A mother's wish-list

I want to.....

-wake up on my own. No alarm, no child asking for breakfast.

-buy a box of sweet cereal, (honeycomb, pebbles, etc) and actually be able to eat a bowl of it.... no wait.... ALL of it.

-eat candy for breakfast, because I don't have to set an example.

-have Bailey's in my morning coffee

-Shower when I WANT one, and have first dibs on the hot water.

-find my shampoo and conditioner just as full as it was, the last time I used it; not find the bottle full of water.

-not have to use the damp towel, in an effort to cut down on the laundry.

-make it through ONE cup of hot coffee, while it's hot, and not have to nuke it 4 times, just to get to the bottome of the cup.

-skip lunch, because I'M not hungry

-go to the store, just to buy a mocha, without having to take the diaper bag, the stroller, the 5 extra blankets, the bottle, the soother, the diapers, the wipes, the rattles, the rain cover FOR the stroller, the barney book, an extra pair of pants for the 2 year old, just in case, the barney book, the barbie, the extra jackets.....

- survive ONE day, without a single chocolate cookie smear on my pants at toddler height, macaroni stuck between my toes, spit up on my shirt, or an embarassing wet circle of milk on my chest.

- eat sweet cereal for supper

-control the remote

-not injure my feet on lego, barbie shoes, or dinky cars

-make a fattening snack, guilt free, and not have to share, or make enough for everyone.

-find my linen closet the same way I left it, where no one has deemed it a perfect hide and go seek spot.... minus all the pesky towels and sheets.

-have a nap.

-not have to smell pee..... just for ONE day.

-not to go into the bathroom and find a new huge roll of toliet paper, in the toliet.

-not to fill up a laundry basket so fast it makes my head spin.

ps: buy that cereal and hide it :+)

yeah and it was the good soft stuff too! BRAND new! I guess if we had too,
we could make a million spit wads with it, and peg our annoying resident manager
downstairs... ummmmm

.... we should save 'em until the next time our kids are on the other side of the room, being bad... a spit wad in the head.... that, in theory might work like a spray bottle with a cat!!

- a day of no crying, until your dad gets home and bam, you ask for things I have already
said no too, and the buckets come out in the dozen for your tears. aaaaakajaahaha!
