It's Official

It's Official... I am a wife and a mother.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't mind cooking for him, doing his laundry, editing his paper, heck writing his papers.
I don't mind changing poopy diapers, middle of the night feedings, and grumpy days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That is all easy compared to...
*cleaning up Maisey's puke for 4 days
*trying to balance Pedialyte with 1/2 strength formula so she doesn't become dehydrated, or malnourished
*cleaning Shaun's NASTY puke from 2:30 am - 4:00 am. (He obviously didn't make it from bed to the bathroom in enough time!)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have since learned that Maisey's puke is much more attractive to clean up then adult puke!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this doesn't make you a loving wife and mother, I don't know what does!

Hey, I guess I should look at the bright side: My house just got a deep clean. My sheets, the area rug in our hall, the bathroom rug, the toilet seat cover, and the shower curtain all need to be washed, the carpet in our bedroom, the hall, and the family room has all been scrubbed by hand, the bathroom floor is now spotless, and the toilet (inside and out) has been scoured.
