My Disordered Life


For the next year my life is going to be disordered, unruly, and flat out dirty.

I've been spinning around the kitchen for the past hour trying to clean-up breakfast, prepare lunch for the girls and me, clean-up lunch, and get some meatballs in the crock pot of this afternoon's church pageant and birthday party for Jesus.   Phew!

And I've been trying not to slip and fall on this thing that is right in my path.  But typical me, I haven't bothered to bend over and pick it up.  Instead I just avoid and get more and more annoyed each time.

Ugh!  This house.  No order!  I really can't live like this.

Then I looked down to see what it was that I was actually cursing...

Do you know what that is?

That's a toilet paper roller.  

The culprit--Cordelia.  She absolutely loves to unroll all the toilet paper and pull out the roller and spread the love all over the house.  And no, I don't let her just play by herself in the bathroom.  There's usually a sister involved.  A sister that is using the bathroom and a younger sister that is very curious and watches and then helps and . . . 

Don't worry.  Please don't be afraid to come to my house.  I've put the bathroom back in order and I'm now, after looking at this photo, I think I'm going to mop too.

You're okay, Emily! Only several years of paper-towel-unrolling mischief. You're doing great! Beautiful Christmas card too.

You definitely have your hands full! But to me, someone without my own children (yet), you really inspire me because at the end of the day, after all of the events and parties and cooking, your children are loved. xoxo
