Day 10 | something you miss

With parenthood you gain so many wonderful things, but there's no denying that you lose a few privileges that you probably took for granted before. 

Simple things like going for a wee on your own, leaving the house without having to take a million things with you.... silence.

I love the chaos, a busy bustling house and everything that goes with having our three beautiful children. I wouldn't trade it for anything. But bloody hell, I miss just being able to *do* things.

By that I mean, being able to just get up off the sofa and go for a walk. These days it takes approximately 45 minutes to get from sofa to door, once we've factored in multiple pairs of shoes, going for a wee x 2, nappy change, sibling squabbles about how many toys they should bring.

It also includes being able to spontaneously decide to go to the cinema on a Friday night. I really miss that. We used to flick through the TV channels... nothing one? Lets go to the cinema. Can't be bothered to cook dinner....? Lets go out for food. Of course we could do that with the beanies, but its such an effort to be spontaneous it almost isn't worth it!

Having said that, when we do decide to go somewhere on a whim with the kids, or just the two of us, we appreciate it so much. 

I still wish I could go for a wee in peace though!
