How is it possible that another summer has come and gone?! I cannot believe how fast time flies by, especially after having kids. Us moms are so busy with making lunches and schedules and all the activities that we often forget to live in the moment (or at least I know I do). It’s so overwhelming to keep up with everything, how are we suppose to just enjoy this time. This is definitely a struggle of mine as well.
I’m slowly trying to forget about the mess, do what I can but NEVER sacrifice precious time with my babies. My mother asked me a few months ago if I ever remember having a “messy” house growing up. Of course I said “no”, I remember playing outside 24/7.” And she said “exactly, our house was NOT clean. But you didn’t even notice. Don’t let it overwhelm you because the boys wont remember. They will remember the adventure.”
Wooh. How many of you are trying to think back to your childhood and remember what your home was like?! Try it. You’ll realize the things we think we need to focus on now as a mother, really aren’t even noticed to our kids. So while a clean home feels great, don’t let that distract you from spending focused time with your family. And if you are afraid of what people will say of your not so perfect house, do what I do…. don’t invite them over!! HAHAHA totally kidding. But letting other people’s opinions run your life will only ruin your life. Live for you and your family babe!! You deserve it!
Until next time my friends!!!
