1. Personal Space - From the beginning, small children thrive when invading your personal space. Your baby wants to be held? He or she has NO qualms squealing until you pick them up and snuggle them. This is why babies are cute. So we don't mind the invasion so much. Then they get bigger and gain this weird need to try to climb back into your body. Or at least that's what you assume they're doing as they jockey for space on your head.
2. Your Right to be Alone in the Bathroom - You will rarely, if ever, go to the bathroom without a little person "keeping you compa-dee" or at the very least, pounding on the door and little fingers sticking things under the cracks. Efforts to instill a barrier with the lock will result in at least one of your children becoming a stellar locksmith.
3. Regular Showers - Remember the days when you showered every morning or every evening? Remember when you didn't feel the need to lean your face down for a covert sniff to see if you're passable for public interaction? Yeah, me neither. Also, if you manage to get a shower, don't expect to complete it without a little face snatching back the curtain, peering in, and saying, "Mama? Whatcho doing?"
4. Eating Your Whole Plate of Food, By YOURSELF - You can serve the exact same dinner on two plates, giving one to your child and keeping one for yourself and every single time, you'll find your child eying your plate up and saying, "Mommy? I want a bite of YOUR food!" It's even worse when you try to eat something different than what they have. Never mind that they have formerly professed their undying hatred of broccoli. If it's on your plate, it's suddenly as appetizing as a candy bar. But obviously, forget using this to get your kids to eat vegetables. They'll see through your plan in a hot second.
5. White Clothing Items/Dressy Clothes- I think this is a no-brainer. You can only fend off sticky fingers for so long. And if you manage to get dressed to go out, you'll lean down to give your kid a hug and they'll do one of the following: a) Throw-up on you. b) Wipe boogers on you. c) Have a marker in hand when they hug you. Etc.
"But I wanna HUG, Mama!"
It's a darn good thing they're so cute.
