I am just ranting here so please feel free to skip by this post if you like.
having been reading a friends blog recently it got me thinking about what is actually important in ife. I feel that what was imprtant to me 10 years ago is not even a priority now and have been replaced by other things. I guess that when you have children life takes on a whole new meaning.
I have been trying to reclaim some of the house and banish some of the childrens toys away to their bedrooms. The problem with this is that they want to play where the adults are.."Downstairs". Really though is this a real problem? Is it nice that the children want to be close by and in a few years when they become moody teenagers i will be trying to pull them from their rooms by any means. ? Will the world end because there are toys around the house and evidence of the children who live hear?
I think that the answer to these questions is pretty simple..NO...
It may not be tidy but it is loved and treasured.
It may not be a show home from one of those glossy magazines.
There may be piles of laundry waiting at various stages of completion.
It may not be many things but it is our HOME and we LOVE it.
My childrens friends love to come here, they are allowed to paint, get the glitter out, play with play doh, bake cakes and a whole list of other such stuff that the children enjoy. Things that there parents admit that they are not allowed to do at home for fear that a speck of glitter may get on the carpet and yes their omes are alwas emaculate with no evidence that a child even lves there.
this post is not to offend anyone to manages the imaculate home with a house full of children and works and and and... so please dont get cross, my hat goes off to you if you can do it all. these are only my random thoughts and are here to remind me of what is important to me right now. Domestic Goddess I am not but Happy Mamma I am.
