Thursday, I ran upstairs to change my clothes, brush my teeth, and wash my face before dropping Owen off at afternoon preschool.  Literally, 7 minutes.  Tops.  I had been having what Owen calls a "Lazy Morning."  You know, washed, folded, and put away 3 loads of laundry, vacuumed and dusted all 3 levels of our townhouse, cleaned 2 bathrooms, supervised the boys fingerprinting, got them all dressed and ready for school, and made and cleaned up lunch.  Lazy, by Owen's definition, because I did all of this in my pj's.  While I was getting ready, Ben found a black
Sharpie and decided to draw a masterpiece on the linoleum.  Thanks to Mike's mad googling skills and magic eraser, it cleaned right up!  
Then, on Friday, I got a call to teach Lamaze class in the evening.  I was all ready to go, but just had to throw on my clothes  - I have learned to always wait to do this until IMMEDIATELY before I walk out the door.  Again, probably 5-6 min to throw on my clothes, fresh deodorant, and brush my teeth/ hair (FYI- I had showered on Friday morning!)  I came down to find this lovely mess.  Of course, "Look what Benny did."  was what I was greeted with as I came down the stairs.  I was so tired, but I have to say it gave me a whole new perspective on leaving the house!  Thanks to Mike for dealing with this one!  I honestly don't think I could have handled the smell.  I hope the rest of the weekend will go a little better...

Having a dog around is pretty helpful in these situations! I bet things are busy at your house, but if you got one that was already potty trained, it could help you out!
