I’m a big fan of Proverbs 14:14: Where there are no oxen the crib is clean but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
My crib isn’t clean, people. Nor is my laundry room, bathroom or my life.
We have holes in the walls and dirty laundry.
And plenty of (proverbial) oxen.
Don’t get me wrong. Some parts of my house are clean. At the moment the kitchen is clean (I haven’t started dinner yet). The living room is clean (because the kids are still at school).
In spite of that, I am determined to capture the beauty of family life with my camera.
To treasure these days and store up happy memories.
Apollo has reached that magical stage of childhood called I can read independently.
If you’re a mom, then you understand this is pure magic.
Okay, so he’s using a Kindle Fire in this picture. But that is because I purchased it and the headphones to review. But I haven’t actually written the reviews yet. Probably in large part due to the fact that my allergies are killing me.
Foggy head, burning eyes, daily headache.
Spring. My second favorite time of year, right behind summer.
But spring, why must you come with allergies? The whole seasonal allergy thing is new to me. Ten years ago I didn’t have allergies. Now, they are my Achilles heel.
Anyone have a brilliant cure for seasonal allergies? I have tried allergy medicine and local honey…
So here’s to all of you perfect moms, not so perfect moms, and moms with messy lives.
Enjoy your kids. And your pets. Work hard, but play hard too.
We’re all in this together.
