So to allleviate a little of these winter blues, I thought I’d share 10 new mom fantasies (not that kind of fantasies get your mind out of the gutter), that I think most women with little kids could relate to. These are about as mundane as it gets, but when you have two small children, these are right up there in terms of things you daydream about.
1. Eating a leisurely meal in a restaurant, sitting down, at a table. I literally don’t even care if it’s at McDonald’s. Between Ryland and Bobby I rarely eat a meal these days without either simultaneously nursing a baby or fighting off the advances of a ravenous toddler. Half of my food is eaten standing up half inside the fridge trying to be stealthy.
2. Showering in private, with the door closed. Most of the time when I shower, the bathroom and shower door are wide open, and I have to stick my head out every few seconds to listen for the sound of screaming. Even if R is home, typically Ryland finds a way in and sneaks up on me, which is not at all creepy.
