As of 9:49 pm, my eleventh load of laundry was in the washing machine, only four bath towels remained on the laundry room floor, school work for the day is done, the house is picked up, all six children had received three meals today and are now in bed, Blaine is still gone at his meeting, and a good book beckons me from my due-to-be laundered couch.
Whew. I would rather not replay this day again any time soon.
I paid out $.25 in extra jobs for the day, (kids work cheap!) the fridge is washed out, the table legs are clean (er) and Brady had a hair cut and is looking cleaner and fluffier than the bath towels that I did get washed.
As for the age-old discussion on why we’ve purchased beds for our children, it still remains a topic.
The reasons we wonder why are so clearly displayed by Ruby tonight.
