that i don't have it all together.
or get it all done.
i keep getting comments or emails asking "how do you do it all?"
"how can you handle everything?"
you say you feel exhausted.
i got another one of those emails yesterday.
i looked up from my computer and shook my head.
i picked up my camera and made sure i showed you the reality of my home.
i did not touch one thing in these rooms.
this is exactly what they looked like at 10 AM yesterday.
i am not proud of this.
but this is reality.
we do clean it up....but it never stays clean.
my kids have lots of chores but yet it always is a big ol' mess in here!
i get really discouraged when i clean it up or we all clean up and by bedtime.....
it looks just as dirty as before.
it is a vicious cycle.
so now you know....i do not have it all together.
i'm sure you knew this was real life but i think in blogland we often forget.
we see the pretty all the time and think "why can't i be that way?"
"how can SHE get all of that done?"
"what is wrong with ME?!"
the pretty-pretty is not real life.
over flowing toilets
kids throwing up all night
piles of shoes
that is real....but not fun to look at.
cut yourself some slack today.
i am trying my best to be a great mom and i bet you are too.
that is all we can do!
now i have to hang christmas decorations.
AND obviously....CLEAN SOMETHING.
