No Longer a Stay-at-Home Mom

I've been a stay-at-home Mom since right about the time I found out we were going to have Abbie. And while I've never been one to really stay at home that much, I've enjoyed it.

But now that I'm subbing quite a bit, I'm hardly ever here. Today is my self-proclaimed "day off" and guess what I'm doing??

Cleaning the upstairs....

I'll come back and update you in a while, but here's what I've found so far:

  • Kait's James Avery Bee charm -- no necklace in sight. Yet.
  • Two shriveled pumpkins from Halloween.
  • A pair of pajamas Abbie got for birthday, still in the gift bag. (And she's complained every night this week that she doesn't have any clean pajamas!)
  • About 15,000 homemade "passports" for American Girl Dolls, Webkinz, etc. Where do they think we're going????
  • My stapler.
  • The chain from Kait's necklace, tied in a knot -- makes me think I'm the only one who has been missing it!
  • About a bajillion dirty socks. (Abbie's also been short on clean socks in the mornings.)
  • Enough books to run a Scholastic resale location.

And the number-one, oh-my-goodness thing?

A peed-in toilet that hadn't been flushed in a few days. YIKES!!!
