I spoke with a mom friend at a recent Mom's night out- and she commented on my blog- saying I was like super-mom- I immediately felt like I was being very inaccurate in my posting. I am SOOO far from super-mom it's not even funny! I realized that my posts are not depicting the most accurate picture of my life as a mom.
Today, for example, I stooped to an all time low on the mom-o-meter. My house was dirty- and by that I mean sticky floors, dust bunnies strolling around the hardwoods, and small piles of crumbs in places where crumbs should never be. So- I took action, and my angelbabies became veggiebabies for a little while....
Well- that idea lasted a couple weeks...maybe. Then my little-big-boy pulled all but two of them off of the wall. So- this morning we went to the local CVS and bought some Command hooks. ZZ helped me hang them, and while I was vacuuming the playroom- she was organizing the clothes (one of her favorite activities). I am hoping that by her organizing and taking part in the process, she will be motivated to keep them that way in the future????
The true test of this project will be decided once Mosie-man wakes up from his nap...stay tuned!
October is proving to be a busy month for our household- a baby shower in the city next weekend, a wedding in VT the following weekend, and Halloween. These are all busy events for me personally because, I have committed myself to hand making things for all of these events- something that I love to do- but it is something that consumes a lot of time. As the events pass I will share the results with you!
A Halloween hint- after much deliberation- Z has decided she wants to be a mermaid, of some sort:)
