In no particular order, I present to you my totally random list of things I miss about not being a mom.

  1. Staying in bed all day with the husband watching crap TV
  2. Sleeping in
  3. Taking showers together – with husband that is
  4. Going out dancing
  5. Going to a movie (without scheduling it 3 weeks in advance)
  6. A clean house
  7. Eating chocolate for dinner, or donuts, or chocolate donuts…well you get the idea
  8. Playing hooky from work without feeling guilty
  9. Candles
  10. Not having to announce when I’m going to use the “potty

What say you? What do you miss?

Looking forward to reading your top missed activities/items and getting a good laugh.

All of mine are fantasy – because I’ve been a mom since I was 19. LOL

I don’t have any kids yet (or a husband, for that matter), but there is one thing I am immaturely and incredibly selfishly not looking forward to when I have kids: getting less Christmas presents from my parents.

I fear that future Christmas morning when my parents have only one gift for me while the rest go to my kids (just as it is with my parents/grandparents). Obviously, I am not mature enough (at 28!) to have children just yet… 🙂

I definitely miss sleeping in. What is sleep? I miss having the bed to myself because I made the terrible mistake of putting my son in my bed and now I can’t get him out! That’s what I definitely miss being able to cuddle with hubby while I sleep and having my pillow to myself!

Jai: We made that mistake too. We’re hoping to kick her out soon, but at this point it’ll have to wait until the new year. I definitely miss being able to cuddle…so, yea, let’s make that #11 on my list.

Oh, don’t remind me about all that things:)))) I miss them sometimes but now I know what happiness is to be mother:))

kompostela: It is great to reminisce every now & again. 😉

At least I know I’m not alone! I really need to kick him out soon!
