A day in the Life

I did this before- but this week is a better example. THis is my attempt to TRY and SHOW a day in the life of a Mommy. There will always be the ongoing debate between a working hubby and a Stay at Home Mommy, (unless you have that rare breed) who works harder. People without kids DO NOT GET IT. This is the hardest job I have ever had. I don't get to commute- or clock in and out- my job never ends!!!!! So, here is my second attempt at showing a day in the life.
