A Little Mess

Herr Husband is finally home and I want to laze about on my couch and eat Indian food. I’m also in the midst of a battle over the hall light with Das Big Boy. I told him if he got out of bed again, it was going off for the night. He did. And it did. And now we’re enjoying a symphony of whining. So I don’t really want to blog.

But I will share the before and after photos of my car.

Before. What shall be referred to as the chimpanzee era.

The chimps moved out, but they left a mess (this is the cleaning I accomplished myself).

After the pros cleaned it out.

The pros were Gray Brothers Auto Detailing in Newton. For $23, they vacuumed the car, cleaned the interior surfaces, and washed the interior windows. Money well spent! Preschool drop-off shame be gone!

Oh, except for the part where I dropped and broke a glass bottle of milk right outside the preschool playground while I was supposed to be watching a friend’s son (in addition to my own kids) before school. Add that to the fact that Little Liebchen was sporting a forehead band-aid (Dowl ban-ay (aka, Doll band aid, by which she means Frozen) from an earlier tumble on pavement, and I’m quite sure the mom was wondering why she had entrusted her child to me, and in fact why the universe had entrusted me with my own kids. It was one of those moments where I was feeling like a bad-ass  who could manage everything and do favors for people and then was reminded that I’m not always so awesome at handling my life.

So preschool drop-off shame, don’t go too far…

To be honest, I’m not actually ashamed. I made these two, and I’m doing ok enough at the rest of it:

Awwwww...

Awwwww…
