Here is just a sampling of what was heard while I was trying to sneak in a few extra minutes:
Front door opening. Front door slamming.
"Mom can we have Rice Krispie treats for breakfast?"
"Don't! You'll drown the hamster! "
"AHHHH! The hamster peed! "
Hysterical giggling. More giggling. Silence. Too much silence...then "MMMOMMMM!!!!!
I am sure you will agree that these are just the things you want to hear when you are trying to fall asleep.
So, I did what any sane mom would do- I buried my head with blanket and figured the nanny could handle everything when she arrived.
But, then I remembered, I AM THE NANNY.
So after coffee was made, pop tarts popped, and the mess evaluated I decided to break out my new Mrs. Meyer's Counter Top Spray in Basil and dust off my Judds Greatest Hits CD. Yes, I do love the Judds. Saturday morning chores were actually fun. Sort of. OK, not really. But I still love the Judds.
Ok, my loyal readers-How do you two make cleaning fun?
