Honest Pictures: Exhibit A Monday
I am not perfect! I will be the first person to tell you that I am not a good house keeper. I hate cleaning, but I like having a clean house. This problem didn’t seem to matter before kids. Once we threw a few kids in the mix, keeping the house picked up became a bigger challenge.
Here is the evidence
The swings new life as a coat hanger. And a basket that is full of things that were downstairs and should be upstairs… but just stayed in the basket instead of being put in appropriate places (been there 3 days).
and a Christmas tree with one wrapped present under it… about a week away from Christmas Day!
I hope that I never give you all the impression that I’m the perfect mom or wife or anything.
I’m not! Not even close!
I know some of you are much better house keepers than I will ever be! I think that it is healthy for us to all be real with each other and be honest with ourselves.
I think at the end of the day, it comes down to priorities. I would much rather cook or do an art activity with Aidalyn than have a spotless house on a daily basis. We do love having people over occasionally, to keep us in check and put everything away to start fresh, haha.
What are your priorities? How to you keep your house from eating you sometimes?
