Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

How Sad Is It?

Those of you who know me will find this to be of no great surprise -- you may even find it amusing -- but, in truth, this is really rather pathetic. I made "Chore Charts*" for the boys this week with something for almost every day of the week. They are very excited about them and check them every morning. These charts seem to be a source of empowerment for them and for that I am glad.

The "sad" part is that I'm so bad at housework and seeing what needs to be done on an ongoing basis that I also had to make one for myself. At playing "Martha", I am TehSuck.

* I giggled when making the Chore Charts because all I could think about was Nathan's Job Wheel from Twitch City. Oh Curtis, you wonderful slob!
