Top 10 Things I Look Forward To

  • Posted on April 26, 2011 at 7:43 AM

I have the possibility of a new job with a significant pay increase.  Whether or not that happens, here’s a Top 10 list of creature comforts I look forward to:

10) A Master Suite Bathroom

I want a bathroom that is dedicated to my get-ready-in-the-morning supplies without having my toothbrush toppled by the very sticky hairdryer my step-son uses to help create his mo-hawk.

9) A Minivan that does NOT drink 1-3 Quarts of Oil a Week

As if gas wasn’t bad enough.  And, as long as I’m wishing, GPS and air conditioning (that works) would be nice, too.

8) A Swing-Set that is Built on Level Ground

A swing-set should not shimmy and shake.  I’m sure of this.  Really, I am.

7) No Food in Bedrooms

Tripping over a box of Cheerios in the middle of the night is just messy.

6) Furniture Purchased Specifically with the Boys in Mind

HEAVY-DUTY

5) Vacations

Stretching the imagination, we’ve had two in the last thirteen years of marriage.  One with kids, one without.  It’d be nice if we could have a vacation once or twice a year.

4) An iPad/Laptop for Each Child

No more fighting over whose turn it is—though, there may be whining when I take them all away and send them outside to get dirty. (see #8)

3) A Bedroom for Each of My Boys

Right now the older two sleep in the living room, because they’d rather not share a room with Alex or Ben—who can definitely NOT share a room with each other.

2) The Opportunity to Hire My Mom as a Full-Time Nanny

For me, someone I know already loves my kids.  For her, a job with fewer stressful issues.  It’s totally win-win.  Plus, I’ll ensure she has health insurance.

1) A Master Bedroom with a Door the LOCKS!!!

No more surprises (from my kids) in my bed.  Please!!!
