life before kids......

What the heck is that like? Anyone remember? I found this website called Before Kids, they have some really really cute stuff, but it got me thinking.....What do I miss about life before kids?



I miss small purses. I forget what its like to have to run to the store and you just grab some money, keys, and phone. HA! Those days are over. Now I always have diapers, drinks, snacks, band aids, wipes....you get the point.



I miss having no time restrictions. How many times has this happened to you. You call to make an appointment for the doctor, dentist, carpet cleaners, whatever and they tell you they have a 1pm. BAD. Right in the middle of nap time. Or your child free friends want to meet for dinner at 7ish. BAD. Its bed time in the world of toddlers.



I miss showering along. My three year old insists on showering with me every night. Which is ok because it kills two birds with one stone. But I would love to be able to shave my legs without it turning into some sadistic yoga routine, use HOT water instead of the cold Mia loves so much, and NOT step on mermaid barbie 309842039840 times.

I miss uninterrupted sleep.

I miss going out with the girls till all hours of the night (or morning). Dancing, drinking, laughing, going to Dennys and being stupid, getting kicked out and then being welcome with open arms at Steak and Shake.

Those were the days.

Although I miss my kid free days, I wouldnt trade my crazy, hectic, kid filled life for all the money in the world.

I can't even recall...it's been almost 24 years. I do know that I wouldn't change a thing, either...but on my rare days of "aloneness" I pretend I'm on my own with no responsibilities and I realized one thing:

It's damned boring!! :)
