This is for all Mom's out there, past and present, young or old, you'll all identify with this ... !

No 'proper' post tonight, I've been at my Son's showrooms all day sitting at the desk drinking coffee and reading a book, making executive decisions, dealing with reps and advising customers.  It's tiring being a high-flyer, I've come home and changed from my business suit into my usual 'bag lady' couture and am now covered in cats with my feet up. 

I thought you might like this:

" A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pyjamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all arou...nd the front yard. The door of
his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.
He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pyjamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’
She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?’ ‘Yes,’ was his incredulous reply. She answered,
‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’"


  1. Oh, how very true. This gave me a chuckle. X

  2. This is GREAT! It is so true! Hope I can get my husband to read it.

  3. I'm sure hubby thinks a fairy comes in every day and does the work.
