Why bother?

A wise woman once said...
"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing."
~Phyllis Diller

Ain't that the truth...





Don't even speculate how many times a day I ask them to put the cushions back on the couch!

I'm trying to follow the example of nienie and embrace every moment of motherhood!!
Thank you to her and her sister cj's shining example. My prayers are there. Their nuggets of truth, pearls of wisdom, and straight-up wonderful writing and retrospection and introspection encourage me (and make me cry) every day. I just love this blogging world!

I completely agree, I wait to clean it all up until they are napping and then I sit in peace in a clean house for 1 hour a day!! Once the naps are gone though..... I assume I lose that hour of clean peace.

That is hilarious because it is so TRUE!

that purple couch gets so much love! I wonder if it had the words to express what would ol purple couch say? Lots of love! I am obsessed with nienie and her sister and their creativeness.

P.S
i totally stalk you too.

Ditto for me, too, on nienie, cjane and cleaning. Those couches are a treasure - you should write a children's book about them. You can NEVER get rid of them. Love you!! Mom
