    Yes!!!! I do miss that.

    Having to lock the door when we DTD is another (when we actually get time for it but that's another story right there...). No more spontaneity in that area anymore for sure.

    Only having to worry about yourself if you get sick. Sick kids are like a puzzle missing bits.
    Going to the toilet by yourself. Kids don't care for privacy.
    Showering by yourself or with the hubby without fear of being busted or explaining.
    Not tripping over toys in the hall.
    Your shoes being exactly where you left them.
    A good nights sleep.
    Mostly I miss just being able to come and go as I please and not planning a day in advance and packing the house with me.

    Everything everyone else said !!!!!!!!!!

    our kids really must drive us bonkers some days!!!!

    Yes there are defiantely some parts of yourself you just loose when you have kids.

    I miss having head space - I am constantly THINKING THINKING THINKING about what to feed next, whether we'll make it back in time for a sleep, if not, better take, pram, blanket, teddy, getting babysitting and childcare organised, and then once you do the kid is sick and you can't go or they come back sick and the next 2 weeks you're house bound worrying about every little symptom the present with..

    I miss having a clean house.

    I miss shopping for myslef. My wardrobe at the moment is the pits.

    I miss my old body.

    I miss doing whatever I want whenever I wanted.

    I miss...

    Cleaning the house and having it stay clean for more than an hour.

    Calling a friend and having a spontaneous catch up over drinks.

    Going shopping without watching the clock

    Being able to swear in conversation

    Having a shower without interruption

    Its the ability to just have me as number one that i miss...i find myself being number 3...or 4 lately, if you count my DH job

    Spontaneously going to the movies as a couple. We used to go all the time, now a trip to the movies consists of finding a time my sister can mind DS, ensuring he is fed, bathed and settled before we leave while also getting dressed and eating ourselves, and then I usually stress that he will wake up and be a handful while we're out (he's been night waking lately). Half the time we just can't be bothered because of all this, so we haven't been to a movie together in ages.

    Many hugs

    yes yes yes! I have no idea what I was worried about! I have decided to just be happy and confident with my body now...it's only going to get worse after all!

    Sleep.

    My life before children seems *unbelievably luxurious*. To be able to read a book.. make a phone call.. exercise... have an orderly house... a social life... Choose when I wake up.
