My daughters 8th birthday was last week and for some reason I totally spaced and forgot to bake her birthday cake! When she came home from school we were talking about what we were doing that evening to celebrate and I remembered I had forgotten the cake! OMGosh! So, I said to my daughter…”Hey! I know how much you love to help mom bake so I thought it would be fun if you helped me bake your birthday cake!” She was so excited to help out and thought it was the best birthday present ever when I let her crack the eggs into the mixing bowl! LOL! Another birthday crisis averted! ~ Kathie
I must admit that I would much rather sit at the computer all day long reading blogs, tweeting and pinning on pinterest than doing any housework. And most of the time I do just that. Then I come up with 80 katrillion excuses why things didn’t get done. Then I bury myself with food and guilt. The next day I get up and do it all again. ~ Pam
So I’m short and shorter people can probably relate to this the most…….
As I’m fighting to get some cleaning done before my mother-in-law comes to see our newborn son, I have found I had to make a list of each room and everything it entails to clean. Today my first day of attempting the LIST I started with the bathroom in the master. It hasn’t been scrubbed in a LONG time because well I wasn’t about to go there at 8 months preggo. I’ve been skipping the ooey gooeys on the ceiling… you know the moisture that builds up and makes yellow spots. BUT, I came up with a solution to those! I used my old swiffer dry and an old scrubby rag and tada! I found the best ceiling and wall scrubber ever! Worked great and took little effort. ~ Denise
