What I miss most is…
…using my tweezers on my eyebrows, instead of using them to retrieve Barbie’s shoes from the heating grate.
…dreaming long enough to find out whether George Clooney wears boxers or briefs.
…having an entire conversation that has nothing to do with poop. Aw, geez! There it is again.
…accessorizing with jewelry and scarves, rather than marker and what appears to be butternut squash & corn.
…dashing out with my car keys and some Chapstick, instead of packing up like the traveling circus just to go to the mall.
…showering without someone opening the door and handing me the phone while saying, “Some lady wants to talk to you.”
…to read a book anywhere but my car, because the baby naps only in her car seat.
…reaching the bottom of the laundry pile. For days.
…my purse, which I haven’t seen since I bought the diaper bag.
…non-animated television programs.
…sauntering through parking lots, supermarkets and Target without having to shout, “Stay by Mommy!”
…uninterrupted telephone conversations. And, did I say sex?
Share, share, that’s fair: Tell us–What do you miss, Mom?
