1. There may be disadvantages to the world knowing your Slob Secret, but it sure is nice when old friends who read your blog and know your heart come over and you don’t have to worry about having a perfect home.
2. How much would you be willing to pay to have your bathrooms wiped down nightly? My 8yo is currently obsessed with getting this ping-pong set. (Yes, we’ve been watching a LOT of Olympics.) Our chore chart gives TWO checks for wiping down the kids’ bathroom. He wanted to know if he could get six checks for wiping down all three bathrooms every night. Ummm, yeah. I’m good with that. (Now let’s see if he actually does it.)
3. When I was in the Toddler Trenches, I never thought this day would come, but it did. It sure is nice to be able to clean the kitchen while assigning all the other house-cleaning tasks to the kids. Things may not be perfect, but it’s great to see the fruits of my efforts to teach them basic cleaning skills.
4. Oh, and the kid who wants the ping-pong set? He asked if we could be sure that the dining room table always stay completely cleared once he gets it.
Good luck with that . . .
And those are my random thoughts at the end of this day when we went to the pool TWICE.
This Mama’s tired.
