Weekends as a parent - so true!

Saw this on facebook this weekend and hard to laugh! Just so I remember how life is with two small boys, here is a quick run down of Saturday and Sunday in the Palmer Moran house of fun :-) I really appreciated having lovely mr.ncot back after a week away. We are both completely knackered and the weekend has been a bit of a give and take for childcare...
