38 weeks pregnant - new definitions of Mommyhood

At 38 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child (who will probably be over 9 lbs like his siblings and who recently dropped on top of my bladder and "pelvic region" with great gusto), I have redefined some Mommyhood terminology.

"The house is clean" = there is a clear and safe path for walking through rooms.

"Dinner is made" = there is PB&J and/or bread and cheese in the house.

"The kids are clean" = they sat in soapy water for 10 minutes and splashed all over the bathroom.

"The laundry is done" = we all have something to wear. For today.

"The kitchen is clean" = we all have a plate, cup, and fork to use. For today.

"The kids did something educational today" = they learned 3 new Spanish words from Dora the Explorer.
