Secrets of a Stay-at-home-mom

NO adoption news, I still need to fill out the I-600 (the paper requesting out $800 fingerprints, geez!), but I was blissfully busy washing, folding, and putting away laundry since I stayed home for more than an hour at a time during daylight hours that I just didn't want to do paperwork.

So instead of adoption news, I wanted to have a transparent post on secrets of a SAHM. I know a lot of you will be able to relate, the question will be, are you willing to come out of the closet and admit your "SAHM secret"?

Here's a couple of mine......

*sometimes, I vacuum around the mess (including the pile of clothes me DH leaves by his side of the bed).....I know your hubby is perfect, he never does that ;0)

*now that I don't have crawling babies, or little people that spill stuff all over the kitchen floor....I mop a whole lot less.....still sweep or vacuum the kitchen...but mop a whole lot less (gasp!)

*I never dust sometimes.........

*after several long days of school at the kitchen table, we just shove the school stuff over to eat dinner eat on the picnic table outside

So, what is your SAHM secret? Come on! I know you have at least one!!!!

I don't fold towels or sheets- I wash them and they go right back on the beds or hanging in the bathroom. It may not sound like much, but laundry is my least favorite chore, so anything I can do to make it easier helps me!

haha love it! lets see...i have many! Sometimes when I clean one room up I make another messy because I put all the stuff the cleaned room into that room! I also don't like laundry so we are REALLY bad about folding towels, clothes and instead living out of the baskets! YIKES i sound bad! :0)
