What do you do all day?
A hour after I had scrubbed the kids' bathroom from top to bottom, I returned to find it covered with a whole tube of toothpaste. The counter had the most, but the walls, the floor, the bathmat, the mirror...they were all covered too.
My friend told me the other day, that the question was posed, What does a stay at home mom do all day? and the answer was that they spend most of their day just trying to keep the children alive.
As I stood there in the bathroom that I had already cleaned three times that day, I thought to myself, She is so right! The portion of the day that I do not spend trying to keep them from killing themselves or each other, I spend trying not to kill them myself.
