Rate Limiting Factor

Yesterday, Grandma YaYa came over and visited with the kids allowing Hubby and I to go do a task we have been wanting to get to, but have found very difficult with 2 little ones. Cleaning the garage. A messy garage is just not where you want to have them play. Also, it was really a task that the two of us needed to work on together, so leaving one of us to watch the kids just didn't help all that much.

Let me just say, it is AMAZING what you can get done when you are not having to simutaneously supervise children. Just one hour in the garage and we got so much done! What a rate limiting factor kids can be to project completion. I seriously think it would have taken most of the day to do what we did had we had to watch the kids as well. Is it pitiful that I am excited about having had the opportunity to clean my garage?

OH, YES! This is my life exactly. I have 2 babies under 2 years old and I'm separated from my husband. EVERYTHING I do takes forever. I just had a birthday party for my one year old today and I cooked and cleaned for 3 days straight. I thought I was the only one in this time warp. All the people I know are like "what do you mean it took you 2 hours to clean one bathroom ??
