Things People Without Children Don't Appreciate, But Should


Putting on shoes and never finding Cheerios in them

Being able to pee--any time you want--without having to figure out what to do with the kids, and then completing the task without interruption


Watching TV shows during the day that include bad words, bad deeds, bad ideas, and bad examples

Shopping without considering what will make an infant or toddler or child or pre-teen happy

Leisurely scrolling through feeds, reading emails, posting blogs, playing games

Having a clean car


Having empty space in your house


Talking on the phone without a barrage of questions and "shows" happening on your side of the call


Not being randomly tackled and smothered with hugs and kisses when you're trying to get something done
