My “babysitters” will be gone tomorrow. <insert screeching halt sound>
I have enjoyed some flexibility in the house this summer with my ever-present 8 and 6-year-old. Tomorrow it is “Just the Two of Us”. Rhett and I versus the world from 8:30am to 4:00pm. No more can you watch Rhett while I _____________, no more I just have a quick MOPS call to make can you play trucks, and no more I will be right back and escape to the laundry room by myself. WOW!
A rude awakening is coming towards me tomorrow. Please don’t think I don’t enjoy my darling daring 2-year-old. But he is a destroy and conquer kind of personality. Folding laundry is a joke. He stomps through my piles laughing all the way. If I am cleaning toilets he tries to help by trying to use his blanket to wipe off the sides of it. (AHHHHH) Last example, if I am unloading the dishwasher he still tries to stand on the open door and bounce. Seriously kiddo!!
So since I had this revelation early in my day. I headed upstairs at 8:30 am to clean everything possible. You would think the Queen of England was coming over later today. I have dusted, swept, washed mirrors, scrubbed toilets, hung up all laundry I could find and straightened all 4 rooms and vacuumed. Oh and scrubbed the showers and bathtubs. I was a woman possessed. I finally emerged and came downstairs to blog real quick before I had to get back to reality of 3 kids on the last day before school starts.
The big kids will be relieved and my little one will feel gypped when they head for the hills to play upstairs sans him!
The rest of the day will be focused on the kids and tomorrow I will tackle the main floor… well maybe the next few days since Rhett will be my big helper.
If you are revving up for a school year starting, what are you cramming in? I chose cleaning!!
