I love this email that landed in my Inbox. If you are a mum does this story sound familiar to you?
Although I must admit I’m nowhere near as organised as this Mum… if I was, I would probably not be in such a bleeming big mad rush every morning before going to school, shouting at my boy Noah when he still hasn’t put his shoes and coat on after I’ve told him for the tenth time, loosing my mind because either baby Felicity or toddler Josh just filled their nappies again conveniently just before we are leaving the house or swearing because we have to rush back because I forgot to prepare the dinner money and it’s Fish & Chips day (the only day I buy Noah the school dinner) and I can’t find my purse anywhere! Scream!!!
Anyway this story is called ‘WHY WOMEN ARE SO SPECIAL’
Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, “I’m tired, and it’s getting late. I think I’ll go to bed.” She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day’s lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phoneback on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket andhung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note tothe teacher, counted out some cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her bag.
Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution & Age Fighting Moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails. Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.”
“I’m on my way,” she said. She put some water into the dog’s dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and radios, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals. About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. “I’m going to bed.” And he did…without another thought.
