It's the little things....

Mommy Boot Camp has really become something I look forward to every week. Not only does the instructor kick my booty, but some of the Moms really make me laugh and every once in awhile when I'm having a "Mommy Blues" kinda moment, make me feel much better. 

Monday was one of those days.... We got to talking about all the small things we missed from our pre-mommy days and laughed at how insignificant they were but how frustrating it can be sometimes when our hubbies don't  seem to understand..... It was nice to just laugh and vent with one another. Of course I wouldn't trade my new life for the world, but I do have a "day" every once in awhile.....

So ladies, this post is for you. I'm going to lay it all out there and list the top ten things I miss from my pre- mommy days and then you feel free to comment and add yours. We can call this our group therapy session for the day!
Here goes.....

1. Taking a shower by myself and actually having enough time to shave my legs
2. Having an actual adult conversation that isn't interrupted by, or about babies
3. Taking an extra long time to get ready (and by extra long I mean actually having five seconds to iron a shirt, put on actual make up and straighten my hair) without feeling guilty like I should be spending this time playing with Ford....
4. Wearing a cute shirt without worrying how drool will look on it
5.  Getting a mani/pedi (My pre Mommy self would slap me if she saw my fingernails)
6. Buying something nice for myself and not feeling like I should have spent the money on Ford
7.  Getting all my errands done in one day versus two here and then two there because let's face it, getting a kid in and out of the car is a pain in the PA-toot-y!!!!
8. Making a really knock em sock em, AMAZING, mouth watering, dinner from start to finish without being torn away by an inevitable baby need and then burning, not cooking long enough, or leaving out the most important ingredient in the recipe your trying to master,grrr!
9. Sleeping...... I don't know about you but I feel like I never sleep anymore and when I do I am awakened by the slightest noise ever..... no more deep sleep for this Mama!
10. Sporadic Date Nights, just because......

I know we'd all give it up all over again to have the opportunity to snuggle these little lovies, BUT humor me! What do you miss the most now that your a Mommy?

  1. This is a great list, was just thinking this myself. Now that Adrian is 7 months generally I can take a shower but my pre-mommy self would be a little unhappy with the hair situation :) But he is pretty cute and makes me laugh!
