Men Ask: “What do Women do all Day?” — Now They’ll Know!

I'm sure it's in here somewhere......

My oldest daughter, who is a stay-at-home mom with 3 children ages 22 months, 6 and 8 years, forwarded this hilarious story to me. I had to share it with all of the Richmondmom.com readers out there — whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or not, you can relate to this one!

After all, what do women do anyway? Right?

Enjoy!

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a Cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, “What happened here today?”

She again smiled and answered, “You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?”

“Yes” was his incredulous reply.

She answered, “Well, today I didn’t do it.”

    laughing so hard!
    makes me remember when (ex) came home from a business trip, our home had fresh laundry, fresh groceries, the table was set for the dinner that was nearly ready, and our 4 FOUR children had done their homework, I was FEELIN' REALLY GOOD about his arrival,
    he put his briefcase down, started making himself a drink and asked,
    "Why haven't you been watering my plants?"
    my response: "Because I've been feedin' your kids!"
    what I was thinking I'm sure I'm not supposed to say online!
