Before I had kids . . .

1. Mike and I went out on the weekends and stayed out as late as we wanted.

2. There was lots of disposable income. : )

Three. We slept in. We took naps. We got lots of sleep.

4. We watched the shows we wanted to watch.

5. I didn't cut up anyone's food except my own.

6. Our yard was really pretty. Because there was time for that.

7. We both had new cars.

8. My house/car was almost always clean.

9. I didn't have stains on my clothes from little hands/mouths.

10. I had lots of free time to do my crafts and whatever else it was that I did with free time.

11. I didn't buy apple juice every single time I went to the store.

12. I didn't crave time to myself and then have that "itchy" feeling to get back home.

Thirteen. My number three key worked.

14. I didn't have tiny hands around my neck that warmed my heart.

15. I didn't kiss tears away and hug little bodies 100 times a day.

16. I didn't hear little feet running down the hall.

17. I didn't hear little voices calling "Mommy," or squealing with laughter.

18. I didn't realize our house was so empty.

19. I didn't realize my life could be so full.

5 people had nice things to say:

Before you were married:
You ran down the hall with little feets!
You hugged your Mom and Dad 100 xs a day!
You dressed yourself in funny costumes!
You ate whatever Joan cut up for you! Or was that Jennifer!
You wore tiny swirl skirts and twirled round and round!
You colored everything in site!
You spent the night with Grandma Irene and Papa Joe and ate yellow cake and strawberries!
Isn't it interesting how round the world is?
I love this commentary on Your life before marriage!

You're so on target. Sometimes I still can't believe I'm lucky enough to be called Mom, and my son just turned 12.

*showered every day
*wouldn't be caught dead in something that wasn't ironed
*never added up the total in my shopping cart
