This morning I woke up and got in the shower. While I was in the shower, Bennett woke up. I hurried out and changed her diaper. I went downstairs and got her breakfast. Then Will woke up. I fed Will. Then I changed his diaper. Then I cleaned up breakfast. I gave Bennett a bath. She pooped in the tub. I cleaned it up. Then I dressed them, packed diaper bags, put on heavy coats, put on hats and gloves, had a baby spit up on me, took off the coat, changed his outfit again, went to my moms group, and came home.
I fed Bennett lunch. I washed hands. I fed Will. Then he peed on me. Then the dog peed on the couch. I cleaned it up. I walked up and down the stairs 50 times. Then Will spit up on me. I changed his outfit again. I changed my outfit again. Bennett went down for her nap. I had to wash bathmats. They peeled apart in the dryer. I cleaned my dryer out. I vacuumed. Will went down for his nap. Bennett woke up 5 minutes later. I cried. I changed 5 diapers in between.
I folded laundry, I soothed boo boos, I gave hugs, I watched Mickey Mouse, I played with trains, I had squash spit up on me, I gave piggy back rides, I cooked dinner, I made beds, I cleaned rooms, I sang songs, I did dishes (twice) I read about 50 books, I had a pillow fight, I colored pictures, I emptied diaper genies, and I played a fantastic game of hide and seek.
And I am tired. I am very tired. So my question is this- where are the soaps and bon bons that I signed up for when I decided to stay home with the kids? Anyone? Anyone? Not even one bon bon?
