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

Posted by   + Show Post

 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 sleeping past 8.  And going to bed when I want even if it is before 9.  Just sleep in general.  I miss sleep.

I used to go to bed early and read late into the night. Now it takes me a year to finish a book! Lol

Go to the bathroom ALONE.

get a hair cut without rushing to get home ASAP.

watch prime time tv DURING prime time and not on the DVR 3 days later.

being able to stay in bed and be medicated when I have a cold or a migraine instead of having to power through miserable.

Sleep
Free time
Not having to share my chocolate
One on one time with my husband. ( we were not together long before getting pregnant so I feel like we missed out on part of our relationship )

I miss sleeping through the night without waking up and traveling. My husband and I used to travel a lot and now it is a lot harder with a one year old but I wouldn't change a thing!

I really don't feel like my kids are holding me back from doing what I want. I guess that is because they are older now and pretty independent.
