By 7:05 PM

....everyone was fed, watered, bathed, scrubbed, dressed, teeth brushed, books read, and in bed.

The boys have 30 minutes to read in their own beds. The girl has been out cold since 6:45.

The toys are put away, the carpet is vacuumed, the tile floors are steamed, the dishes are done and put away, the recycling is organized and put out for pick-up, and all fifty million loads of laundry is clean and put away.

This is the difference between Mama on her own and Mama when Grandma and Grandpa visit for the afternoon and play with the kids to I can actually get things done. Three cheers for grandparents!!!


  1. Oddly enough having my mother in the house all the time doesn't help with that at all! Woe is me, I guess. :)

    Love the picture! If it was on flickr I'd definitely fav it.

  2. I was wondering how you did it! Grandparents explain it all!!
    P.S. Say hi to your parents for me!

  3. Dara - it's not my photo. It's just MSN clip art, lol. I was busy yesterday - didn't you read? hehe. Sorry to disappoint.

    Jill - it was wonderful - everyone asleep by 7:30, no complaints, no "I'm thistys," no nothing. I need more days like that.


Thanks for reading - I heart comments! Please keep them at least vaguely on topic and respectful, thanks!
