The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Is it Just Me?

Am I the only adult, mom, wife in the world who keeps thinking all these chores are temporary?  I mean, seriously, when I clean up the kitchen, I always think, "I just need to do this today", like some cleaning fairy is going to come in and tidy up tomorrow, the kitchen is going to stop getting messed up, OR I'm going to win the lottery (sort of hard when you don't play it) and have a live in housekeeper like Alice from Brady Bunch.  Where is my house with a live-in housekeeper?  And where are my six kids who can share two bedrooms without being up 'til ten every night?  :)  How DID we get so far away from the 7:30 bedtime anyway?  And who in the heck is wearing ALL THESE CLOTHES I keep washing?  I know it's not me because I only wear about three things in my closet anyway.

Calgon, anyone?

And add to all of that..."Mom, this dinner is just so,so!" You gotta love a 5 year old! They truly don't have the fear of their mother yet..lol.

Send her my way when you are done with her...now wait...you had your two Moms there recently...invite them for another weekend! ;) and then send them to my house...

It is NOT just you . . . I keep wondering how so much sand ends up on my floor . . oh, wait . . . it's cuz our yard is a giant sandbox!

Our house is so messy I won't even invite people over cuz it's too much work to get it presentable . . . .

Oy!
