I am so not a stay at home mom!!!!

Ok let me clarify I am a stay away from home mom. I have now been home 3 days with Landry and only have like another week to go. EEEKKKKK!!!!! I got all these things to keep him busy but what about mommy. I don't do stay at home. I don't do a lot of down time either. If we are at home we are usually busy. Not so much lately. Landry has either been sleeping, laying in bed, or whining, a few games have been played, Chinese checkers and apples to apples. He did get out of his cave to join in with Luke's sight word bingo earlier but now he is back in bed. Luke wants to be in there with him so here I am trying to figure out what to do. Laundry, dishes things like that but seriously. There is a reason my child is hyperactive .. its called genetics... If I'm not careful I might actually start a project, then Landry has this really annoying horn he blows when he needs something. Just about the time I would get started it would go off. What is a mommy to do..

It doesn't sound like hyperactive to me. It sounds like someone who has a lot of creative energy (like me!) and boring housework is not an outlet for such energy.

(BTW, I found that caffeine really exaggerated the feelings of having to constantly do something for me. I could not sit down and just be. I love my coffee though, but I had to switch to half caf and decaf coke. Just thought I'd throw that out there)

I say start the project. Don't like the possibility of a blowing horn stop you.

Or read a book. That's another one of my favorite things when I'm home with sick kids.
