Because a few of us are struggling at the moment - what moments/experiences are you looking forward to sharing with your child/ren in the future?
Reading DS the Harry Potter books the SECOND he is old enough.
Taking DS overseas next year - at this stage Hong Kong (Disneyland!!) and Singapore, then a cruise from Singapore down to Perth.
DS learning to read and write, and hopefully to play an instrument.
Buying his first school uniform.

Ha ha, I saw the title of this thread and had my answer all prepared, it was going to read: wine, bedtime, showering and eating chocolate when my kids aren't looking
Then I opened your thread and realised my answer wasn't really what you were looking for!
Its going to sound really corny but honestly everything! I love that every day is a new experience for kids, they are always discovering something for the first time and everything is exciting. Even when they drive me nuts I can't help but find my kids enthusiasm for something new contagious.

I'm looking forward to when DS is old enough to start asking interesting questions about the world that I can answer (can finally put that science degree to use!). All he asks now is "Biscuit? Wiggles? …More biscuit?"
And similar to books - we're looking forward to when he can play video games with us, and introducing him to all those other worlds too.

What do you look forward to?
Watching disney movies together on a lazy afternoon (dd1 still doesn't have the attention span
Girls nights in when dh is away to paint our nails and do other girlie things
Picking them up from school, returning to a clean/organised house and talking about their days
Watching the girls play together and having sleepovers in each other's beds (dd1 is so keen)
Having dd1 (and most likely dd2) eat a family meal I prepared.... And actually like it
Eta: I love it when they can kiss you and say I love you. Can't wait for dd2 to do this

Conversation. Proper, regular conversation about whatever. DS1 is already there (6) but DS2 still struggles to hold a full conversation that's not based on imaginary stuff, like him being a superhero fireman (4). That being said, I love the ages they are now. One at school so he's doing "big kid" stuff and one still little enough to want to be cuddled to sleep on occasion (like last night when he was "sad" ).

Taking the kids tripping around Sri Lanka, Japan and somewhere Disney but haven't decided where yet. When my son is older, having him learn to dive and being able to take him for a scuba, shopping for my daughters first school uniform, seeing my son play in his first grand final, Christmas concert at my daughters daycare. Lots and lots of things.
