No way back Wednesday

Yes I am not playing way back Wednesday today as I have no pictures of my drunk in college...I am guessing I could not afford a camera in those days..hee hee

Why do kids want to sleep on their floors or on the couch when they have a perfectly wonderful bed to sleep in??

Why do kids complain when you ask them to out THEIR toys away?

Why does the baby spawn continue to do things when I tell her to stop?

Why does the eldest spawn pick fights with everyone is this house?

Why does the middle spawn cry when her brother even looks at her funny?

Why do I lose my temper after my oldest spawn asks me the same question over.and over ...And everytime I tell him the same answer..NO.??

Why don't I charge these kids rent?

Why does my dog need a bath everyday and why does she always smell?

Why does my cat lay in the corner all day without moving?..How can she hold her bladder that long?

Why am I the only one in the house who knows how the dishwasher works?

Why was I going to run away again??

Why didn't I?

Oh yes..Because it is my job to do all this work and to deal with the kids all day everyday..Because the hubs is out working and making money because that is HIS job..And when he gets home(from his hard day at work in an air condtioned office) ..And if I want to go out and make the money he would be more than happy to stay home and be with them...
Yup that would last about 2 days..And he would be begging to find a job with hard labor and nil for pay..

But that's my job..And why don't I have a retirement plan?..Or vacation time, or sick days, petty cash, company car(oh yes I do..)..Holiday pay, personal time, maternity leave, or fringe benefits?

Gotta go...Have a good day..Toodles

Oh the joys of motherhood right?
I have wondered how a cat can hold their bladder that long myself at times.
You really should talk to your husband about putting money aside for you when he retires. Seriously, alot of people do that who are stay-at-home mom's didn't ya know? Tootles.
I like comming to your blog cause I see the butterfly and it makes me happy :)

When I found your blog back when I did.. I was so excited because I knew raising a family "at home" was your job and listening to your stories would be really important in truly understanding what the heck its like! Phew.. it's been an eye-opening experience ;)

By the way.. I think I'm going to run away from my house tonight.. haha How long do you think it would take the military police to find me?

Stay strong, you seem like a beacon of awesome motherhood and I'm glad to know you in a small way. :)

Oh I so understand you today! When you discover the answers to those questions - sell them - it will be better than winning the lotto - you'll be a hero to all the momma's out there!

That's funny.
Reading that now makes me think twice about having a third child.
Thanks. I think two will be enough for me. LOL.

I can relate completely. I just came back in from taking the kids to the zoo. Thank God that I had a helper. But, why do I do these things to myself? It was fun for everyone. We're all tired. It's too hot. And, definitely, NOT having a third. Now, let me work on that birth control issue again.:) Take care, girlie!

Too bad you don't get paid for it!! I read somewhere that the average stay at home mom is worth over $150,000 a year with all the "jobs" she does. Wouldn't that be nice...

I will be the first to admit, I would rather work than stay home with anyone in my family.
