Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist?
Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed.
For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?
Two words: Disposable Income
It was hard to pick one thing from that poll, but damn it I miss going to the bathroom on my own. My son literally kicks the door in, then sits on the side of the tub. I told him today to stay outside the closed door and I could see his little baby shadow under the crack between the floor and the door.
An actual saving account...
I dream of the day when his priorities, won't put me in the red.
Peace and quiet around the house.
That would be, ALL of the above.
Conquering the world with cool swords!
The ability to pick up and move/travel at a moments notice.
I certainly wouldn't trade him for anything, but it sure would be nice if kids were more portable.
8-12 hour gaming sessions interrupted only for more snacks or bio breaks. Being able to watch anything I wanted in the living room without having to worry about giving someone nightmares, ensuring I would lose more of my bed. Peace and quiet. Being able to study on my own terms. NOT sounding like my parents!
Wooter to blame for sellout: SumDuud
Sellout time: 8:11:25 AM Central Time
Sleeping later than 7am
Not having kids that hate me.
All of the above. But we did reinstate Friday as date night, once the kids were old enough for a baby sitter
I guess I haven't been a dad long enough (18 months) to miss anything yet.
Hmm... I don't miss anything on the list because I still have them all. And I have 3 kids.
Taking a shower whenever I feel like it!
Being able to have sex anytime and any place in the house I want and not have to be 'quiet' about it.... because I'm a screamer *nudge nudge wink wink*
And 'naked days' (when we don't put clothes all day) can't happen unless it's sleepover at grandma's.... *sigh*
Eating food at the temperature it was served. (Hot soup, cold sandwiches, etc.)
The days when we could be out of the house for an entire day and not have to worry about scheduling naps/food/changing stations/driving time/running time.
Sleeping on more than just a sliver of my King sized bed.
two things: shopping in peace and online gaming
Not having to decide between a shower, a nap, or food during my 'free' time. But I wouldn't want it any other way!
My kids are grown and have their own houses, so I have all the above plus peace and quiet, and disposable income.
the time to sit and read in peace (and not be interrupted every 2 mins)

I am dying here because that EXACT same thing happened to me yesterday. In fact, it was the inspiration for this poll.
I was the 6% that chose other because it is allllllll of the above....and having money...I miss having money.
no boogers in everything
the things I miss most about my pre-child life are my pre-child body and my pre-child money
What about those of us with no kids? (I shop kids Woot to spoil my nieces and nephews).
I guess the only thing I really miss is sleep and having me time. Other than that, I am extremely grateful to be a mother because it got my mind right
I miss all of the above
Being able to just "run to the store" without working around nap/feeding times, and without having to do the complicated house-to car-to carseat-to covered shopping cart-back to carseat-back to car-and then somehow back into home WITH groceries transfers that such a trip requires.
Pre-child????? What the hell is that! In the womb? Lemme think about that.
Taking a leisurely relaxing bath without questions, little eyes and pounding on the door.
