I know I’ve been a blog slacker lately. I just feel like I’m trapped in a place that leaves very little time to be inspired to write or be creative in any way, shape, or form. I want out of this place but having four small children makes it seem almost impossible. I’m trying so hard to be better at keeping my house in a somewhat tidy state. At least trying to clean bathrooms weekly. Trust me, with three boys in the house, that’s a necessity. But I’m realizing that trying to keep the house clean-ish, or even just trying to get one main task done every day, even if it’s something as small as cleaning one bathroom, leaves basically no time for anything else. It probably sounds pathetic, and maybe you’re thinking that I must just be terribly unorganized with my time, and maybe I am. But I don’t know, it’s just an endless cycle of feeding and washing up and folding laundry and breastfeeding, over and over and over again. It’s hard to find any creative time or me time in there. But I think I need to, because I’m feeling so irritable and blah about life these days, and that’s not really how I want to live. It’s so hard to find a balance in life, and maybe even impossible, but I would like to try. I wonder, is it possible to have less pee on my bathroom floors AND have some fun in life too? I would like to hope so. It’s a busy season, this four little children thing, but it’s a short one, I know. I’m up to my eyeballs right now, but one day I won’t be. So I’ll try not to complain. And hopefully some inspiration will find me soon.
And on that note, look, Ivy is in a booster seat while we wait for her new high chair to arrive.
She thinks it’s the bestest.
And look at my brown-eyed babies together.
They even have the same haircut.
Yep, so many good things in life still.
