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.

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

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.

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.
