My to do list

  • Do laundry
  • Finish M.'s birthday present
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
  • Go shopping to spend MORE money on things needed for the trip
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
  • Start packing
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
  • Return library books
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
  • Go to the bank
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
  • Go and vote early in our state's primary
  • Pick up the chaos left in the wake of my three small people
  • Do laundry
See a pattern?  With my three adorable small people, it definitely feels as though it's three steps forward and two steps back.  

This is especially true since G. and L. have re-entered the "must change our clothes multiple times in one day" phase.  And even the things I think are out of reach, the little tool-users have managed to get to. Yesterday, they had on the clothes I dressed them in, then they appeared in their taffeta Christmas dresses, I returned them to their clothes for lunch, they had their nap where they removed all items of clothing (including diapers), I returned them to their clothes, later they appeared in pajamas (not the ones they are currently using, but clean ones), they were returned to their clothes for dinner, and finally pajamas for bed.

I'm seriously considering putting myself and the suitcases inside the pen so that my helpers can't help me pack.

As a mom of eight with a three year old who loves the Christmas dresses I'm right there with you. Do Laundry. Do Laundry. Except maybe I just think "do laundry." : )

I found your blog via the Money Saving Mom blog. Thank you for making me smile today.
