Stay-at-home moms have perfect houses, right?
Empty laundry hampers, pristine carpets, labeled and sorted baskets for toys and such, meals made from scratch waiting in the oven.
Not so much.
My home rarely looks like anything out of the pages of HGTV Magazine.
Most days look something like this...
Chase my children around while they: pull books off the shelves, smear leftover oatmeal across the wall, fight over stuffed animals, plaster stickers on every piece of furniture we own, topple the stack of clean cups from the drying rack, sprinkle raisins across the rug, decorate the kitchen table with blue and orange crayons, rip costumes and swimsuits out of the drawers, organize my jewelry across my bedroom floor.
Need I go on?
Sometimes I think the hardest part about being a stay-at-home mom is that you feel pressure to have something spectacular to show for the all the time you spend around your house.
But then I remember that I do have something pretty cool to show for it.
And Thing 2
Hope you are having a splendid week.
