Wouldn't It Be Nice..


Eat a meal while it is hot and take more than ten minutes to do so.

Drink our tea or coffee hot.

Use a toilet without having to flush the prior users contents first.

Not answer a question all day.

Sleep/Nap and wake up naturally.

Have a conversation with our partner without interruption.

Make phone calls without having to hang up mid conversation to deal with some 'emergency' like a broken crayon for example.

Go out showered, fully dressed (I'm talking bra here ladies), wearing make up AND with clean teeth. OK that's a stretch but a girl can dream.

Buy something without feeling guilty if it's not for the kids.

Make it through a day without feeling guilt.

Make it through an hour without feeling guilt.

Feel that everyone got enough of you today - including yourself.

Be selfish.

To have a day off, with pay. Actually make that get paid, period.

Not sound like our parents.

Not have that grass is greener feeling.

Read your favorite blog in peace!
See what I did there?
The Parenting Myth - making dreams come true since 2009.


  1. Had noticed you as the featured blog days ago, but just got here now. I totally agree on the whole-let's-be-honest thing. I hate when parents (mostly moms) make it all seem so frickin' glorious. My blog is called ...but then I had kids, simply b/c of all the things I used to be until they arrived! I will be visiting often!

  2. My son is grown now, but I sure remember those days. One day you will be an empty nester and you are GOING TO LOVE IT! Don't let anyone tell you anything different!LOL

  3. Just having 5 minutes of quiet time with no one hanging on me would be heavenly!!

  4. I hear ya! But having three children between 7 and 16 years old, I can promise that your dreams will start coming true. Just hang in there.

  5. As I was reading your blog in peace, Sweetpea was in the other room ignoring her very loud alarm clock and shouting "MOMMY!" at the top of her lungs so I would come in there and shut it off for her.

  6. I honestly can't wait for the day when I'm wishing for all of these things!

  7. Amen. And if you get any of those things, let us all in on the secret to your success!

  8. Let me know you secert when you achieve these goals.

  9. The only one I think I have back now is #1. I'm not sure if I'll ever have a day without guilt again.

  10. I totally got to read this in peace. I'm at work. LOL! Very cute blog, yet again.

    *Blog shut down for a few days due to security issues.*

  11. *sigh* I couldn't wish for anything more.

  12. Flush the prior users contents - that's soooo true. It's even worse when you have to plunge it!

    All those reasons and more are why I NEED to come to work everyday. I knew from day one that I wasn't cut out to be a stay at home mom and the last six years have confirmed that inkling.
