Hello!

Today kicked my butt. And I mean really kicked. my. butt.

It started at 5.40am when the same council workers that had been there at 10pm, arrived and started their day of work outside my home. This alerted the dog who deemed it necessary to tell the whole neighbourhood there were strangers afoot! As you might imagine, loud dogs wake babies. In this case, my two.

I’ve been pooped on (twice), pee’d on, thrown up on (again, twice), painted on and scraped mashed potato off my leg.

I may have forgotten deodorant in all the excitement and that, combined with 30+ degree heat and a few sunscreen applications, makes for a smell I’m not quite sure I’ve ever smelt before. There may or may not have been some light bladder leakage as well. Yay for a post-baby body.

You can imagine my disdain when hubby walks in the door from work and shoots straight into the shower.

What did I get out of today? Besides a reality check on my own BO, these two artworks:

and a kiss goodnight from this face:

Bring on tomorrow!

  • 5:40am is a sleep in at our house! Of course, I know my kids will be little roosters and up early so I compensate by going to bed earlier. A bit of extra sleep makes everything a little easier. How cute is that little painted face at the end of this article though! What a sweetie!

  • Oh that made my evening! I had just been sitting in a heap on the couch, looking vaguely at the TV, wondering if I could classify today as a really crappy day…..I think I will and glad someone else is thinking the same!!!!

  • the smile on their faces, the beautiful artworks they make for you, and all that hair you pulled out today, it is all worth it when they are sleeping soundly at night. Down time and a kiss on the forehead goodnight really puts things into perspective and makes me appreciate how rewarding motherhood really is. :)

  • And that makes for a wonderful day. How can you top that? Enjoy it for it doesn’t always repeat itself.

  • Until they grow up to become a little older person, this will be a routine I’m afraid.

  • Those artworks are pretty amazing! I always struggle when we have exceptionally interrupted sleep or early starts, but hey, it’s a mum life. I’m amazed what I can survive on


    • It is amazing how little sleep you can live on. I’d never believed it before I had kids.
