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 was just getting back into running when I found out I was pregnant. Because I hadn't been running for long and I was losing weight instead of gaining, I had to stop. 

Quoting m0m0f06: I miss being able to lace up my running shoes and take a jog around the block after work...I've traded that time for laundry, fixing and cleaning up after dinner, scrubbing the bathroom, and helping with homework.

Just packing up bags with my husband and going on a trip to anywhere and returning home when we felt like it.
