    Default Anyone want to reminisce.....

    about what they miss about maternity leave? I'll start:

    -going back to bed
    -sweatpants
    -Jon and Kate plus 8, Malcom in the middle, runway moms, oprah
    -showering late in the afternoon instead of 5:30 am.
    -weekday = empty mall
    -no bottles
    -afternoon walks
    -sleeping when the baby sleeps
    -no pumping!!
    -no rush hour traffic
    -sitting for hours just staring at this new creature
    -taking pictures every moment, of everyday
    -middle of the night feedings (yes, i do miss this time with him)
    -doing laundry mid-week
    -not missing one single moment of his daily life.

    My maternity leave ended over a year ago, so it's been a while. But, I do miss:
    naps (hers and mine!)
    comfy clothes
    stroller walks
    Price is Right (the Bob Barker version)
    All My Children
    all the one-on-one time
    I'm Wendi.

    Snuggling and sleeping when baby sleeps (luckily we co-sleep so I still get to do this a lot!)
    March Madness-I got to watch most of the tournament last year with a baby at my breast.
    No pumping
    No schedule
