Becoming a parent is a life-changing experience for all of us, and our TODAY moms are no exception. Although almost every area of life changes after welcoming children, we asked them to summarize their post-baby life changes in just one #hashtag.

The hashtags from our TODAY moms ranged from the practical (#LoadsOfLaundry) to the sentimental (#Joy).

Jenna's hashtag (#DancePartyToFrozen) describes a family tradition and how dancing has changed since becoming a mother.

"Our dance parties look quite different now than they did in our twenties," Jenna said. "Now, we are dancing around as a family in a circle. Usually each person gets to pick a song, and I can't even count how much we've danced to 'Let it Go.'"

Natalie's hashtag of #ATM describes how she feels when her children constantly make requests.

"Kids, you know what I'm talking about," Natalie said. "Oh yeah. Constant need for this or that."

However, despite feeling like a human ATM at times, Natalie said it's all worth it.

"In the end, all that money, all that time, all that effort is time well spent and money well spent. Wouldn't trade it for the world."
