I am astounded by the swathes of paper used in educating my son! It’s a good thing we have a wood (and paper) burning fireplace or my children might be traumatized by where their school work and daycare art ends up!
I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.
