Haircuts and watercolors

Just another day in paradise for me. My typical day consists of a whole lot of silly trivial tasks. All of which rarely have and end product.

Today I did 13 loads of laundry
-washed, dried, folded and put away

cleaned 2 bathrooms,

washed 2 loads of dishes,

vacumed the family room twice,

set up a V-smile 3 different times,

brushed 4 sets of teeth (including my own),

sent 30 cookies to school with Bug,

killed 30 minutes driving around so that Sunshine could get a longer nap,


sent and received about 20 different ICQ messages.

But the only 2 things out of any of that was Sunshine wanted to do some "intense" painting. Her words.

Then I also had to give Peanut a haircut.

* Notice the before and after pictures.

So basically this is the only proof that I did anything today. No wonder people get down on stay at home moms :) I may as well have spent the day eating bon-bons. Because frankly my house is already thrashed again and my laundry hamper is filling up fast.

Yes dear - cleaning house is like threading beads onto a string with no note tied at the end. You can spend the rest of your life trying to get it done and it never will get there. So, you enjoy the kidlets while you have them, and the work will always be there. Enjoy now.
You hit it well with one of your favorite quotes on the side of your blog. "Life isn't about waiting for the storm (or the rain) to pass . . It's about learning to dance in the rain."

Thank you for the sacrifices you and your rock star husband make to be home with these precious grandkids. My heart is full of love and gratitude. Have a great day.
