You know you are the mother of three when...
You find yourself strangely excited by the prospect of cleaning, yes I said cleaning and I'm not even the OCD type, the house for an entire afternoon because your husband has planned to take the children to grandma's.
Yes, I have been looking forward to this afternoon for a day and a half.
What is wrong with me? "Nothing", say you moms-in-the-know because what you know is that this arrangement will mean no interruptions for, well, hours. Can that be?
So, yes, I am looking forward to tacking some organizational projects, and even quite a bit of cleaning, and feeling that sense of victory of seeing a project through from beginning to end in one sitting.
Plus, I know where all of the chocolate is hidden.
