50 Things Moms Miss Most About Their Pre-Kid Lives

42. Having free time to do absolutely nothing.

43. Having a clean car, inside and out.

46. Vacations that felt like actual vacations.

47. Staying up late for whatever reason, knowing that you can sleep in the next morning.

48. Having time, energy, and sanity.

Thank sweet baby JESUS I’m child-free! How much can one reasonably be expected to sacrifice before calling themselves a slave? Do dads sacrifice this much of their personal freedom for their children? (Mine didn’t, and I know many other men do not). Genuinely curious here.

Amy Cowell Hildebrand 1 year ago

#17 & #48 for sure!!

Michelle Mittag Bollig 1 year ago

This is spot on! All people should read this before deciding to have children.

April_S 1 year ago

All these things! 7, 19, and 37! Aaah, yes. (and 36, except here it’s walking around barefoot without stepping on some type of spilled food). And 14, except it’s making it to the register without a toddler melt down after already spending 20 minutes in the store.

Mother of a seventeen year old, two year old and one on the way…..although true, as they get older you get more sleep but more hassle, much less cuddles and much less money!! I agree with Karen!!!

Karen Surdel Major 1 year ago

As the mother of a 25 year old, I say you will get most of these things back when your kids are older. Don’t rush what you have now. I know these things are annoying, but they really do go fast and then you will be like me….wishing you kids were small again.

Suzette 1 year ago

Oh, how I miss #23, the shoe thing. And the pre-baby body that knows how to walk in them. And places to wear them on a regular basis. And the sleep to recover from wearing them. I have a much-beloved and super active 6 year old so anything I can’t run in is a non-option.

Shawn Ebel-Odeen 1 year ago

I only suffer from maybe 1/2 of those. Yay!

Christine Adamson 1 year ago

All of the above!! I know there will be a time that I will wish it all back but, right now, in it, I’d kill to have no one physically connected to me or needing me for 24 hours!!

Well, I’ve never had #3… cause I ruined it by being fat on and off since puberty… so that’s out the window, I wont blame my kids for ruining my “perfect figure”
And #17… never happens, I have a big dog and love him to bits, and will never go withput a dog again. And ever since he was a puppy I realized that my house will never be clean again. EVER. Lol

Rebecca Carey Dyer 1 year ago

The life isn’t horrible, it’s just an adjustment. Everyone is entitled to a little reminiscing 😉 it’s not for everyone but I don’t know anyone that regrets their littles despite the changes. Do you girl!

Rebecca Carey Dyer 1 year ago

No one is saying they don’t love it, just reminiscing about simpler times 😉 BTW, not entertaining your child enough is not a bad thing, it spurs their imagination! She’ll always think you’re the best mom and hers is the only opinion that matters 😀

Helen Russo 1 year ago

I cherish the few and far between times I wake up before my daughter and am coherent enough to quietly make coffee.
They ARE rare, and I only have 1!

Chimpo 1 year ago

LOL. Parents really lament their poor life choices don’t they? Most nights I get too much sleep, I have adult conversations with other adults and the animated TV shows I watch are adult shows such as South Park. I have a meaningful job which leverages my experience and education which allows me to take overseas holidays every 6 months with my wife. We don’t and will not have a loaf which will kill our life goals. Sorry parents, having a sprog is a choice and you picked poorly. When you see an airplane flying above you, please give it a wave and imagine my smiling face waving back at you as it jets to an exotic part of the world… the most exotic part of the world your likely to see is the city park (should you be able to afford the fuel and/or the time to visit it). Have a nice life with your hopes and dreams anchor you call son or daughter. LOLLLLLLLL!!!

Helen Russo 1 year ago

sigh…pretty much. If I’m gonna want candy at 10 pm, I have to “plan”
for it at 2. No more late night runs to the grocery store!

Rebecca Carey Dyer 1 year ago

It’s satire, get a sense of humor.

Allison Diehl 1 year ago

51. Being able to vent without some moron telling you that if you don’t like it, you shouldn’t have become a parent (or how ungrateful you are, or some other backhanded insult that makes the speaker feel superior).

My daughter refuses to get her hair cut because “then it will turn brown and not be special anymore mamma.” So I feel you on this.

Vanessa Alvarellos 1 year ago

Funny! But what’s the big deal about sleep? Mine are 3, 6 and 9, I put them to bed by 830 and we all get plenty of sleep!! It’s pretty much always been like that (after the baby stage of course).

Naomi N Albert 1 year ago

I never have to worry about locking myself in the bathroom or my bedroom because my 7 & 4 year old both know how to unlock doors with a screwdriver or toy if need be. Is this something they learned on Disney?

Rachel Wenger Lehman 1 year ago

I had kids before texting so it was impossible to have any kind of real phone conversation without a crisis happening… Now, the grands wanna get in on it too…

Lucie Jacqueline 1 year ago

Maybe I’m a little odd…. but I love it. My daughter gives me purpose. I don’t miss those things. Maybe I used to. But not anymore. The only thing that does get to me as a parent is am I entertaining my child enough. It’s hard to keep up and constantly wanting be be the best mum you can be.

Éilis Mairead 1 year ago

I never had a clean car pre-kids and I love my body WAY more at 25 after 3 babies than I did at 20 before I got pregnant. But otherwise, oh yes haha. sleeeeeeep

There are things I just never had to say before or thought Id ever, ever, ever have to say, like today, “take the chicken out of the book! If you dont want it just leave it on the plate!” Also, “stop putting money in the oven, ill turn it on and not know its in there!” What non-parent ever imagines such sentences?!?

Elena Piranio 1 year ago

Can I add one to the list? I miss going to the beach with nothing but my towel an a drink! Now, it’s a wagon full! Wouldn’t trade it tho!!

12, and only 12. Some of these things are things I didn’t do before kids anyway, lol. But I wouldn’t trade my little terrorists, not even for hot coffee and sleep.

Dawn Bowering 1 year ago

Number 21 over the past few days; stupid allergies!

Vera Morgan Chitwood 1 year ago

These are spot on!

Emily Victoria Brandon 1 year ago

I get up before the baby–which does actually mean even less sleep–and I enjoy reading, breakfast, coffee, whatever for at least a half hour! I highly recommend!!

Mo Varley Streko 1 year ago

So funny- mine are 6,8,29

Bri 1 year ago

Oh…add “licked” to #8.

Bri 1 year ago

#12 is why I have been drinking my coffee from a insulated, spillproof coffee mug for the last 3 1/2 years. I can drink hot coffee for a couple of hours while distracted and even if my DS knocks it over it won’t be a disaster.

This list gave me a much needed laugh! It’s all so true and just the simple things in life.

Amy Etzler 1 year ago

As a mom with 20-something kids, I can say with confidence, you get most of this list back…. eventually. Maybe not the never-had-a-baby body because mine is still missing, but all I could think of when my kids were toddlers was I just want ONE ENTIRE DAY to myself without diapers and snot and tears and fighting. My kids were good sleepers, but I can relate to most of the rest of it. Hang in there moms (and dads)!

Olivia Clark 1 year ago

Although these are all true, I don’t think any mom (or dad) would ever change their new lives.. The list of how life changes for the better is a million times better than this. “you can sleep when you’re dead” I wouldn’t go back to “life before” for anything.

Kelly Whorley Hernandez 1 year ago

YES

Michele Lucas 1 year ago

Only 50? Lol

Jessica Loftus Pribish 1 year ago

Not having to hide in the closet so you can eat your favorite food without sharing it..

This shit is why I don’t want to have a kid. Everyone goes on and on about how horrible their lives are after children and how it ruins their bodies. I don’t want that to happen.

Tara Levin Mack 1 year ago

It gets better

Erin Nelson Sutton 1 year ago

I actually still do most of these. We weren’t party goers before our son came alone, but the thing I miss most is being able to go out to dinner and a movie without having to search for a sitter. My husband and I take turns going out alone. Lol

Helen Sanborn 1 year ago
