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. Reply Jess @ MomEinstein July 18, 2012 - 1:55 pm 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. Reply Alena July 18, 2012 - 2:03 pm TOTALLY a pre-kid problem. Reply Carrie July 18, 2012 - 2:00 pm Haha!! Love these. Especially the one about missing brunch. Oh, my simple pre-kid life. Haha! Reply Krista July 18, 2012 - 2:04 pm There’s nothing good on TV on Saturday afternoons. I guess I’ll just nap. Reply A Man Called Dad July 18, 2012 - 2:11 pm We haven’t had sex in two days, guess I better buy her some flowers. Reply Lindsey C. July 18, 2012 - 2:11 pm cannot like enough. Reply Suzanne July 18, 2012 - 2:21 pm YES YES YES. Especially all the movies!! Reply Joanna July 18, 2012 - 2:27 pm 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. Reply danielle July 18, 2012 - 2:34 pm you are magnificently funny and unwaveringly honest. i love this list. Reply Danielle July 18, 2012 - 3:07 pm My pre-kid problem… Ugghh! I only have enough time to watch 5 episodes of The Sopranos tonight. Reply Marissa July 18, 2012 - 3:27 pm Nothing planned for an afternoon, which book will I read? Reply Janine (Alternative Housewife) July 18, 2012 - 4:28 pm 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. Reply Jill July 18, 2012 - 5:19 pm 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. Reply Janine (Alternative Housewife) July 18, 2012 - 5:24 pm Ahh I see. Mine were small and perky. As was the rest of my body. *sobs* Reply Jill July 18, 2012 - 5:27 pm ::pours a 40 out for our old bodies:: – moment of silence- Reply Christie July 18, 2012 - 4:42 pm I can honestly say that these weren’t really problems for me before. I guess it just depends on your normal lifestyle. Reply Ashley July 18, 2012 - 4:53 pm I’m still pre-kid and these are cracking me up. Especially the milk one. Lol Reply Lisa July 18, 2012 - 5:23 pm 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. Reply Jill July 18, 2012 - 5:32 pm 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. Reply Diane @ DixieJulep July 18, 2012 - 6:23 pm I completely agree with Lisa’s comment. And these are just awesome! Reply Jill Shoemaker July 18, 2012 - 5:51 pm yup that about sums it up! Reply Amy Knoch July 18, 2012 - 5:52 pm “So much time on my hands, I need a new hobby, but what?” Reply Wendy Blackwell July 18, 2012 - 6:03 pm “What will I do with this extra money I have?'”. Reply Rachel Atkinson July 18, 2012 - 6:33 pm The local movie theater has shows for $4 at 10am….I can’t drag myself out of bed that early on a Saturday. Reply Tobasco July 18, 2012 - 7:15 pm 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. 🙂 Reply Holly Noonan Stewart July 18, 2012 - 7:31 pm Oh no, ran out of books to read, guess I will have to go buy another! Reply Erin Richardson July 18, 2012 - 9:07 pm 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. 🙂 (& now guest are forced to sleep on a pull out sofa- lol) Reply Melonie J Batres July 18, 2012 - 9:52 pm lol, hell yeah! Reply Aunna July 18, 2012 - 10:20 pm 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. Reply Alexandra July 18, 2012 - 10:37 pm These are brilliant. Truly. Signed, Girl With The #PreKidProblems, except for brunch. Allergies mean I skip brunch. 🙂 Reply Elaine A. July 18, 2012 - 10:55 pm Ha ha ha! I can totally relate to the shopping one. Reply Jessica July 18, 2012 - 11:01 pm Love every one of these. Especially the jeans 🙂 Reply Larks July 19, 2012 - 2:54 am 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.” Reply Leticia July 19, 2012 - 6:43 pm “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?” Reply Good Girl Gone Green July 19, 2012 - 9:01 pm Funny! There is nothing on TV tonight. I guess I will read a book! 🙂 🙂 Reply Manticore Pinion July 19, 2012 - 10:47 pm I’ll take these any day over a snot-nosed little brat. Reply CourtneyP July 19, 2012 - 11:59 pm Surprised no one mentioned this: This car ride is so long and boring! Reply Kelly July 20, 2012 - 8:43 am 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. Reply Ami July 23, 2012 - 8:18 am This is awesome. Here’s my contribution: “I have so many nice clothes that I have to go the dry cleaners weekly.” Reply K August 17, 2012 - 6:47 pm 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. 🙁 I am just enjoying having awesome boobs while they last. It’s new to me. 😀 Mine: “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. Reply Christine Will Destroyyouall November 29, 2012 - 3:23 pm Yet every single one of these ‘problems’ are given up willingly. Made bed, lie in. Reply http://poweryourjourney.com/Car_Insurance_For_16_Year_Old_Male.php October 21, 2015 - 4:39 am You’ve got it in one. Couldn’t have put it better. Reply http://web2see.space/macaos.com February 18, 2016 - 1:01 pm That’s a wise answer to a tricky question Reply http://allurls.online/russhemmis.com February 20, 2016 - 2:50 pm Me dull. You smart. That’s just what I needed. Reply auto insurance College Park MD March 1, 2016 - 11:43 am Wow! That’s a really neat answer! Reply auto insurance Newport Beach CA March 9, 2016 - 5:28 am You’ve got to be kidding me-it’s so transparently clear now! Reply best auto insurance in Carrollton TX March 22, 2016 - 12:53 pm Wow, that’s a really clever way of thinking about it! Reply http://webstats.pw/talk.guardian.co.uk March 24, 2016 - 7:08 am Thanks for contributing. It’s helped me understand the issues.

That’s cleared it up for me Reply http://www.feedinghelp.info/ April 14, 2016 - 10:27 am Touchdown! That’s a really cool way of putting it! Reply car insurance May 15, 2016 - 9:04 pm 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? Reply car insurance May 20, 2016 - 10:17 am 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. Reply http://www.torontolimodepot.com/ July 8, 2016 - 9:54 am 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. Reply http://www.torontolimodepot.com/ July 8, 2016 - 10:16 am 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.
