Things are different today.

This is the list of things that I didn't think I would ever miss. Then I had kids. I don't particularly miss not having responsibilities, not being able to take adult vacation, go out on a whim or have a conversation on the phone before kids are off to bed. It's the simpler things in life that I crave. But once again, no regrets.

1. Not having to put all things valuable/fragile/deserving not to be destroyed on high shelves.

2. Getting dressed without a bunch of wild children bursting into my bedroom offering their help.

3. Sleeping in the middle of the bed.

4. Having consistently dry and clean bedding.

5. Uninterrupted sleep. Every night. For 20 years. Hard to believe, eh?

6. Eating without having anyone on my lap.

7. Living with only negligible amount of guilt.

8. Sleeping in late on the weekend.

9. An afternoon with a good book.

10. Going to the bathroom unaccompanied.


  1. You forgot:
    -uninterrupted showers
    -not being broke all the time
    -humming rock songs instead of Barney songs
    -having enough energy to sleep with your husband

  2. Super, Sub likes 10 point lists but both sub's list and your additions are extremely entertaining because they are so to the point ( except I hum "la la la la Elmo's world").

  3. Nah, I am not very fond of number ten. It's just my brain freezes after I come up with eight or so things... So there are other things that I miss - like having a functional brain - but I just couldn't think any more. Sigh...

  4. Oh, and I still hum rock songs, my person favorites are "I'm going slightly mad", "Under Pressure", and "If you're happy and you know it." but that last one might not be technically rock though it could explain why I am going slightly mad.

  5. How about "...I wanna be sedated..."
