I was surprised the other day when someone told me they wished they had my life. She commented that my house is decorated so cute and it is always clean and my kids are always so cute and happy and that my marriage is just wonderful and that it just seems like I’ve got it all together all the time.
Something that makes me smirkle is when someone comments on how my house is always clean and must be perfectly decorated and just so cute all of the time. HA!!!! The truth is that we haven’t lived in this house all that long, and most of my walls are still bare and I haven’t found a place for everything yet. I haven’t decorated it perfectly, not matter how good I’ve got you fooled. And of course, my house is NOT always clean. Here is what it looks like now, as I write this post:
I’ve pretty much always got a load or two of laundry waiting to be folded on my bed. It drives Casey CRAZY when he goes to get in bed at night and has to deal with this mess. And of course, because of this mess, our clothes sometimes have that “sat in the laundry basket for a week” look.
They don’t always love each other. Here is Benson is shoving his sisters face into the blanket at the beach.
Yes, they drew with SHARPIE on grandma’s counter.
There is always laundry.
Oh wait! Did I mention that my kids are messy?
They are messy.
Are you convinced that we are normal yet? Or maybe a little below average even?
Just remember that everything you see in people’s blogs isn’t always a true representation of how their lives are. You can’t compare someone’s best with your worst.
Even if it looks like we have it all together on our blog, we are still a little crazy on the inside. If you could peak into my home on a normal Wednesday, like today, you would see a very average family who doesn’t always have a perfect home. But we are happy here together, and I hope you are happy with your own little home wherever it is. And if you can take a tip here or a hint there or any inspiration at all from my blog, I hope it makes your a home a little more like the home of your dreams.
