Lots of people ask me how I do it. How do I manage to sew with three little kids tearing around? How do I manage to get three kids out the door in a semi-timely manner? How do I even manage to have a shower?
Sometimes people have called me Super Mom because of these so-called skills I have.
Well, Super Mom I am not.
How do I manage to have a shower?
Because my livingroom looks like this:
It almost always looks like that. Yes, that is laundry from three days ago waiting to be put away sitting on the couch.
How do I find time to sew? Because my kitchen looks like this:
And how did I manage to get all of us out the door to get Seth to school on time this morning? Because I left my bedroom looking like this:
I’m not a terrible housekeeper, but I’m definitely not a great one. I usually try to get everything semi-tidy before Neil comes home from work, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen because my priority happened to be a nap instead of housework on a particular day. I do try to do one “chore” a day but it’s 7:12 pm and I haven’t done today’s chore yet so I probably won’t. Who wants to clean bathrooms anyway?
Anyway, now you know the truth. I am not amazing. I’m normal. I DO sew and I DO shower and I DO occasionally take my kids places. But when those things happen, other things do not. I’m okay with that. We’re happy and loved and that’s good enough for me. I bet it’s good enough for you too!
