Whew- that was a long one. Almost three full days without really posting. Yeah, I told you guys about the "ordeal" on Saturday but I couldn't see a daggone bolt of lightning inches from my face while hunting and pecking the keyboard and the next two posts were just pics with no swagger so hopefully we're back in working order.
Which brings me to this: working order. What does that mean in your house? It's not that we don't have a routine here. We do. It's just that I constantly want to know what other people are doing and how well their routines work for their household. Could be the age of our children but some nights (or weekends as the case may be) it feels like The Husband and I are playing one collasally long volley of tossing the children back into the other one's court. It's a silent match and we don't talk about who actually "has" the ball but it's there and it can sometimes go on for hours unless one of us calls timeout to check our racket (pee). I'm guessing it's all the same whether you stay at home with children, work from home or work outside of the home- responsibilities lurk and divvying up time spent on the floor with little people dangling from (practically) every appendage is what must go on. Goes with the territory and our territory is Playmobile farm houses and plastic kazoos for now. It won't be long when it will be DMVs and ProActive so believe me, I'm not complaining...just curious and wanted to throw it out there to see what maybe we can incorporate here to shake things up a bit or at the very least change up the serve.
