Working Mom's "Quality Time" Breakdown

The numbers don't lie -- quality time with my kid is scarce.

Momlogic's Momstrosity: Every day when I get out of work, I tear out of the parking garage to be reunited with my toddler. I think about her all day long and can't wait to spend some one-on-one time with her. And every day I envision (in between making dinner) she and I will while away the hours from 6 PM to bedtime -- drawing, playing dress up, playing restaurant, dancing, singing, baking, riding bikes and doing various messy crafts.

I don't know what happens, but each night it never, ever works out as planned. Is it just me?

Here's the breakdown:

Hahaha! Too funny. Now I don’t feel so bad about my parenting…only I’d drink more vino, too!

This makes me sad. Do you spend any time being thankful?

You and me both, sister!

LOL. I thought I was the only one who obsessively checked their email and googled old boyfriends!!

Can’t guzzling wine piggy back on some of the other slices (like googling the ex & enforcing time outs)?

am just trying to figure out how in the world you have time to obsessively check email when you have a toddler?
Was also kinda wonderin’ where making dinner goes?
However, the rest kinda fits with me… wine, cheese, clutter, spills etc.

Events in the past may be roughly divided into those which probably never happened and those which do not matter.

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.

I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Looking around the web, I ran across your webblog. I am researching for several ideas for a design for my own site. I like your theme, did you create or alter this layout? I have a site also and my theme seems to be kinda sorry as a result visitors don’t hang about on my internet site very long.
