I put Rose down for a nap about an hour ago. I have dishes prepped to start in the washer, and clothes ready to be washed as well. I need to vacuum, pick up the living room, clean the kitchen, and the bathroom. However one thought is in my head…
The end is nigh…
I know that as soon as I start any of these tasks my little girl is going to wake up and want to play and eat.
Well, why haven’t you been cleaning the whole time she has been asleep?
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
Shaving, eating, watching The Today Show, (cough cough) blogging. Things of important coming to my attention means I have to prioritize my chores. I will get these things done. I just may not get them done by the time she wakes up.
If Rose would nap for three hours at a time I would have plenty of time to get things done. I think with teaching her letters, numbers, colors, to walk, all of the Presidents in order as well as the Roman Emperors in order, to speak, character names from Star Wars, I should also teach her how to take a three hour nap.(Jack Daniels)
It would make things a lot simpler around here. Though she has been enjoying helping me do my chores. So really I am not a lazy husband for putting these things off, but rather I am a great father for teaching my little girl the value of hard work.
That will be today’s excuse. I will let ya know how that goes when Mommy Boots comes home from work.
