I sat in bed last night dreaming up all the things I wished I could do today. As a mom I realized that not many of them were going to be possible. Before the day even starts i must admit defeat and embrace the madness, which I intend to do. But for fun lets look at how different life is with kids shall we?


10things I would love to do today:


  1. Wake up late
  2. Be served tea in bed
  3. Go for a run in the forest
  4. Take a long hot shower
  5. Have pancakes for breakfast
  6. Get back into bed with a book
  7. Have a nap
  8. Watch a movie/write a blog post
  9. Make supper with my husband over a beautiful bottle of red
  10. Eat it on the couch while watching a movie marathon


10 things I will be doing today:
