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.
