  • Doing what I want when I want to do it because I want to do it when I want to do it, not because my daughter is taking a nap or doing this or doing that and so on and so forth.

  • I miss going out with big groups of friends. I don't do that anymore. If I did I'd probably just talk about my son and be "that mom" that can't help herself!! We have new friends now that have kids and we get along really well so I don't miss it as much now that we can go out with our other "family" friends :)

  • Being able to just get up and go. Or going out. Always have to have them w/ us... Or if I don't, I can't stay up late because my oldest has school in the AM... UGH... But, I LOVE being a mom!!!

  • Before I had my daughter, I never had a schedule, only worked when I felt like it, and would just take off for days at a time. You can't really just crash on couches or go wherever, whenever you want. Sometimes I miss it. An old friend just asked me what I've been up to. (I used to always have a story) And answering it, I just felt boring. I know myself and my personality's not boring, but compared to my crazy childhood, it seemed weird to me.
