What in the world did you do all day??!!??!!

The previous post and recent conversation has prompted me to share this. For all of us Stay at Home Mommies out there....you'll SO relate.....Mommies in general will know. Now as for the rest of you {uhm hmmm....Daddy....er.. I mean all daddies out there or non believers} this post is for you! It is just a forward I received in my email one day from my mom. {Thanks mama!} Sometimes you gotta love these things. Enjoy!


A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas,
playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front
yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys, sand and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of
toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered
and asked, "What happened here today?"

She again smiled and answered, "You know everyday when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?"

"Yes" was his incredulous reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."
