In case you wonder how I do it all….

7 Nov

Really, it’s not that hard…

imageSchool room–masterfully, organized–check!

imageKitchen area–spotless–check! (Does it count that I have my cleaning supplies OUT in preparation clean sometime-in-the-not-too-distant-future (maybe Saturday??)


Entry Hall–toys put away by son #3 and dirty clothes put away by son #2–check! Wow, I am on a roll!

I would show you a picture of my bedroom, but I don’t want to shame you. It is completely spotless, dusted, all laundry put away, bed made. You get the picture. 🙂

HAHAHAHAHA! I try to remind you often that I don’t have it all together or all figured out. I have been laughing out loud this afternoon as I walk around my house and just HAD to share it with you. 🙂 🙂  It’s days like these when I can tell we’ve had a good school day. Nothing is ever where it is supposed to be. I will work on it tonight, and it will be ok (but probably still not perfectly so-so as I’d like). It seems like I woke up this morning with an 8, 6, and almost 4 year old after putting to bed 3 tiny infants. Their lives are zooming forward at the speed of light. If that means my house is messy so that I can savor one day with my 8, 6, and almost 4 year old, I am okay with that. 🙂

So, this afternoon (and tonight AND the next day…AND the day after that) give yourself some grace; no one has it all together. Savor moments with your family and kiddos, and relax. 🙂 AND…if you’re husband comes home and he’s upset that your house isn’t spotless, just show him my pictures, and he will feel lots better about your day’s efforts. 🙂 Oooh, gotta go…smelling something burning on my stove. Burned chili for dinner-awesome.

    Haha! I love it! This was a good reminder, I am often tempted to believe that others have a much better grip on things that I do. 🙂

      girl, I’m the SAME way! I’ve realized part of the reason we feel that is because we only see “snapshots” of people’s lives online…on a blog, FB, instagram. Obviously, we’re usually only putting forth our BEST in those snapshots, so I like to throw in a few REALITY posts once in a while. It’s my reminder to give myself grace…and I’m sure other women need that reminder, too, right?!?!? Thanks for commenting and reading. 🙂
