A while back, my best friend came over with her 2 kids. This is nice for numerous reasons, one being that all 5 kids play really well together and entertain one another. This of course, allows Beth and I to talk and work on women's ministry which is what we did on this particular day. The kids have so much fun playing and using their imagination, I don't always notice the "fun" that is being created around the house; not that I would make them stop even if I did. I figure this is partly what summer is about-me at home trying to keep up with the housework while 3 kids follow behind me and mess it back up.
After they left, instead of actually cleaning it up, I decided to take pictures. Besides, I wasn't about to clean up the mess for them. I had enough of my own to clean up. So, in case you are feeling a little overwhelmed with housework, I thought I would share my mess of a house with you to hopefully make you feel better.
|So I'm a little behind on the dishes yes? Where am I even going to cook dinner. Good thing I don't like cooking. I think this ended up being a "let's go out to eat" night. Pitiful I know.|
|Well, this is the Walnut's and Hazelnut's room. It looks like the toys threw up everywhere. I just shut the door and tried to think happy thoughts.|
|This is another view of their room. Again, happy thoughts.|
|Now, on first glance, this might not look so bad; however, the truth is this stuff had been here for a couple of days. |
The kids and I got it cleaned up since these pictures were taken, but we promptly turned around and messed it up again.
Summer is definitely here in the Nutcase house!
