Appreciation

I'm downstairs folding the 8 millionth load of laundry which happens to be socks and king sized sheets, two of my least favorites to fold. Bear is reading a book upstairs to Bophie who will hopefully cave in and take a nap. While folding, I am trying to keep Banana on target with the math worksheet she has already been working on for an hour, and trying to entertain Juliana until I finish.

Bear yells down "Mom, are you busy?"

I respond, "Yes, sweetheart, do you need something?"

Bear comes down the stairs into the kitchen, Banana looks up from staring into space (note she did not look up from the math page), she says to Bear "Moms are ALWAYS busy."

Bear's response, "Mom isn't busy very much, she's on the computer."

Can you guess which of those girls is my favorite today?

The one helping you fold sheets? I don't fold those anymore---I just put them back on the bed!!

Ok, your house sounds like my house. My husband is the one always catching me on the computer. I swear he thinks that's all I do.
Laundry. I hate laundry. I don't mind the folding of clothes but sorting, remembering to move from washer to dryer, keep shirts from wrinkling, putting away, augh. I like folding because that is my sitdown and catch up on DVR'd shows time.
Best of luck, Busy Mom.
