Re-posting a draft...

Before I had kids...
-I got a full night's sleep regularly.
-I could run to the store for a gallon of milk and back in 20 minutes.
-I could leave the house without coordinating nap and feeding schedules.
-I didn't have 10 loads of laundry to wash, dry, fold, hang up and put away every week.
-I never uttered the words, "potty," "poo-poo," or "pee-pee"
-I managed to make it a full day without a spot on my clothes.
-I had never been simulataneously pooped on and thrown up on.
-I didn't have to take a stuffed dalmation with me everywhere I went.
-My house stayed clean for days on end instead of hours.
-I only had one butt to wipe.
-I never had to dig a dead bug out of a toddler's mouth.
-I had never picked someone else's nose.
-I wore makeup everywhere.
-I only had one size of clothes in my closet

Just reflecting, not complaining.

I often think about the wiping butts thing...I cant wait till the day when the only butt I wipe is mine...just sayin.

I have a good life said...'d do it all again, wouldn't you? There are days when you wonder, just like me, but....all-in-all, being a Mommy is the best thing ever! :)

Sigh.............yes it is all true and one day when we are old, gray, and lonely, we will beg our kids to come back just for a visit. LOL
