6 / 7
"I want to wake up naturally and refreshed. I want someone else to make breakfast ... I want all seven of my kids to get ready for church ... with no whining or grumping. We all go to church and no one has to get up and go pee and everyone is good. Then we come home and all have a nice day. I want to hang out with the kids, maybe at a park or something. And I want them to get really worn out. But not so worn out that I'm exhausted, too! They go to bed without complaining or crying and I get to go out to dinner with my mom. No guilt, no worries, just dinner. Then, I come home to kids in bed and get to hang out with my husband and we have a glass of wine. That way I get to do it all -- I get to hang out with my kids, my mom and my husband with no stress, no crying, no guilt and no worry. And maybe a movie before bed. It's perfect."
