There is a reason women entered the workforce and it had nothing to do with war and Rosey the Riveter (sp?)....
All before noon my day included:
*2 dirty diapers
*pulling 2 full rolls of toilet paper out of the toilet
* many peepee attempts in the potty
*rinsing off a fake flower that was watered in the toilet
* Ethan removing his clothes and diaper and sitting in the sand box in the short time it takes to walk up the stairs and lay a sleeping Nora on the couch.
*rinsing sand from Ethan's bum - which also included the most successful peepee attempt in the bathtub
*a walk in the wagon - helps maintain everyone's sanity with the quite and peacefulness
*a few tantrums (this of course means major 2 y.o. breakdown due to something like mommy moving the blocks off the chair)
*Starting a pot of homemade vegetable soup - yep Martha Stewart watch out
*Barney - allows for a few minutes of cleaning on the fly
*oh I forgot, with the new found ability to peepee we think it is funny to take diaper off and peepee on the floor. picture mommy chasing naked Ethan to put on diaper for him to just laugh and peepee in a new area when he stops - after which he turns into an angel child and is ready for naptime after lunch.
So... Laurie you gave those wonderful truffles to me as a going away present for a reason and it had something to do with sanity. If anyone is enjoying my craziness - I am out of these wonderful truffles please send emergency supply of chocolate.
