I remember when I worked full time thinking "What would I do with all that extra time if I stayed home?". Now I know:
Wake up, think of all the things I want to get done today
Collect dirty laundry, start washing machine
Feed squirming baby against his will
Begin process of unloading dishwasher
Pick up all the (now dirty) silverware Andrew grabbed and threw on the ground
Remove him from the top of open dishwasher door he climbing on while I was picking up silverware
Try to distract him with a toy in order to finish unloading dishwasher
Ignore the sound of magnets from fridge being thrown across the kitchen floor
Stop unloading when he rips Jackson's drawing into many pieces
Try to distract him with yet another toy
Frantically try to finish unloading dishwasher while his back is turned
30 minutes later: task completed!
Take items from dryer to fold
For every two items I fold, Drew grabs one off the couch and runs away laughing and dragging the now unfolded laundry through the house
Remove laundry from dog bowl, trash can, etc. and throw back in to dirty hamper..................
I'm sure you get where I'm going. Two steps forward and one step back.
I'm working on my patience.....and it helps that he's so incredibly cute while being such a busy little boy :)
