Call Me a Member-For-Life

A couple of other mommies have started their own little association. This is one I could really get involved in. I think it was made for me. It's called the Mom's With Trashed Houses But That's OK Because We Have Good Kid's Club. So, in an effort to participate and air all my dirty laundry (actually, that's the clean stuff) for potentially millions of stranger, here is my picture:



I know for a fact that I have just horrifed my mother, aunts, cousins and grandmothers, but the truth has to come out. Hubby has been in Minnesota for a week, and the house has degenerated. All the clothing you see just needs to be folded. As soon as I do, though, the kids will dump it all over the floor. Like I need that kind of grief right now. Tomorrow morning the kids are going to Grandma C's house first thing, and I am going to have a whole blessed morning to get my house clean. It just doesn't work with them running around and no Hubby here in the evenings. I always try to pick things up before he comes home from work, but since no one is coming to my house, I just haven't had sufficient time or motivation.

If you'd like to see the other member's pictures, check here, here and here.

Fridays are my day for cleaning too--

And your comment about horrified relatives cracked me up. :)

Yeah, it cracked me up too, tee hee. I am remembering messes in our house when "the Child" was a toddler. Next time you are here, I'll show you some old snapshots.

When Lauren and Allison were your children's age...I referred to them as the "seek and destroy" team. Don't sweat a messy house, just enjoy your little ones. Time passes too quickly.

Believe it or not, my house looks the same right now. Plus I've got boxes everywhere,packed, half packed, and empty.

Hey, I think I have one of those badges in the bottom of my purse. Or was it in my other pair of jeans...?

There are often weeks that all the other clothes get folded but that kids live out of a basket. It's like how you have to pull the dishes out of the dishwasher to set the table for dinner.

I love it! Congratulations, and welcome to the club! I hope that others will want to join the ranks! I think there are many in our situation, but there are few who are brave enough to "air the dirty laundry".

Great post. I see that I would feel at home in your home.

Our girls are 18 and 21 now, but we have dogs who have toys strewn all over the house now.

If I had taken a pic of my house this morning you would feel SO much better about yours.

Looks like my home, only I am adding a child later this month.
