You Go, Girl!

I saw this on my friend Courtney's page and just had to share it. I think all of us Mommies can appreciate it...


***

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 all over 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 house, he found an even bigger mess.

A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded up 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 that she may be ill or that something serious had happened to her.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made it's way out of 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 did I do today?"

"Yes", was his incredulous reply.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it."
