Is there anything you used to do before kids that you wish you could do now?

 Before I had kids, my life was emptier in many ways but I also had a lot more fun, lol. The main thing I miss from my pre-kid life, though, is my freedom - the freedom to get up and go to the mall just because I want to go browsing without having to load up the car, drag them along, and tell them "No" 900 times as we go through the mall looking at things. I also miss being able to sleep in!

So what about you? What did you used to do before you became a mom that you wish you could still do now?

I miss just being able to flop on the couch after I get home from work and crash for an hour or so.  And sleeping in to, I'm really missing that!  Or just sleep in general, DS still isn't sleeping through the night most nights.

Vacationing without needing a 100 step plan, as well as about a thousand lists of everything you will need for only a weekend trip. Lol.

Travelling, my parents would take us to different places on holidays and summers were camps, trips and summer house I miss those times, not worrying about anything but what to take and where to go. Be wreckless and a rebel without giving a shit, oh those times... and sports, well istn a before and after babies thing, is more of an age thing lol, but still.

I got pregnant way too young I never got to explore my early twenties. Enjoyed a brief stint before babies of late nights and parties. I'd like to be able to see what I missed out on.

That sounds bad. :-/

Yes it never fails.

I have to admit last week because of all the snow days I went and got a lock for my bedroom. Now I can lock the bedroom door and use my bathroom all by myself. It's been wonderful. :)
