Surprised by the Mundane
Okay, okay, so we all do dishes. I know. And to those of you who have raised your kids up to adult size, this comes as no shock. It is, in fact, barely worth note. Please indulge me.
A mere six years ago, I was single and childless, and I would not have used this many dishes in a week (and even if I had, I certainly would not have washed them in a timely manner). In the intervening years, I have been so busy gestating, birthing, nursing, loving, cuddling, and rearing my children, (not to mention all my wifely and housewifely duties) that I have not looked up to notice -- WE ARE A FAMILY OF FIVE!!
How did I miss that?
Note to self: Look up more often, before you're back to washing dishes just for two.
