Life Before Kids

On a recent flight, I was sitting on the plane with the rest of the crew who just so happened to all be single with no children. They were talking about their plans for the weekend and were really excited to be going home.

One girl was going to First Fashion Friday at Aloha Tower Marketplace, another had a date with a guy she recently met, a third was using her travel benefits and was headed to Kauai with her friend, the last one was planning to sleep the entire weekend.

Me? I had an elementary school carnival to go to.

They all laughed and said, “You poor thing!”

A part of me envied their exciting plans for the weekend and I have to admit that I miss those weekend mornings when I could sleep in for as long as I wanted. Back then, I needed at least 10 hours of sleep a night and everyone knew not to call me before 10am if they wanted me to actually answer the phone.

However, when I got home and walked through the front door, I heard Baby Bug running through the house screaming, “Mommy home! Mommy home!” She ran to me with such great force that almost knocked me over and said, “I glad see you!”

It was at that moment that I knew I wouldn’t trade my life for anything in the world. Although, it would be nice to get a few hours of extra sleep in the morning. ;-)

What do you miss most about your life before kids?

    Watching a movie all the way through without stopping.

    Talking on the phone without a ‘major catastrophe’ occuring.

    A clean house staying clean more than five minutes.

    But, though I may miss those things, I wouldn’t give up my kids for all the tea in China!
