Chasing My Tail.

Do you ever just have those days where the more you do, the more you have to do?

I feel like all I have done today is go in circles. I have vacuumed twice, the first because it was time to do the floors, the second because after I vacuumed, the Munchkin thought it would be best if she crumbled her Goldfish before eating them.

Not that this comes as a big surprise, but everything you do with a Toddler takes. so. much. longer.

Examples:

Vacuuming floor - See Above

Folding laundry -- she unfolds while I fold and re-fold and so on.

Errands - This is a given with the whole in and out of the car seat thing.

Grocery shopping - Tantrums in the toilet paper aisle lead to doubling back for the free cookie.

*Note to self, this could be avoided by going to cookie counter FIRST.


Unloading groceries - Munchkin thinks it's funny to shut the door behind me every single time I go out for more bags. Resulting in me having to set groceries down to open the door.

Putting groceries away - This is a double whammy. She closes the refrigerator doors each time I put something away -- this has us battling for the door. Open, close, open, close.. WHAM! She gets smacked in the head when my strength wins out, leading to 5 minutes of doting and kissing before being able to put away said groceries.

And, last but not least... My favorite.

Hide the tuna -
This is where I have to go searching the house to find out what she has done with the packs of tuna I thought I put away -- The hiding place du jour was with "Uncle Ben" in my bedroom closet.

Ahhhhhh, nap time. Maybe now I can actually get something done!

Tuna doesn't go in the closet?

Think you get nothing done now? Just start potty training and watch the house go down the drain -even if nothing else does!

I had to read your post 2 times, because I was interrupted by someone wanting up - no down - no up.
