diapers, budgets & paint

stay-at-home mommy by day
program manager by night
children's painter somewhere in between


you know you're a mom when...
- your daughter is on her fifth set of clothes for the day because her lunchtime chicken and rice is covering the first four
- you're on shirt, um, #3? and forget about those nice suede-ish pants you were wearing earlier

and the best...
- you're naked in the tub, trying to wash both a very slippery toddler and yourself, and the smoke detector starts beeping LOUDLY because it's located right outside the bathroom door and you forgot to turn on the fan / shut the door / beat the detector with a hammer and throw it out the window

this was going to be a longer post but em just woke up. wish us luck!

    Ha! And yeah, I've been there. It seems like I do laundry every day but the pile keeps growing.

    Sounds like quite the day!

    Welcome to the club. Remember dues must be paid at the first of the month in leftover, soggy Cheerios and broken goldfish crackers. Club dress code requires at least one food stain acquired from a child. Food served at the club will always be cold and are leftovers from children's plates, selections include mac and cheese, plain pasta, toast, chicken fingers and fish sticks and will be eaten while chasing after a naked toddler. Currently accepting all applicants, no interview required.

    I second Angela, however I wanted to let you know that the food related hazing does have an end (only to be replaced by a test of your eardrums and patience during the tantrum/whine phase). Welcome! Welcome! =)

    PS You still have good pants?! Good for you!

    I commend you for wearing suede-ish pants around a toddler. BRAVE!

    Hope your day got better. :)

    Now, for some fun, wear a white shirt for dinner! :-D
    Having a slippery toddler in a bath tub and any distraction are such stressful combination...
