non-working mother

These last couple of days I have been reading my family members' blogs, and have started to feel like I am not doing my part, unless I have my own blogspot. I don't proclaim to be a good writer, so even though this won't be the best/funniest/most entertaining literature you have read, I hope it will still be interesting enough for you to want to read about our lives.
So there are 2 things I have to explain. First the name. We are currently in the process of buying a home. Every time I call a mortgage company to get a quote, they want all my personal information. That is fine and dandy, until they get to the question: "Where do you work".... well, that's a tough question to answer. I guess I could say that I work everywhere, everyday, in every profession. But usually I just say: "I don't work". Now as all of you stay-at-home mothers know, there is nothing further from the truth. Sure there are times I get to have a little nap, but only after spending 2 hours in the store listening to my kids asking for candy, chasing them down the isle, and bribing them with candy if they can only be good for a couple more minutes.
The other thing I want to explain is this wonderful pokadot background on this blog. Two of my sister-in-laws have this same template, and it's just so cute. I thought that maybe if I used the same one as them, my blog would also be as interesting and funny to read as theirs.... (even though I know this will never be true)
Well it seems as my free time has ended, as my sons just asked me 5 times in a row to sharpen his pencil... I guess I am also a professional pencil sharpener.
