What happened since the last episode?

Before I even begin, did I say that I love Orchids? Anyhow, Potty training is going okay. After telling a friend that Noahkeem poops in the potty, He decided to poop in his pants 3 times today. All three of course, I had to be responsible for cleaning up. Word of advice, never brag about potty training until you are 100 percent out of Pull ups.
Isn't it astounding how much physical labor you still invest after you've been in labor? Up and down stairs, chasing, playing, hand washing dishes, (if you aren't so blessed to have a dishwasher) moping, vacuuming, dusting, praying, taking stuff down, putting stuff up, changing sheets, changing diapers, bathing, dressing and dressing yourself if you're with it enough to do it before 2 in the afternoon, grocery shopping, need I say more? Oh- I should. Homeschooling, Bill paying, and finding the time to stimulate your own brain before it turns to mush. It's endless. Do we want sympathy? Some do. Do we want a helping hand? Some are blessed to have it. The good in all of this is that I lost all of my baby weight and still burn 500 calories a day by nursing. So ladies if you don't feel like laboring- don't labor. You deserve the day off.
