Babies are considered little bundles of joy but I really wish people were honest and admitted that they're also little bundles of chaos. I mean look at our house right now! The only calm part of this picture is the sleeping baby. I'm going a little nutty. I don't like this much mess but if given the choice between sleep and organizing....right now I'll take sleep!
A huge part of the chaos is actually P's. But I can't get on her case about putting every single thing away when she's doing me the greatest favor of entertaining herself while I nurse baby G. There's parts of the day when I literally can't put the baby down and she's nursing for 2-3 straight hours. P makes forts, houses, art projects, sews, etc and of course leaves a giant mess. How can I get upset with her or put her creations away when she has done me the greatest favor ever?
For for now we'll be voted the messiest house in the city and as long as my two girls are ok then all else doesn't matter.
