It is no secret that I am not on a schedule. I clean as needed, I cook sporadically, and do random things throughout the day. I did not have to be on a schedule prior to Landry. I guess I shouldn't say I have never been on a schedule, because I used to work, out of the home four days a week and clean on Fridays. All day Friday I cleaned! That does not cut it anymore! I now have someone else with me twenty-four seven! Being a stay at home mommy is by FAR my favorite job. It is also the most challenging job I have faced. There are days that I would love a 30 minute coffee break, but I wouldn't trade this chaotic life for anything!
We don't live with a lot of clutter, because it stresses me out! I have just been so overwhelmed with house work since having a new little one to care for and I get WAYY behind. About two weeks ago, I stumbled upon a website called, fly lady! I really like it and I am going to try to use some of the methods they suggest for staying on task. We will have company over soon, so I have been cleaning like crazy. Now that the house is as clean as I can get it, it is time to start "flying!"
Landry decided she wanted to help me clean! She started, by wiping the floors with her spit up! YUCK!!!!! I'm sorry if this post is disgusting (it is disgusting), but this is real life, with a real baby!
Mom!!! I didn't do anything!
Let's pile up in the laundry basket with the clothes and have some FUN! I carried her around the house like this and she thought it was wonderful!
This was my do to list. It says, "SHARED," but, unless you consider what Landry did sharing, it was not a shared list!
This is how we both felt after accomplishing a LONG list of "to-dos!" I wish I could nap like a baby!
I thank you for a house to clean, a child to care for, and a family to cook for!
