Reading Facebook, Playing Angry Birds

Posted: October 4th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Parenting | Tags: SAHM Fail | 4 Comments »

Shit is going to get REAL tomorrow when my husband starts working from home twice a week.  I might as well share with all of you what he’s going to find because the secret will be out soon!

I’m the 2011 equivalent of an 80’s housewife watching soaps and eating Bon Bons.

Sure, I get the boys dressed and onto the bus in the morning, but it’s a crapshoot whether or not I make it out of my jammies before they are dropped off 3 hours later.  Thank God for Crocs and hoodies!

The house?  Let’s just say I am running around the last 45 minutes of the day trying to make it look like I’ve done something.  Anything.  Usually the dishes win because cleaning up the toys is a losing battle and laundry is best saved for after 11pm when I can spread out on the living room floor.

So, what do I do?

Watch Sprout.

Check Facebook.

Make Lunch


Put everyone down for a nap and ignore the screams of agony because OMGSleeeeeepNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Play Angry Birds on my phone.

Yes.  Angry Birds.  I might be the last person in America to get Angry Birds on my phone and I swear I could play for hours.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

So there you go.  My kids will only know me as a pile of curly hair surrounding a shiny new phone.

I think I’m going to be doing a heluva lot more running around now that someone is home to keep me accountable.

Help me.
