Do you ever start your day with so much energy, the best of intentions, and plans to get your house looking perfect. That’s how my day started. My house was going to sparkle when I was through with it. Every room was going to be organized, cleaned, sorted. Clothes were going to be gone through…Winter clothes put away, summer clothes here to say.
Then I remembered…I have kids.
Funny how I forgot that kids don’t let you clean…they go behind you and mess it up! Right now, as we speak Ben is climbing all over my freshly made bed. Soon to be jumping on it I’m sure. Am I going to kick him off…probably not. He’s content and I’m getting a few second to actually write my thoughts here.
Ben…I love him, but he is THE MESSIEST KID in the world. Somehow I failed to teach him that when you take something out to play, put it back when your done. Though, he does it at school…even if I tell him to. I think he’s too comfy in this little home of ours. As I look around right now I can see a Singing bear, Thomas trains, Books….but when I peer into his bedroom the one thing I can’t see is his floor…again.
So now I’m on day two of THE BIG CLEAN. Laundry is going, Baby is sleeping and I am typing…NOT cleaning.
I guess I just talked myself into getting back to work!
