What did I do today?

I found this on someone's blog and it made me smile. It reminded me of how Jared asks me everyday, "What did you do today?" My reply is almost always, "Hmmmm, I don't really remember." I have a lot of years like this ahead of me. I'm only 7 months into it! I'm really just posting this to validate my days filled with not cleaning, not doing dishes, forgetting to do the laundry, and procrastinating work & church stuff!

Today I left some dishes dirty,
The bed got made around 3:30.
The diapers soaked a little longer,
The odor grew a little stronger.

The crumbs I spilled the day before
Are staring at me fr
om the floor.
The fingerprints there on the wall
Will likely be there still next fall.
The dirty streaks on those windowpanes
Will still be there next time it rains.
Shame on you, you sit and say,
Just what did you do today?

I held a baby till sh
e slept,
I held a toddler while she wept.
I played a game of hide and seek,
I squeezed a toy so it would squeak.
I pulled a wagon, sang a song,
Taught a child right from wrong.
What did I do this whole day through?
Not much that shows, I guess that's true.
Unless you think that what I've done,
Might be important to someone
With deep blue eyes and soft blonde hair
,
If that is true...I've done my share.
