Am I ashamed?

September 25th, 2006 at 01:03 pm

I went to a picnic at a church friends house last night, it was Nice, very nice, all decorated, big screen, all the fancy stuff dreams are made of (the grass was even greener Smile.)The company was nice too Smile

My house on the other hand, has a crib in the middle of the living room......and writing on the primered walls, still.

I would like to have some church friends over, but do I dare let them see my house, or should I go on a decorating/rearanging spree first?

Oddly enough, at least to me, I do not feel the need to go on that decorating spree, sure I would like to paint, but it isn't in the budget now, and I am not putting my life on hold waiting for it, and no amount of money will turn me from an occasional mower to a lawn pro!

And that writing stays on the wall to remind this over-demanding mother that he is only 4 (was 2 at the time)......and 4 year olds do NOT know everything. For example he does not know how to stop his one year old sister from finding a pencil and writing on the wall.....(I was only around the corner for a minute!)

    Well, my personal feeling is that you have small children and other people will just have to understand that this is what small children do.

    On the other hand, I'm glad that mine are older now. My youngest likes to cut stuff up, and make scrapbooks... out of scrap. But that's about it. Haha. No more trying to wash crayons off the wall!

    One day they will all be in school and you can decorate. But for now, enjoy those small years cos they go by really fast. I know people say that all the time, but it is true. Don't be hard on yourself cos you are doing the hardest and most rewarding job there is--mommy.
