Before you had kids...

I love my kids so much! But sometimes, when I'm being selfish, I think of the things I miss about life before the lil monsters. :) The biggest thing I miss, cleaning the house and having it STAY clean!

What do you miss??

  • Hmmm... that's a really hard one for me! I had my first little one at 19, and I'd only been out of the house for about a year. I'd been married to my husband for about a year too. So I guess what I miss occasionally, and not in an I-wish-I'd-never-had-kids kind of way because I love my kids more than life itself, is alone time with my DH.

  • Going to the movies lol, My husband and i would go like 2-3 times a week before we had our son. Now, never. We tried to go 2 weeks ago but he cried for a while at our friends house so we left before the movie started lol. Its ok though since id rather be with my son then see a movie

  • I agree with all of these! lol Of course you will miss things about life before a BIG change, but I think we can all agree life is better with our babies. :)

  • My privacy and freedom. Oh, and not having to share my food. lol My son thinks whatever I'm eating he has to have some too.

  • Being able to get out the door on time. Now, with 2 kids, something always happens (poopy diaper, lost shoe, forgotten toy, hungry, thirsty, etc etc). I LOVE my kids, but I definitely miss being on time for everything :)

  • I miss having no urine smell in the bathroom. Some days, the smell in so strong, it makes me nauseous.  I'm hoping, as my kids get older, their aim gets better.
