"My housekeeping style is best described as 'there appears to have been a struggle.' " 😂🌲 I found this quote today and could not stop laughing. The struggle is real mama's and to be honest I continuously chalk this truth up with one sentence. THEY LIVE HERE TOO. My house is lived in. It is as cleaned up as I can possibly make it without loosing my sanity. Honestly, this season is far too short to be spent following my five kiddos around with a mop in one hand and a rag in another. Wet, muddy rain-boots sprawled on the front porch show signs of outdoor play. A refrigerator covered inch by inch in artwork shows signs of creativity. A sink full of dirty dishes shows signs of full bellies. Block castles and blanket forts show signs of imagination. A night stand full of notes from my tiny tribe shows signs of love. Day by day, minute by minute, I find magic in the mess.
