So for this installment of LWIDWOAK it is not going to be as exciting as this one.
Anyway, it's the simple things that I get to experience on a regular basis that are LWIDWOAK moments. For example...I get to sleep in on the weekends, in fact if I never want to get out of PJ's that is ok because I CAN. I can stay up late because I do not have to worry about the kids waking me up at 6:00 am. If I want to go somewhere I can go at a moments notice...no kids to get ready. I can walk through the store without hearing "mommy, can I have (place toy or candy of your choice)". I can watch anything I want. I can watch R rated movies or scary movies without worrying if the kids are asleep. I don't know all the kids shows and movies by heart because I haven't watched them 20 times. I can have sex whenever and where ever I choose. I don't have to pay for daycare or babysitters. I can drink myself silly if I want for no apparent reason. I could go out all night if I choose to (I don't but if I wanted to I could). And last but not least...No poopy diapers to change (this is a big bonus)!
These are the things I appreciate in between the longing for a child. I am sure you all know I would trade these all in a second and love every minute of it but while I don't have any kids I might as well enjoy these moments because hopefully they won't last.
