Things I Have Learned This Week (And It’s Only Thursday)

A few things. Just off the top of my head…
-Five people do not fit comfortably at all in a queen-size bed. Even when four of those people are small.

-When five people are in a queen-size bed, inevitably, one will roll off.

-We need (plush) carpeting around the bed.

-Little girls snore shockingly loudly. And they don’t respond to poking.

-Little boys don’t need sleep. But they do need to have four teddy bears and one battery-powered Thomas the Tank Engine in bed with them at all times.

-Do not take pictures of the circus that is our bedroom at 3:30 in the morning. Because a flash camera just pisses everyone off.

-Nothing in my life seems all that wonderful at 4:15 in the morning.

-We don’t save enough money or recycle as much as we should.  None of our furniture matches.  And didn’t I buy toothpaste this week–did I leave the store without it?

-After three nights of no sleep, I do not make much sense.

-Apparently, stay-at-home mommies cannot call in late to work.  And my bosses have no mercy.

  1. Stay at home moms also do not get sick days which I think may be the worlds biggest injustice!

  2. Little boys definitely do not need sleep. But mommas do.

    Your bed looks just like mine. Lately by morning they are all in ours too. When will we sleep again?

    Hi, this is the first time I am coming to your blog and I LOVED this post. It was funny, true, and adorable! My daughter is known for snoring extremely loud. Hubby and I laugh that such a big sound comes from such a small child. I look forward to reading more!
