTER having children:
Being in the mall for 2 hours with no screaming, fits of rage, bathroom accidents or broken merchandise.

Success BEFORE having children:
Having all the laundry done for the week and seeing an empty hamper
Success AFTER having children:
Clean undergarments.

Success BEFORE having children:
A clean and vacuumed car fresh out of the car wash ready for a road-trip,
Success AFTER having children:
No unknown rank smells.

Success BEFORE having children:
Hair done, jewelry on, garment pressed and purse organized for an evening out.
Success AFTER having children:
An evening out... preferably with a shirt that doesn't have throw-up on the shoulder.

Watching your daughters become the most awesome mothers in the world....
