So… what did you DO all day?

I must admit, my husband is merciful and tactful, and I don’t remember that exact question ever coming out of his mouth.  But, sometimes, I can tell by his quick glance with widened eyes around the place when he comes home that he’s sometimes thinking it.

I laughed out loud at this post from Anonymom, which starts

This is for all the stay-at-home-mothers who are exhausted at the end of the day only to be greeted by the words, “What did you do all day long?”

She then goes on to detail the day in Husband Perceived Time (the time hubbies think a task should take) vs. Actual Time.

Anonymom has a baby and a preschooler, so my life as a homeschooling mom of four isn’t identical to hers, but it does bear some striking similarities. 


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. When they were little, it was impossible to conquer the clutter. Now that they are older, I have learned to embrace the utter filth! 🙂

  2. That was great, Karen!! Thanks for sharing that. 🙂

  3. Hi, thanks for linking to me! Glad I provided lots of laughter in another mom’s 18 minutes of blogging!
