To all who think being a mom is easy....

  1. [font=Comic Sans MS]A man came home from work and found his three
    [font=Comic Sans MS]children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front
    [font=Comic Sans MS]door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]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.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food
    [font=Comic Sans MS]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.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and
    [font=Comic Sans MS]more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its
    [font=Comic Sans MS]way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside
    [font=Comic Sans MS]he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a
    [font=Comic Sans MS]heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his
    [font=Comic Sans MS]day went.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"
    [font=Comic Sans MS]She again smiled and answered, "You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in
    [font=Comic Sans MS]the world did I do today?"
    [font=Comic Sans MS]"Yes," was his incredulous reply.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]
    [font=Comic Sans MS]She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."

    I'M just a little housewife,
    with dishes three times a day.

    With laundry,cleaning,and cooking,

    and toys to put away.

    Now, it's not that I mind

    the housework,

    or the screaming kids at play.

    It's that husband that burns me,

    when he says with a smile,

    "!Did you do anythingtoday??!!!"
