Getting Back to Normal

Today we are getting back to normal. The holidays are over, the decorations down (although I will probably continue to find ones I missed for months), and Alex is back to work.

This morning I set the timer and challenged the girls to see if we could clean the living room before the buzzer went off. I love that at this age, they are so eager to help me because I know that one day it will take more than a timer to get help. But until then, I have a couple more rooms to get cleaned!


  1. Isn't it tough adjusting to the men being gone again for 12 hours??? Ellie sat at the door and cried for ten minutes this morning! But before long routines will be back as before!

  2. Don't worry...the buzzer still works most of the time!!! :-)
