Almost 90% of parents in a new survey said having kids was the best thing they’ve ever done.  But 70% also said they underestimated how much HARDER life would be.  Here are the top ten things parents miss about not having kids . . .

1.  Getting to be lazy on the weekend.

2.  A clean and tidy house.

3.  Total peace and quiet while you’re watching TV.

4.  Getting to leave the house whenever you want, without worrying about a babysitter.

5.  Spending money without worrying about your budget so much.

6.  Taking a shower or bath without being interrupted.

7.  Date nights.

8.  Going to the bathroom without being interrupted.

9.  Being able to take a vacation any time of year, not just in the summer.

10.  Getting a good night’s sleep more often.

A few more from the top 50 include going out with friends more often . . . not being asked “WHY” all the time . . . watching R-rated movies . . . the freedom to swear whenever you want to . . . the luxury of doing nothing when you’re hung over . . . and being able to listen to YOUR favorite music in the car.
