It's Labor Day weekend and we've been working hard and playing hard. I spent an entire day cleaning up the family room/kitchen - trying to get things under control. Maintaining control of all the stuff that comes along with parenting is what I find to be the most challenging aspect of this job. I can deal with the sibling spats and tantrums...as long as the house is in order. I can deal with the rat race of getting kids dressed, fed and out the door to school/practices/parties...as long as the house is in order. I can even deal with doing 7 loads of laundry every week...as long as the house is in order. The problem is that as soon as I get one room tidied up...well, two little hurricanes are off in another room somewhere doing this!
Well, I'd love to write more, but it looks like I have a little more cleaning up to do before the weekend's over. Hmmm...do you think I could get some Federal Disaster Relief money?
