I am glad that moms are loving this venting arena! I have been so boggled down with the stresses of life lately, and I just need a place to turn to and vent! I love my kiddos more than the air I breathe, but I miss me. Anyone else remember the single version of yourself, and just wish you could trade places for a day? LOL! I miss going to the grocery store with just a basket on my arm. I miss hopping in the car at a moment's notice, and riding off to places--even to just get takeout. I miss eating a meal in silence while watching TV on my couch or bed. And, I especially miss not having to scarf the food down, or share the food with a little person. I wouldn't trade my life for anything in the world--my babies are a blessing. I just miss my independence and freedom from time to time.
