What do you most miss from your pre-motherhood days?

For me its a sense of calm. I love my boy but my house is always a hustle and bustle since he burst on the scene.

  • I miss not having to worry about anyone but myself. Getting up and going without having to pack snacks or book a baby sitter. I miss seeing adult movies, only movies I see now days are kid related. I miss sleeping past 6am, taking a shower without being disturbed, spending all my money on me.... ahhhhh the list goes on. I love my kids but they are a handful, maybe if my 4 year old daughter would stop screaming life would be a little more peaceful.

  • Not having all the worries that comes with being a mother. You worry about them when they are little, you worry about them when they are older it never ends.

  • The quiet, OMG what it would be like to wake up just one more morning get my coffee sit down read the newspaper without hearing my 5yr old twin boys screaming like banshees at each other.

  • I can honestly say nothing, I did not have my girls until I was 35 so pretty much everything I wanted to do I got done before having a family :)

  • Being my own person. It's never about me any more. It's always all about them. I know that's very ego-centric of me, but damn it. I didn't ask for this. My first child came with the package and my second was an inheritance. LOL
