Pre-Kid Problems

Remember all those problems we had before we had kids?

ย Totally inspired by the First World Problems meme

What were some of your #PreKidProblems?

  • Leigh Ann - Oh man. Milk and eggs used to always expire around here prekids!

    Yesterday I muttered to myself how annoying it was that I had so much food in my fridge that I had to keep taking things out and moving them around to get to the milks. Total first world problem.ReplyCancel

  • Jess @ MomEinstein - Hahahaha! I used to listen to my iPod when I went grocery shopping to fill the silence. Now – yeah, not so much.

    My Pre-kid problem:

    My dinner was so hot that I burnt my mouth.ReplyCancel

  • Carrie - Haha!! Love these. Especially the one about missing brunch. Oh, my simple pre-kid life. Haha!ReplyCancel

  • Krista - There’s nothing good on TV on Saturday afternoons. I guess I’ll just nap.ReplyCancel

  • A Man Called Dad - We haven’t had sex in two days, guess I better buy her some flowers.ReplyCancel

  • Lindsey C. - cannot like enough.ReplyCancel

  • Suzanne - YES YES YES. Especially all the movies!!ReplyCancel

  • Joanna - We have no plans for Saturday night. I guess we’ll just HAVE to head to the closest bar & see if any good bands are playing.ReplyCancel

  • danielle - you are magnificently funny and unwaveringly honest. i love this list.ReplyCancel

  • Danielle - My pre-kid problem…
    Ugghh! I only have enough time to watch 5 episodes of The Sopranos tonight.ReplyCancel

  • Marissa - Nothing planned for an afternoon, which book will I read?ReplyCancel

  • Janine (Alternative Housewife) - That movies one is so my husband and I. And now we’ve seen ONE movie in theaters in the past two years.

    I call bullshit on the boobs thing. Boobs can never be too perky, at least not real ones.ReplyCancel

    • Jill - I seriously had shirts that just didn’t look right because my boobs were too big and perky, at least for an office setting. I swear, I could never buy tops at Banana Republic before I had kids.ReplyCancel

  • Christie - I can honestly say that these weren’t really problems for me before. I guess it just depends on your normal lifestyle.ReplyCancel

  • Ashley - I’m still pre-kid and these are cracking me up. Especially the milk one. LolReplyCancel

  • Lisa - I was thinking brunch and then you did it. Love it.

    I especially love how (in someone else’s hands) this could have EASILY gone bad and self-righteous the way parents can – like nothing that isn’t kid-centric is important. I can always count on you to stay far away from that.ReplyCancel

    • Jill - Thank you for noticing that, Lisa. I made a conscious effort to not go into that territory. These are all legitimately things that bothered me before I had kids. I mean, Scott and I would be up at, like, 10:30 on a Saturday morning and be all, “So? I guess we’ll go to the mall… again? I mean, I have no idea what else we’re going to do this weekend.” This is me making fun of the old me.ReplyCancel

    • Diane @ DixieJulep - I completely agree with Lisa’s comment. And these are just awesome!ReplyCancel

  • Jill Shoemaker - yup that about sums it up!ReplyCancel

  • Amy Knoch - “So much time on my hands, I need a new hobby, but what?”ReplyCancel

  • Wendy Blackwell - “What will I do with this extra money I have?'”.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel Atkinson - The local movie theater has shows for $4 at 10am….I can’t drag myself out of bed that early on a Saturday.ReplyCancel

  • Tobasco - Ugh I really don’t like this nail polish color. I guess I’ll have to take it off and paint them a different color.

    I am so sick of going to the gym every day! I think I’ll take a nice long jog outside today.


  • Holly Noonan Stewart - Oh no, ran out of books to read, guess I will have to go buy another!ReplyCancel

  • Erin Richardson - Gah! There are so many unused rooms in this house. Seems so wasteful to have two guest bedrooms… I’m sick of having to dust them once a month. ๐Ÿ™‚ (& now guest are forced to sleep on a pull out sofa- lol)ReplyCancel

  • Melonie J Batres - lol, hell yeah!ReplyCancel

  • Aunna - It’s too lonely in the bathroom. Someone please come with me.

    I would get bored showering and whatnot. I loved when my husband would sit in the bathroom with me while I showered. And before husband, it was my best friend who came with me.ReplyCancel

  • Alexandra - These are brilliant. Truly.
    Girl With The #PreKidProblems, except for brunch. Allergies mean I skip brunch. ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Elaine A. - Ha ha ha! I can totally relate to the shopping one.ReplyCancel

  • Jessica - Love every one of these. Especially the jeans ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Larks - LOLOLOL! Excellence. Especially the “i’ve already seen all the good movies that are out right now.”

    Maybe also “I feel like I don’t spend enough time around the house”

    “I’ve already read this book.. Book club wants to read it. CAN’T HANDLE THE TWO TIMES IN A ROW.”

    “Want to get a pet. Freaked out by poop clean up.”ReplyCancel

  • Leticia - “The car last clean just 3 weeks this time.”

    “Do I have my manicure done or do I have lunch first?”

    “It’s my friend’s kid’s b-party, where is the toy store and what should I buy?”ReplyCancel

  • Good Girl Gone Green - Funny! There is nothing on TV tonight. I guess I will read a book! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Manticore Pinion - I’ll take these any day over a snot-nosed little brat.ReplyCancel

  • CourtneyP - Surprised no one mentioned this:

    This car ride is so long and boring!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly - These are great!

    “So many conflicts on my social calendar. Do I *really* feel like going to three parties in one night? I’m so exhausted!”

    “We’re out of wine?!” oh wait, that one’s the same pre-kid as post kid.ReplyCancel

  • Ami - This is awesome. Here’s my contribution:
    “I have so many nice clothes that I have to go the dry cleaners weekly.”ReplyCancel

  • K - So I’m still pregnant with #1, but it’s setting in early. I’m not looking forward to the droopy boobage and saggy belly people always seem to face after, haha. ๐Ÿ™ I am just enjoying having awesome boobs while they last. It’s new to me. ๐Ÿ˜€


    “I have 3 short sexy club dresses/skirts and I can’t decide which one to wear out tonight. :(”
    “I don’t know if I want to drink rum & coke or tequila shots.”
    “I can’t decide if I want a caramel macchiato or a mocha frappucino.”
    “My apartment is just too clean, I feel like no one lives here.”

    You can probably tell, I pretty much went directly from college to baby… lol.ReplyCancel

  • Christine Will Destroyyouall - Yet every single one of these ‘problems’ are given up willingly.

    Made bed, lie in.ReplyCancel

  • - You’ve got it in one. Couldn’t have put it better.ReplyCancel

  • - That’s a wise answer to a tricky questionReplyCancel

  • - Me dull. You smart. That’s just what I needed.ReplyCancel

  • auto insurance College Park MD - Wow! That’s a really neat answer!ReplyCancel

  • auto insurance Newport Beach CA - You’ve got to be kidding me-it’s so transparently clear now!ReplyCancel

  • best auto insurance in Carrollton TX - Wow, that’s a really clever way of thinking about it!ReplyCancel

  • - That’s way the bestest answer so far!ReplyCancel

  • - Now I feel stupid. That’s cleared it up for meReplyCancel

  • - Touchdown! That’s a really cool way of putting it!ReplyCancel

  • car insurance - ive done weightlifting since i was 14 even before i knew i was gay does this make me a stereotype? and furthermore do you think someone would still want to have sex with me even though i have anal warts?ReplyCancel

  • car insurance - Also, noticed the bright green cable that is the NBN creeping in the direction of my place. Hooray! Totally over slow and expensive wifi from mega-corp-international and will look forward to signing up with an Adelaide based ISP.ReplyCancel

  • - Words cannot describe how much I love this video, this makes me laugh every time I watch it. Somewhere in the depths of the Lerner basement, there is a video of me around my 4th or 5th birthday where I am literally shoving chocolate birthday cake into my mouth with my fist (and getting my entire face while I’m at it). I looked like I got into a fight with a swamp…and lost. Great minds think (eat) alike.ReplyCancel

  • - Scientists seek the truth.Politicians BEND science to fit their pre-conceived ideas – and to support their pre-conceived agendas – regardless of the truth.And politicians who masquerade as scientists – or scientists who dabble in politics – confuse the issue.ReplyCancel
