I'm not sure if you caught this sight in my instastories the other day, but when i say i want to sell my house and move into a van or trailer. this is precisely why.
i hear quite often from people saying, it is so nice you can work from home and be with your kids all day.
well...picture this. busy day in the hair salon, kids running wild in the house with no-one to tell them to "clean that up before you start the other". making their own lunch and snack(most days). having the time of their life!
mom comes out from the salon door after a long day and sees that a bomb has gone off in almost every room of the house(but especially this one).
she tries to clean kitchen for her own sanity - where there are dirty peanut butter knives and breadcrumbs. spilled cereal bowls that the dog is now licking up, traces of snack evidence all over the counter and every cabinet door open.
tired from a day of work having to switch gears and somehow clean up, make supper, engage with children. its a lot.
so i left it. i ignored the mess because whats worse than a mess like this, is cleaning it daily(with them of course), or every few days, and then walking out to see it look a disaster again.
on saturday we all teamed together and cleaned this madness and tomorrow the kids go back to school.🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
ay. there are only so many hours in a day and some days i wish i could have just a few more. but we do what we can with the time that we have.
tomorrow we are getting back to a schedule and routine and i cannot be more excited!
how was your summer?
