Ten Things Parents Miss from Before They Had Kids

Almost 90% of parents in a new survey said having kids was the best thing they’ve ever done. But 70% also said they underestimated how much HARDER life would be.


Here are the top ten things parents miss about not having kids:

1. Getting to be lazy on the weekend.

2. A clean and tidy house.

3. Total peace and quiet while you’re watching TV.

4. Getting to leave the house whenever you want, without worrying about a babysitter.

5. Spending money without worrying about your budget so much.

6. Taking a shower or bath without being interrupted.

7. Date nights.

8. Going to the bathroom without being interrupted.

9. Being able to take a vacation any time of year, not just in the summer.

10. Getting a good night’s sleep more often.


A few more from the top 50 include going out with friends more often . . . not being asked “WHY” all the time . . . watching R-rated movies . . . the freedom to swear whenever you want to . . . the luxury of doing nothing when you’re hung over . . . and being able to listen to YOUR favorite music in the car.
