I Don't Have A Job...

 We stayed around here today, which is always nice cause I can try to get some stuff done. The girls played hide and seek, and rearranged the furniture in their 2 doll houses time after time after time.

This picture makes my heart smile...


I think they peeked through that little door at Raya till her belly hurt from laughing.

I was in major productive mode, especially with the laundry, I kinda have a new system that seems to be working pretty well. But the door bell rang and there stood the neighbors - which is fine, it just brought my streak to some what of a stop.

I'd much rather have all them here though - I'm not huge on the girls going else where - I'm real over-protective that way.

You could also call it controlling.

Ahem.

I want the neighbors to feel welcome here anyway, the more the merrier I guess :).

The little girl is in Ella's class at school, and she is a hoot. She always comes into the kitchen if I'm cooking or cleaning and talks like she really knows me, she usually makes me laugh with her unfiltered chatter. Today she said...

"We can come here anytime and play because you're always home...since you don't have a job!"

Haha, oh child, you're right - I don't have a job, I have almost 6 jobs.

They're all full time, with no vacation or paid time off - heck in this office, you can't even pee by yourself!

But the benefits of this "job", are amazing. :)

When I first saw this post on my page I was all offended for you and was like "you 5 1/2 jobs right now "... but I guess since a child said it I can forgive her :) I love it when my husband says "since your off today" umm...excuse me... Im never off, not even when I am not at work... :)
Your a great momma! And so productive! Love the doll house pic! and wanted you to know I will also be over protective. I've already said they will NOT be able to spend the night with anyone but grandparents.

that is so funny! I love the things kids say!

Being a mom IS a fulltime job and you are right, you have almost 6 fulltime jobs!

Jeni said...

HA!! I can relate...I'm controlling like that too.....I mean over-protective even if it means lots of extra kids.

Just call in involved :).

I have to say that, though I do not want a total of 6 kids, I am envious of you being able to stay home and take care of them. I have been workign since my son was almost a year old and as of now, there is no end in sight.
