Remember when you unwound from the week with three martinis and a dance-off that lasted till 2 a.m.? Well, now that you’re a parent we are betting your “unwind time” looks a little different. Here are the ten luxuries that every parent wishes for.

1. A bathroom security guard.
A burly bouncer to stand outside the bathroom door and prevent anyone from barging in or shouting requests or grievances in the general direction of the sacred space.
2. A full-time broom operator.
They follow behind your brood 24 hrs a day sweeping up crumbs, cereal, pet fur and, yes, even splattered yogurt.
3. A bedtime genie.
Your three wishes are “get in bed, go to sleep and stay asleep.” Granted.
4. An all-expenses paid night in a hotel.
All alone, with high thread-count sheets and an Ambien.
5. A birthday gift delivery app.
Just enter the party date, age, and birthday kid’s interest, and an all 24 birthday parties of your kids classmates are taken care of.
6. A personal chef who specializes in packed lunches.
You will never battle with bento boxes again.
7. A full interior car detail (carseat included).
They will remove Every. Single. Cheerio.
8. A professional photo organizer.
They will open up IPhoto, and they won’t leave until everything is sorted by date and event, your children all have respectable, physical albums and there’s a back-up of it all on flash drives.
9. A butt-wiper.
10. An at-home masseuse.
One that won’t judge you for wanting to stream the new season of Orange is the New Black during the rub down.
