look what i did without a kid!

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 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.

Check out what Monica did without a kid here. (I know I am a little late but better late then never)

Yup, yup, yup and oh ...Yes!

Now, please exucse me while I got bathe two kids after cleaning their faces from a sticky breakfast. Dress them, change their sheets, do yet another load of laundry and prepare for the THREE more kids who will be spending the night.

And - I'm sure you know I am infinately grateful that I am allowed to do any of the above things!

Aaaahhhhhh... that all sounds so nice! Yes, I am grateful for my son, but it sure would be nice to relax and have "grown-up" fun every now and then.

Yes, the "sex whenever and wherever" is a big one. People it lots of rugrats in the house - I wonder how they maintain their sexytime. "Here, baby has been sucking on my tits all day, but here honey. You can have sloppy seconds."
