The Joys Of Being A WAHM

This is one of those days that is a bit frustrating, but so funny I can't get mad. All of it just reinforces the reasons that I chose this route for my life.

I'm sitting here at the computer, working on a couple of queries before starting on articles I have for a client. My one year old has decided that the computer is his, too, and keeps trying to help me.

However, the only key he can reach from where he stands is the "3" on the keypad. So every few words, I find myself deleting a few randomly placed 3's. Annoying, but no big deal, just have to proofread before I send.

That got old, so he decides its time for a snack. Gave him a couple of crackers, keeping him distracted for a whopping 5 minutes. I guess he got full, because now he's breaking off pieces and "sharing" them with the printer. He "feeds" one to the paper tray and says "mmmmmm". Fun stuff. Thankfully it's a front loader, so he can't get the crumbs too far in. Again, annoying, but no big deal, just have to get the air canister and blow them out later.

Now, he's noticed the pretty orange light on the surge protector. Now that is where mommy draws the line. Gotta relocate the big couch cushions over the front of the computer desk to cover the distraction.

Now somebody explain to me why my husband thinks I have the "easy" job around here?! Easy, I think not, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!

LOL! Your one year old sounds like mine... love the surge brotector button... only he tells me when I am done working cause he violently shoves the sliding keyboard drawer in and gives me a dirty look when mommmy spends a little too much time writing and not playing!
