There is no such thing as a sick day when you are a mom. I have a lovely cold/flu type illness so I took the day off work.
The puppy managed to destroy a dog toy leaving cotton all over to be cleaned up and he peed in the house. Then when I went to get Chase at school we spent 15+ minutes looking for the shirt and shoes and socks he lost (why did he have them off in the first place?!) ...and then when we got home we had to take a bath to scrub off all the red marker he colored himself with.
When you are thinking of becoming a parent some how the books and other moms forget to tell you that there will be days like this...
Ps. During a motherly rant I asked Chase "How many times have I told you to leave your clothes on or at least put them in your cubby?!?!" - his answer "ummm like a million...no wait more like infinity times." Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!
