No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Ok this morning I am feeling seriously grumpy...why you ask? Oh you bet I am going to tell you. First of all Bugaboo thought that it would be totally awesome if he woke up at the crack of dawn, yeah kid that was AWESOME. Then I had to spend my morning cleaning up the mess from the dinner that I made last night just before I ran out the door to go to work. GRRRR!

Do any of you moms out there feel like Sisyphus the Greek who was condemned by the Gods to continually roll a great boulder to the top of a hill only to watch it roll back down again? Only instead of a boulder its a big ol' pile of laundry, and unlike Sisyphus you don't get to roll it up the hill in peace you have to do it with a toddler attached to one leg.

Um, yes. My resounding answer would be yes. Your analogy is just about perfect as a matter of fact.

Great analogy...but just wait until child number 2 rolls along; that's when life gets interesting. You not only have a child clinging to each leg, but your laundry quadruples in size!!! It's great. :)

Yes. That's exactly how it feels. I'm so using that analogy from now on!
