I wish...

I realized how good I looked 40 pounds ago.

I had a bathtub as big relative to my body as our tub is to Sophie.

Sophie's sleep schedule would be predictable enough that I could make plans and know I'd be able to keep them.

I wasn't always dog tired at 7pm and wide awake at 10pm.

Everything was in HD.

I could find a haircut that I was happy with for more than a week.

My hands weren't always cold.

I could bring myself to wean my daughter.

Exercise was as much fun as laying around.

I could eat dessert every night.

I could pause, rewind and replay life.

My child listened when I said NO.

I could bottle the way Sophie's laughter makes me feel.

Lizzy a very Happy Birthday full of joy and $25 Hondas!!


  1. I can't stand watching anything besides HD anymore. Almost avoiding the other 80 standard channels

  2. Amen about the bathtub and the haircut thing! I haven't had a haircut in over a year (sigh) but every time I think I've picked one out, within a week I hate it again.

    Regarding the pausing, rewinding, and replaying life, it made me think of this device I saw awhile ago:

  3. what's the rush to wean sophie? I say hang onto that one as long as you can...well not too long...but I nursed up to 18 months (toward the end it was just a naptime and night)

  4. hey I wish those things too. Great post.

  5. Me too. Almost everything on your list.

  6. I share almost every one of those wishes, but have to adjust one slightly: I wish I had a bathtub large enough and CLEAN enough to take a bath in.

  7. Oh, I so want the huge bathtub!

  8. I am totally with you on the tired at 7am and wide awake at 10 pm...What's up with that!!

    And you DON'T eat desert every night????

  9. Ohhhh, I wish I could eat dessert every night too!!

  10. I'm 43 and I STILL don't listen to my mom when she says no! lol

  11. I agree. Don't wean her till you're ready. It can be a slow process if you want. My kids quit ME cold turkey and my heart was broken each time.

  12. Awww - thank you for the wishes!!! I'm thinking with the economy the way it is this $25 Honda thing might take off!!!

  13. Why oh WHY can't exercise be more fun!?!


Give me some sugar, baby!
