I Miss you

Things I miss since I have become a Mom:

Going to the bathroom alone. This doesn't seem like much of an issue, but it is. Some things are better off alone and I really don't feel like explaining a period to a two year old. That's just wrong.

Having at least 15 minutes to finish a meal. I hate rushing and pounding my food down because I have the two kids who will not sit in their high chairs more then 8 minutes. Not to mention but they are really nice high chairs. AND they recline for a nap after a nice snack. What could be better?!?

Talking on the phone without interruptions.

Not hearing Old Mac Donald or the ABC song 923478328946 times a day.

Getting dressed without someone pointing to my breast and asking "what's dat?" with a disgusted look on her face.

Only having to clean up after myself.

Not having to ever worry about whether or not someone pooped today, or yesterday or in the last week.

and finally

uninterrupted SLEEP

  1. I miss a lot of things before I became a mom too. But I've gotta say, the rewards of being a mom far outweigh anything else in this world. Nothing makes my heart smile like a hug from my little boy. Nothing makes me feel more loved then when he puts his head on my shoulder and smiles. Nothing is better then knowing with a kiss, I can heal boo-boo's, and make him feel better. And nothing, NOTHING is sweeter then hearing a 2 1/2 year old smile and say "momma" :)

  2. I miss having time to make myself look pretty and being able to take a long shower in the morning.

  4. The boob thing had me laughing...Princess keeps pointing to my rather well-endowed boobs and asking "Watsat?" and I can't figure out what to tell her that is age-appropriate. "That's mommy's breast" seems a bit much.

  5. I can so relate! I can't get dressed without my son having to hang ot with me. I cant' get a shower without him sitting in the bathroom with me, I can't surf the internet without the eldest yelling for Cartoonnetwork.com.

    Eating? What's that? But, I have learned a trick - when I really want alone time - I make them clean up so I can have so "alone time." Although I hear them bitch and complain the whole time -- it sure is nice to just be 'alone' for 5 minutes.

  6. I can very much relate to this post. I usually leave the door open slightly when I go to the bathroom in case anyone needs me. But when you're doing the whole tampon thing an audience is really not nice.
    And when I get dressed my daughter points to my boob and says "doo-doo" her word for milk because she was weaned only 4 months ago. She laughs too - she thinks it is hilarious.
