In an Ideal World



We would not be living so far away from our families; our children would have easy access to both sets of grandparents and can grow up playing with their cousins. (But then we wouldn’t be living in this exciting, multi-cultural place and experiencing the many things that we would otherwise not be experiencing.)

Neither Chris nor I have to work, so that we can take off with the children whenever and wherever we want; so that we can both be present at all of Josh’s and Zoë’s activities.

I would have endless patience and I would never feel irritated when the children interrupt whatever it is that I’m doing.

I would be a very organized person and I would be able to find exactly what I want, when I need it.

Babies are born potty-trained.

I would be in bed by 10:00 pm.

There would be no need for products like Spanx.

Men would enjoy chick flicks as much as women do.

Our bodies do not go south as we age.

There would not be a need for anonymity in the blogosphere.

Lists like this do not exist.


(What would you add to this list?)

10:00PM???

Love your ideal world. Really got me thinking. What came to mind first was....in an ideal world there would be no abusers, child molesters or mean people period!

Nezzy said...

I would like world peace. LOL :o) No, really. Just think if our world had to wars, violence and was full of peace. In a perfect world my Hubby would throw his newspaper and other reading material in the trash vs. over the recliner arm on to the floor for me to pick up later.

Have a fantastically peaceful day full of blessings!!!

"Our bodies do not go south as we age." I wish that was true!

I would add..."A man will never break your heart"

Have a lovely day ♥

harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan ... and ... world peace.

(That's a quote from Miss Congeniality, y'all. I mean, in case you didn't get that.)

Good timing. I too am thinking about anonymity, but am moving towards disclosure.

Alicia said...

I would say, eat all you want without gaining weight!

golonghorns said...

Love the list. I'll add childbirth wouldn't hurt and men would share more in the task of birthing! :)

Babies being born potty trained would be heaven for me! I have triplets and a toddler. It's 'potty central' round here!

The potty trained baby would be awesome.

You pretty much summed up everything I would love to in an ideal world. Except for the grandparents issue. My mom and stepdad seem to want very little to do with my kids. It's too bad they are closeby...they might as well be 10,000 miles away with how often they see the kids.

I think I would just like your list-lol.

Jennifer said...

Hahaha! Here, here! I agree with you whole heartedly! Now, I am off to eat a Nutella sandwich. I need to make sure I make use of my Spanx... ;-)

HeartsMakeFamilies said...

Ok I want your ideal world now...mine just pooped out lol.

blueviolet said...

I'd love for the bills to be paid automatically without me even having to worry about it.

The spanx comment made me laugh!

I would like to add that my metabolism would always exceed my calorie intake.
