I don't know if the planets are aligned, something in the water, or just that time of the year but it feels like as summer gets closer to ending (not that we've had much of a "summer") parents are finding themselves at their wits end. A few blogs I follow have been talking about how they've been struggling with mommyhood lately. Even a Facebook group I'm apart of had a post about things other mom's miss from their pre-kid days.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my kidlets to the ends of the Earth and beyond and there is nothing I wouldn't do for them, but every now and again I wonder "what did I get myself into?". As parents we reminisce about things from our childless days, so here's some of what I miss from my pre-children days.
However, even though I miss all of these things, and more, it's all worth it when Alyssa smiles when she sees me, Lynden randomly decides to give hugs and kisses, when Alyssa reaches any new milestone, every time Lynden learns something new (which is daily), and even at night when we check in on the kidlets before we go to bed and they're both these beautiful sleeping angels we could watch for hours. Like I said, I LOVE my kids to the ends of the earth and beyond and there's nothing I wouldn't do for them, even when I'm at my ropes end with them, so in the big picture I can live without all those things I miss.
What do you miss from your pre-kid days?
