Because someone will say they don't click on links... Here's the article. I dont get it either. I still manage to wear clean clothes, read books and wear heels from time to time.


 
I've found there are a few things I didn't quite expect to miss so much and it surprised me. There were five things that specifically topped my list:

1. Wearing clean clothes. I initially thought after the spit up phase that clean clothes were on the horizon again. Nope. Whether my toddler is wiping his hands messy on me, squirting me with one of those supposedly no spill straw cups, or spilling something - I'm still always messy. Especially since now we're back in the spit up phase again with my second child. Maybe when my kids are in college I'll have a clean shirt on again.

Shocking new mom confessions you won't believe!

2. Reading the real words to a book. Keeping the attention span of a small child takes hard work and quick thinking. That often means pointing out the items on the book's pages or very quickly reading through the words before those little hands are turning the pages to see what comes next. It will be great when we can actually REALLY read a book.

3. Silence. Between a newborn babe and a rambunctious toddler, we don't get a lot of quiet time around here. At the end of the day when my toddler is in bed and I'm just getting my newborn down to sleep, those first few moments of quiet are so. darn. wonderful. I actually went to a doctor's appointment by myself the other day and wished it would take the staff longer to come in and see me - just so I could have a few extra minutes of silence by myself in the exam room!

4. Doing something - anything - without an interruption. Because no matter how quick you are, it is inevitable. The moment you get into eating, showering, paying a bill, answering an email, taking a phone call, or anything else boom! - someone is going to need something. And they aren't just going to need something, they're going to need something very loud and very urgently. I took a two minute shower yesterday and by the time I got out, my newborn was crying and my toddler had dumped my husband's cologne all over himself and the bathroom.

5. Wearing shoes with heels. I know this one seems silly, but I just can't bring myself to wear shoes with heels any more and I miss it. Between chasing our toddler and being afraid I'd hurt him by stepping on him as he is constantly underfoot, I've been demoted to flats for the time being. While there are plenty of great flats, I miss my wedges and heels. Maybe I'll get back to real shoes out when my kids are in college as well. That is - if I haven't already locked myself in a quiet room to read an uninterrupted book when they leave!

Yeah, that's a pretty stupid list. I always wear clean clothes, get to read a book, and wear heels.

Yeah I can do all those, but I usually choose to not wear heels. Course, my boys are Tweens now...
