I feel the same way. What prompted this was me standing there washing dishes and thinking "crap, I don't remember life before my kids" 

Quoting Anonymous:

There was life before my children?

I miss the freedom of spontaneity. I reminisce about my times out with my friends....my first apartment....traveling all over the place, BUT my life would have less meaning without my kids. So, while I miss parts of my past, the most important parts of my life are now and in my future. I'm snuggling with my baby girl right now and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Yes and no. I wouldn't trade my life now for my life before, but I miss my family. I moved about 8 hours away from my hometown to be with my husband. Haven't had the means to go visit just yet. But february or may I get to go back for a couple weeks!!!! I can't wait!! =D

yes and once all the kids became teens all at the same time I couldnt wait to get to empty nest syndrom LMAO  now im pretty much in that stage, oldest is still at home but he is 20 so he doesnt need watching or a baby sitter.... cried when the kids started moving out even tho I swore it was what I needed after 4 teens and all their friends always being at the house, but then one day its quiete and I found out I really did miss them ;)

Don't really remember it! But from what I do remember I don't think I could live it again and make it out alive!
