  • The one thing I miss pre-children is just getting up and and leaving whenever. With kids you have to get them ready and everything so that you can go out somewhere. Sounds silly, but I miss that and sleeping whenever I want. LOL

  • alot of things. doesn't that sound terrible? but honestly, i really do miss alot of the things like a clean house all the time, having nice clothes and just going out whenever i wanted with whoever i wanted to do whatever i wanted for as long as i wanted. i had an old woman tell me when i was pregnant the first time " i would never remember what my life was like before kids. " well..she lied. i remember very well what my life was like!

  • I love my children. I miss going to the gym. I was a gym rat, nothing like having all those endorphins going through your body and feeling so good. I will soon have three small babies under 3, come Jan. Finding me time will be hard, but I will cherish every moment. Like the song goes, "you're going to miss this"

  • Since this is the craft section, I miss being able to complete a project in a timely manner. With two kids under 2 it's almost impossible to knit or crochet anything like I used to...

  • Unlimited knitting time or sewing time
    but i wouldn't trade the munchkins for anything even waking up at 2 in the morning just cuz i dreamed up a great new knitting project (yep that had become a common thing before pregnancy)
