What do you do all day?

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?""Yes," was his incredulous reply.She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it.".

I received this in one of those silly emails everyone feels the need to forward. Except this one, I actually took a few minutes to read and thought I would post it here. I think its cute.

As for us, we are doing ok. Today was a typical day for Blake and I. We did a little grocery shopping and alot of looking. Then we purchased a new battery for my car because I want to get it fix to drive again. Yay, cant wait for that. Its nice to be able to go where you want to when you want. But when we actually get my car fixed and drivable again, I will have to buy Blakers another car seat. Now that were on the subject of Blake, he is starting to take a few steps on his own now before he gives up and puts his hands down, falls down on them and starts to crawl again. I guess he is still a bit unsure of this walking thing. Its really cute though, and I love to watch him crawl on his hands and feet. I want to scrap it so badly, but I cant get a decent shot of it. He always stops when he sees I have the camera in hand, and gives me a huge smile.
