I am quite proud of the progress I've made today! Two loads of laundry are done and folded (not put steps), which is huge for me because I loathe laundry and it tends to live in the dryer until I need to dry a new load. Did a quick clean of all three bathrooms, took big H for some playtime at McDonalds, really cleaned the kitchen and swept the floors...oh and I did some exercising too. It's not HUGE progress, but it's significantly more than I'm used to accomplishing by 2:30 in the afternoon.

The sweeping took forever yall. I'm determined to make Ryland like the sling Jenny got me so I'll put her in it at home and just walk around trying to help her fall in love...then I got the bright idea to sweep with her in it. SOOOOO not the way for a not-so-savy sweeper to get her baby used to a sling. But it's done.

And I'm just now posting this at 4:30 because she nursed forEVER then we went to Target to get some batteries where she decided to have another blowout. My daughter likes to reserve her bowl movements for public places. Sigh.

I'm about to get working on whatever I'm making for dinner too...and by dinner I mean the dinner I'll make at my parents house. It's not because I'm a baby about being alone, it's because they need to see their grandkids....promise :)

On my to-do list for tomorrow:

1. organize the kid's rooms (again...they like to un-do my work)
2. go through my closet...pack up maternity clothes and get a pile of donate clothes ready

um, ya...that should take up enough time!

My laundry lives in the dryer forever too-and I didn't even just have a baby. You totally have an excuse :) I leave it there until I need a something to wear and then fish it out, one item at a time. Not a good habit.
Thanks for the comment-your baby is so cute! I guess when I read your blog, I'm viewing my life in a couple months...
I haven't thought of the easel thing-Jakson might really like one of those. I've seen a cool one at IKEA, I might have to go and make a purchase (I know, darn I have to go shopping at IKEA). Thanks!

My luandry makes from dirty baskets to clean basket, it is never folded or hung and certainly never put away!!! Great job with the baby steps!!

Seriously, in 18 years - you'll likely have a very clean (and empty) house. Enjoy the children while they are children.

There will be time enough to clean when they leave for college.

I think you are doing a great job for having 3 kids, one of which being a newborn! Have fun!
