9:00 am: Holly is on the computer in the kitchen. Her husband  looks over her shoulder. The younger boys are playing at the kitchen table with Legos next to the oldest who is working on schoolwork. Ahhhh…nirvana. 9:01 am: Holly’s husband  leaves the room. 9:02 am: The three boys have requests for mommy. #1 wants help with his work. #2 would like another glass of milk. #3 begs to go to the potty (despite not being potty trained in ANY sense of the word). 9:04 am: Mommy fulfills all three requests. Mommy answers school question about math. Mommy obtains a full glass of milk from the fridge. Mommy sets baby on toilet. Good job Mommy! 9:05 am: Uh-oh! #1 needs help. Math emergency. #2 spills milk. Milk emergency. #3 pees on mommy. Plain old emergency. 9:06 am: #2 walks to bathroom to make sure mommy hears his screams about the milk. Legend: lime green: milk footprints orange: milk + pee footprints 9:07 am: Mommy strips boys #2 and #3 and starts a load of urine and milk soaked clothes. Mommy washes her legs and feet. Boy #1 continues to scream for help. 9:09 am: Mommy uses 3 washcloths, a spray cleaner and 15 minutes to mop up the pee pool, the milk pool and the tributaries that connect the two. New clothes are placed on boys #2 and #3. 9:24 am: Mommy sits back at computer. #1 has figured out his math problem on his own. #2 and #3 sit with new clothes at table playing with Legos. Ahhh…nirvana. 9:25 am:  Holly’s husband walks into room and inquires whether Holly is going to spend the whole day blogging. This Holly’s Animated Life episode originally aired on April 9, 2008 and was the second adventure Holly animated.   It has been digitally re-mastered and edited to NOT include Holly’s kitchen counter, photo of her finger and real life breakfast food stains.

  1. I LOVE the picture of the clothes being thrown into the dryer! Very funny!

    Oh, and Blog Stedman’s line at the end is classic!

  2. I LOVE this one! I read it to my kids we laughed!

    A milk puddle and a pee puddle at the same time! 😉

    Sometimes I wonder if they wait until Daddy leaves! Then another part of me wonders if hubbies pay the kids to do this! I mean really… could it really all happen like this – just when they leave. hehehehe

  3. That is SO the story of my life! And then for some darn reason I feel guilty for every second of blogging.

  4. Hah! Brilliant!!! My morning: kids wake me up @ 6:30, make breakfast and coffee, get dressed, do three loads of laundry and make a grocery list. Hubby wakes up and I am checking Facebook. He asks if I’ve been on FB all morning! Of course I have…because the kids will let me sit around on the computer all day, YEAH RIGHT!
