The Difference

Akin to an old post I did HERE, I was thinking the other night about the differences between us. The hubster and I, specifically.

Jamie got home 9:30ish p.m. and I finally got to head for the shower.

My version:
  • Go to the bedroom to get my pj's.
  • Realize I still have a basket of clothes sitting on the bed waiting to be put away
  • Put away the clothes
  • While I'm putting a dish towel in the drawer in the kitchen, I realize the sink is still full of dishes
  • Wash the dishes
  • As I'm washing the dishes, I notice one of charlotte's bottles to wash
  • That reminds that I should get a bottle ready for her for if she wakes in the night
  • I mix the formula and put it in the fridge
  • Yell out, "Jamie we're getting short on milk, can you remember that tomorrow?"
  • Head to the bathroom again
  • Go to the linen closet to get a towel
  • See that Sarah has knocked over the stack of facecloths
  • Straighten and refold the facecloths
  • Straighten up the counter top and give it a quick cleaning off
  • Pull back the shower curtain
  • Pick up the toys in the bottom of the tub left from the girls bath
  • Wring out a facecloth left in the bottom of the tub
  • Go to throw facecloth in the laundry basket, basket is full
  • Bring basket to the laundry room
  • Go back to the shower again
  • Turn on the water...and FINALLY....
  • Shampoo, soap up, shave, in as little a time as possible just in case cause, ya know, the baby might need me in the five minutes I so selfishly took to myself.
Hubsters version:
  • Get up
  • Tunnel vision to the bathroom
  • Grab a towel off the hook
  • Turn on the water
  • Shower
  • Done!
Any other Mommies out there feelin' me??

Baa haaa haaa ...that is SOOO how it is,isn't it??? I'm glad I'm not the only one in that boat..but I am TRYING to train my kids to SEE those things but yeah... it isnt going soo well! Then again, maybe they do see it and just ignore it!

My oldest(while watching Hording- buried alive) said, Mom,I`m glad our house isn`t like that! I sarcastically rolled my eyes and said -Good thing mom picks up and keeps on for you to pick up after yourself,isn`t it? He didn`t say anything after. lol lol
