Welcome to Take One of May’s Secret Subject Swaps. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
My prompt is this: Imagine yourself with no children, where would you be and what would you be doing? If you have no children, imagine yourself with children, how do you think life would be different?

If I had no children:
Eating would be much different. I could eat grown up foods when I wanted, and no one would complain about it. Or wear it.
I would travel, and no one would be fighting in the backseat or complaining about the destination. Or wearing Wal-Mart bags on their heads.
I would be fabulously in shape, since I would be able to work out and do things like take walks, take long bike rides, and do yoga without anyone protesting.
My house would be clean.
(Though I must say my house, however messy that it is, doesn’t look like a drunken Barbie orgy took place. Oh poor Flynn Ryder-it must hurt to be passed out in that pose…)
I would sleep, perchance to dream and not be awakened by a little one at 6 am on a Saturday “Mommy you need to GET UP!” (Some people are just too perky that early…)
But I would NOT have:
Original artwork for free. Like this, um thing.
The experience of seeing the world as a child sees it.
Free comedic entertainment (I think he’s trying to read someone’s shirt while running those bases).
The truth is, although there are times when I would like to just be able to have a day away, I was a very boring person before my kids came along. I really don’t want to imagine a life without them.
This post is written for all the Moms out there. Happy Mother’s Day ladies!
