A little while ago, a friend and I were comparing a couple of articles on Facebook. One was "Things You Shouldn't Say To Parents With More Than Two Children" (or something similar...), and the other was "Things You Shouldn't Say To Someone With No Kids" (again, not the exact title, but you get the idea).
Anyways, I made a comment saying that there were some things I would love to do but "can't". You'll see why that is in quotes as you read this post...Well, that got me thinking! That's always a dangerous thing if you know me. :-) I have compiled a small list of things I would like to be able to do - easily. This is far from all inclusive.
Run/exercise when I want.
Ride my bike again. Man I miss that single track...
See a movie or go to dinner with my husband. You know...like a date...without having to jump through 500 hoops.
Weekend trips without 500 bags.
Go to the bathroom with the door closed without worrying about someone hitting someone else, or falling and hitting their head on the corner of something.
Drop everything to help people that need it. Without having to wait for Michael to get home or trying to find a babysitter.
For my container cabinet to stay organized longer than 1 hour...which only happens over night.
That's about all I'll include for now. I could go on!!!
Now, having said that, I would not trade being a mommy for the world. I love my children with all of my being. Sometimes, though, that being just gets a little frazzled and needs a little break...or some wine. ;-)
