A mother's work is never done

Ever feel like you're just going in circles? Before I became a SAHM I thought that it must be the easiest job in the world. You stay home, play with your kids and life is good.when they take that 3 hour afternoon nap you can catch up on your TV shows, read a book or take a nap.
Surely my job chasing after 15 three year holds had to be harder then staying home with one or two little people right?

Wrong! It is not even noon and so far today I have:
*Changed 8 diapers 5 of which were poppy
*Taken out the trash because of previously mentioned poppy diapers
*Feed Ella and Madeline 4 bottles
*Washed 10 bottles - 6 from night time feedings and 4 from this morning
*Made Willow breakfast
*Folded 2 loads of laundry and started a third
*Dressed 3 children
*Changed 2 outfits because of spit up and a blow out
*Changed out the crib bedding
*Watched Finding Memo with Willow

Being a SAHM is not nearly as glamorous as they make it to be on these "Real Housewives" shows. Come follow me in my pajamas and unwashed hair, dealing with a screaming teething 2.5 year old, hanging diapers and wiping puke up off the floor and I'll show you how it's done.

Mamaw's Place is giving away an awesome 4 piece 31 gift set. The set includes a a tote bag, lunch tote, mini zipper pouch and wallet Head over and check it out!

Things My Kids Break

So like most mothers I don't buy very much for myself. Since Willow was born I can count the number of things that were purchased just for me. The total is maybe 6 things and I'm even including my Vera Bradley diaper bag that i carry all their junk in in that count. When tax returns came in I decided to really splurge and spent a whole $400 on a new laptop for myself. Even that was taken over by the children. Willow is pretty much the only one who has used it to watch movies.
So this morning I'm up and changing babies while Willow watches The Wiggles (can I tell you how much I hate The Wiggles?! Thanks MeeMee for buying the most annoying videos in history). Theyre busy singing about waking up Jeff for the 5th time this morning while all this mommy can think about is going back to sleep. I'm thinking maybe Jeff has the right idea when suddenly there is silence. 30 seconds of glorious silence followed by those words every mother dreads "uh oh". She had tried to take out the DVD to switch it for Alice in Wonderland and broke the CD drive. So now the drive won't close and I have a very angry 2 year old screaming to watch "The WayWells".I hate those men in their brightly colored shirts and poorly executed dance moves but now I'm really starting to miss them...
