After a another exhausting week of wrangling my two fantastically rambunctious little boys, I got to thinking 'wow! One day they will be older and I will actually have some ME/adult time again!' So with that in mind I have compiled........
A List of Things I will do When My Kids are Older.
- Wear fabulous dresses. Frocks. 1950s shift dresses. Beautiful fancy-free summer dresses! Everyday! Thats right, no more tracky-dacks and kindy clothes for me!
- Go out on dates with my then (finally/hopefully) husband.
- Which brings me to my next entry - Finally get married!
- Eat an interesting evening meal that consists of something other than fish fingers and vegetables.
- Re-explore all of Wellington's amazing restaurants.
- Have a career again!
- Do lunch. In the city. With all the friends I haven't seen in years.
- After dropping the kids off at school, go to a yoga class! In the day time!
- Go swimming every morning.
- Stay in bed for a ridiculously long time drinking tea and watching girly movies.
- Get a manicure, without thinking 'Damn, I'm just gonna mess these nails up at the park later today'.
- Paint! I used to paint. But now out of fear that the kiddies will find my messy art guff, it is hidden up high on a shelf and by night fall I am too tired to even consider getting it down. This could possibly hinder entry number one, as I may have to wear the messy clothes to paint. No! I will paint in frocks too!
- Wear danglers! Dangly earrings, dangly necklaces, anything dangly! Without fear that the baby will yank them off me/out of my skin.
- Be a morning person. Well I guess I am a morning person. I get up at about 5am in the morning to feed my baby son. Blurry eyed I make him a bottle, change him, feed him and PUT HIM BACK IN BED. It is not morning until at least 7am!
- Write! I plan to write a lot! I have a scrap book full of ideas for plays, short films, full length films and even a couple of novels. They say there is a book inside of everyone. Well, I think there could be about 100 inside of me!
But, for now I plan to enjoy the play-dough, the sandpit, the tantrums, and the mayhem. There is also another list I have in mind. A LIST OF AWESOME THINGS I CAN DO WITH MY KIDS WHEN THEY ARE OLDER. (Like camping in Abel Tasman and making family artworks.) But that is a list for another day!
