More busy days

Joseph is keeping me pretty busy these days. I won't know what to do with myself once he's in school. Its going to be such a big change for all of us.

The other day I ran into a woman I used to work with that I haven't seen in 4 years or so. She asked where I was working and I said I was a stay at home mom. She laughed and said "Oh gee, that's a real rough life!". I laughed too but when I thought about it later I was a little annoyed. Most of the time if you were to ask someone what they did for a living and then laughed and mocked their career after they told you, it would be considered pretty rude. I'm guessing she wouldn't have liked it if I had said "Oh, and I see you're still working as a cashier! Really using your brain aren't you? Haha!"

Anyway, if she thinks it's so easy all the time I would invite her to come and trade places with me today. So far my day has included a 1 hour tantrum, Joseph stripping off his pants in front of 4 other people, a nose bleed from Elle throwing her head back against my nose and having to clean up a pile of runny poop from all over the bathroom floor. And the toilet. And the stairs.

So, in other news, there may be some news to announce in a little while but I won't really know anything until after September 11th. No, I'm not pregnant nor am I involved in a terrorist plot. I'll go into it further later. But for now I smell something stinky and I'm just praying that this time it's Elle.

Damn. I totally thought you were going to say you were pregnant.

Damn, who had the bloody nose, you or Elle??

Did the stay at home Mom thing, did the working thing, working is easier and the hours are better, but far less rewarding!

As a stay-at-home mom to be, it really rattles my cage when people make comments like that.

My sister worked after her first baby then had the second one fairly quickly thereafter and she tried working part-time. It was far too much time with logistics for her to work part-time, so they made the decision for her to stay home. And have baby number three.

It kills me when ''friends'' imply she somehow has it ''easy'' lolling about at home with three kids under 4. I am anticipating frequent breakdowns with just one on the way, heh.

Yeah, but it was damn funny when Joseph took off his pants.
