It is midday and so far today Evie and I have managed to watch TV, have breakfast, do puzzles, eat more breakfast, have a shower, refuse to get dressed, jump on the trampoline, read books, sing ten million nursery rhymes, take underpants on and off, on and off, on and off, scrub the kitchen floor, empty the dishwasher, stack the dishwasher, vacuum the carpets, wee on the floor, wee in the potty, watch Sesame Street, cook pizza pinwheels, reject pizza pinwheels, paint, eat the paintbrush, draw, pull the inside of the crayons out of their plastic holders, check the mail, play on the slide, play on the swing, look at flowers, play on the scooter, play with some stones, draw on the stones, do some more puzzles, play with lego, stand on a stool, watch play school, read books, cook lunch, eat lunch, clean up from lunch and finally put a toddler to sleep. I somehow managed to fit in breathing but not putting on makeup or using the bathroom.
IT IS ONLY MIDDAY.
Half way through the day and we have run a toddler entertainment marathon which hopefully results in a long rejuvenating sleep for Evie and a vodka on the rocks for me. Just kidding i'll have a wine ha ha or maybe just a tea.
This quote that mum recently sent through really rings true. "The days are long but the years are short".
