It is currently 12:30 1:30 (sometimes hard to finish what I start) and so far today I have*:
Changed 6 diapers.
Fed 2 children breakfast and snacks and lunch.
Fed myself breakfast (Egg beaters with a little turkey sausage and a piece of wheat toast – no poptarts shoved in the ole pie hole here today)
Vacuumed again. (Seriously, it is January – why is the dog molting huge clumps of hair?)
2 1/2 loads of laundry
Unloaded the dishwasher
Sang “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” 4 times and the ABC song 3 times.
Watched 1/2 of RHOC. (Carla keeps professing her love so I had to check it out. Only saw 1/2 because it overlapped with Dora and there is no wrath like the wrath of a toddler deprived of Dora.)
Watched Dora with Sabrina.
Danced with the girls.
Cleaned the toilet.
Made a couple of pithy remarks on my favorite social media sites.
Fixed baby doll several times and zipped the over stuffed toddler purse several times and turned down the volume on no less than 7 toys.
Read a few blogs.
Read 8 books to Sabrina.
Thrown the ball for the dog in the backyard in hopes of getting him to quit whining and lie down already.
Cleaned spit up off myself 3 times.
Done the 30 Day Shred (I am going to have to teach Sabrina to dial 911 if I continue with this. Jillian is a bitch.)
Returned 4 emails.
Showered and dressed myself.
My wonderful, supportive hubby called around 12:30. He asked what I was doing. I said “nothing” but mentioned both girls were asleep (this condition lasted for less than 15 minutes). He says “So why aren’t you sleeping too?” You notice I haven’t mentioned lunch for myself yet? And that I still have laundry in the dryer and more to do. Plus I had to write this blog post as I chuckled over his cute but clueless question in the shower.
*No, I don’t think I’ve accomplished anything remarkable today. I do less in a week than many moms do daily. Just pointing out that men have little idea what a day in the life of mommy looks like.
