FULLY CONVINCED?

When you don't have children, you spend a lot of time convincing yourself of all the silver linings about not having children.  For example, you can go to Vegas for a week and watch naughty shows and do whatever you want.  And when you're sick, as I have been since we got home, you can sleep until 9:00 and take naps in the afternoon and remind yourself that it would be so much worse to be sick and have to take care of children.

And I've done such a darned good job of convincing myself of all the silver linings that I am afraid I might have trouble switching my brain back someday...

1 Last time we were down here, my 4 year old daughter came into the room and woke us up. "I feel like I am sick in my tummy." (She'd been a hypochondriac for a few months) "Fine. Go ahead and throw up." We'd just gotten in the night prior, after driving from KS to PA, staying in a hotel for a week with the kids while house hunting, and generally being driven nuts by both of them for the last two weeks. We were tired. The next thing we hear: the sound of a little girl retching on the carpet, right where she stood. Nothing like being dog-tired and having to get out of bed and clean up vomit.

2 I do the exact same thing about having just one child instead of two (or three, or whatever).  As far as going from none to one, for me it so quickly became the new normal that the old life seems like it belonged to someone else.
