The Joys Of Motherhood
Today started off as a good day. Grace woke earlier than usual but despite this, was content to play and keep herself busy while I had a shower, checked the email, made breakfast, put on a load of washing and even did a spot of vacuuming. We took a drive to visit my Nanna at her retirement home where we enjoyed a cuppa and some biscuits and on the way home, Grace even nodded off in the car (very rare for her but I think she was catching up on sleep after skipping her nap yesterday and having woken in the middle of the night).
Anyway, when we got home, Grace was busy playing with her toy kitchen in her bedroom so I decided to use the time to get a few chores done and then, seeing as she was still singing away happily, I ironed all the fabrics for Grace’s quilt ready for cutting and sewing this week. I should have learnt that a quiet Grace means she is up to no good.
When I went to check on her, she had whipped off her soiled nappy (so much for our great run of toilet training) and I then spent the next hour cleaning, scrubbing and washing. So, I figure with dinner already sorted, my housework tasks for today done, as well as the extra cleaning I’ve had to do, I’m entitled to sit at this computer with a cuppa or two while Little Miss Naughty is napping.
I’m off to boil the kettle again…
