    In regards to that penultimate question, does ANYONE sleep in your child’s bed? I have to say no, at least not most of the time…

    We have a rule – school lunch once a week, she picks the day. She usually picks chicken nugget day.

    The only one I can answer is that, yes, I am slowly going insane 😉

    I started a response to the “indoor cat”, then it got kinda long, so I posted it to my own blog:

    How many times can you get your family to eat the same leftovers? Or do they never eat them?
    2 times if I am lucky!

    Do you get enough vegetables into your husband kids and if yes how? If not do you feel guilty about it?
    Yes, my boy loves veggies, esp. cooked broccoli, green beans, cucumbers, peas, and carrots. Husband loves salad…favorite dinner.

    If you work at home how do you keep motivated midday when no one would ever know if you took a nap on the couch/watched tv/ate bon bons?
    My emails are non-stop so I often look up and think – it is 2pm…should get some lunch. Then, I have bon bons for lunch!

    How do you keep your kid’s toys from burying you alive?
    We don’t have that many…but we did buy a bigger house, so that helps! hee hee

    Ditto the mail and the laundry?
    Open the mail and sort it before it hits a hard surface. Envelopes and junk mail straight to the recycle bin, husband’s mail on his desk, coupons in a pile to go into the car, and there is rarely anything left!
    Laundry chute… never see the stuff!

    Do you let your children watch tv in the morning before school?
    Always! 1 hour of TV.

    Do you do anything special with your kids during your spouse’s business trips? Special meals, change up the schedule, anything? Go into survival mode and hope for the best?
    We’d go to Chik-Fil-A…but it has been a while since I had to care for him alone.

    Do you pack a lunch for your kids everyday or do they eat school lunch?
    Pack a lunch and 2 snacks for daycare.

    How do you retrain a cat to indoor only after being outdoors in the daytime for years?
    Duct tape?

    How do you retrain one to poo in his litter box instead of on the floor next to the box, even when the box is brand new? (The cat, not the kid…)
    Again, Duct tape?

    Does your cat/dog/hamster sleep in your child’s bed?
    Nope…dog sleeps next to ours.

    Are you slowly or quickly going insane?
    Slowly… it is more fun!

    How many times can you get your family to eat the same leftovers? Or do they never eat them?
    Unfortunately, usually once. Maaaaaaybbee twice if I can change it’s appearance or do something extra to it.

    Do you get enough vegetables into your husband kids and if yes how? If not do you feel guilty about it?
    I try to have some veggies in at least every lunch and dinner meal I make. I think it all evens out in the end…they at least get SOME, which is better than none. Also, I remember not caring for veggies when younger and then for some reason in the years of puberty, I suddenly LOVED them. I don’t know if that’s helpful..

    If you work at home how do you keep motivated midday when no one would ever know if you took a nap on the couch/watched tv/ate bon bons?
    I don’t work from home, or at all really, but in terms of studying or whatnot…if I didn’t get it done during the allotted time I set out for it, I would make sure to punish myself by working on my school stuff at night, when I’d much rather not. Well, in all honesty, if it didn’t get done during the day then it would HAVE to be before I got to bed, or everything would pile up and I would be behind. Sooooo…that was sort of motivational to get my butt to do the stuff.

    How do you keep your kid’s toys from burying you alive?
    Bins, giant storage bins. Ones that he doesn’t play with anymore go into bins and are stored in the garage.

    Ditto the mail and the laundry?
    We do the same thing mentioned above by beaglemum for mail. And laundry…I have no answers, just…just prayers.

    Does your cat/dog/hamster sleep in your child’s bed? I really, really, REALLY want to have a cat and if we ever get one, I would not mind him/her sleeping in Aiman’s bed, but would be a little jealous that he or she isn’t sleeping in mine.

    Are you slowly or quickly going insane? Slowly, painfully, and tortuously going insane.
