But it's amazing how different "not doing much" looks now, with 5 kids, from how it looked a few years ago when I was childless. Perhaps a lazy day then would be snuggling in front of the telly with a blanket, checking my e-mail a few times, eat, have a bath.
My lazy day today included the following:
Wash a load of diapers
wash a load of laundry
nurse multiple times
giggle and laugh with kids and baby
change many diapers
bake loaf of bread
make silly videos with kids
emergency shower 2 year old who pooped all over
clean up spilled poop on floor
fetch many cups of water and miscellaneous requested items
answer questions about the solar system
help 2 year old go to potty
feed and water bunnies
misc mundane tasks like changing bed sheets, putting away some laundry etc
colors and books with kids
help kids with spelling activities
get a couple computer projects finished
get out sewing machine to sew but find it's broken to do some stitch ripping instead
tidy livingroom (twice)
And I feel guilty that I didn't do enough, because there was much on the todo list that didn't get seen to. There was no TV involved today, or snuggling on couches but there was some Internet surfing and sitting on my bed. Rene worked hard all day, came home and cooked a meal and helped with cleaning. I'm a lucky woman.
But there's no rest for the wicked. I guess that means Rene has recently been a little more wicked than I???
