It's a never ending story

"I was a ok housekeeper, then I had kids"

Unless your family are ok with not wearing clothes or eating, the chances of you having to, wash and fold, cook and clean, are to be expected.


There is no such thing as being "caught" up, if you are a mom. Each day, you are doing the same thing. You get them something to wear, to eat, and try to maintain sorta a nice enough, clean enough home. 

But today, I want to say something to you.

You are doing a GREAT job, those crumb that you have under the kitchen table are there because you feed your family well. That laundry pile, is beautiful, because they have kept them warm and prevented public indecency.  Oh and that sink, a great testimony of the beautiful creative culinary art that was being created here.

Take a deep breath, a cup of coffee, put on some music, have fun, clean a bit and remember, it will be all cleaned (maybe not all at the same time) but it will, eventually.

Would you kids rather see you smiling and having fun or being grumpy.. the choice is yours!

  1. This reminds me of the Bible verse that talks about "where there are no oxen, the crib is clean." Let me be thankful that there are those I love in my home to feed and clean up after!

  3. This is awesome! You should link it up to my linky party on Monday because it's good for us to be reminded of this!

    I am behind in my laundry due to my modified bed rest so my home is a great example that we are living here, lol! ;)

  4. So so true! I have had far too many grumpy days...feeling overwhelmed because of the relentlessness of mouthing young kids, but my home, though messy and a wee bit crazy, is full of love. Great post! -Joanna {the craftyhomeschoolmama}
