Yo-yo Mamma

Ever get those times as a parent when you feel you're just on a piece of elastic pinging between school, work and home and children's venues?

Today's that day.

Leave the house - boing - arrive at school - boing - drop Sam at Mum's - boing - arrive at work - boing - pick Sam up from nursery - boing - pick older two up from school - boing - back home - boing - pick Eleanor up from school trip - boing - back home - boing - take Maddie to Brownies - boing - back home - boing - collect Maddie from Brownies - boing - back home.

Boing, boing, boing, boing, boing.....

Heehee - what a great title for your post! Over here in the US, I often see cars/vans with bumper stickers that say "Mom's Taxi". I'm sure that a lot of moms feel like chauffeurs most of the time. And Happy Friday to you!
