In the spirit of sharing like stories (like Erin's)... I thought I too shall post my messy kitchen.

I have come to terms that I am no bake sale mom... I hate cleaning, I have no plans on making dinner on a daily basis, we, as a family, hardly spend meal times together anyways. I have ironed twice in my whole life, I always have a wet load of clothes in the washer that smell like mildew. I have a jungle of a lawn in the front of my house and a pile of dirty dishes in my sink.

I am dreading the day my son joins little league and such because I will be the mom that shows up in pj's and brings McDonald's dollar hamburgers for the day I am suppose to bring snack for the whole team. I can picture Eli running down the field in wrinkly shorts and mixed matched socks...

Yesterday I bought a "child leash" for Elijah. I figure I would rather other people comment on how horrible the leash is than comment how horrible a mother I am for loosing my child in a store.

Soooo... Here I am... standing firm in my undomesticated ways...

  1. Well, I have to say that it's nice to not be standing alone in my undomesticated ways. So many women blog about cooking and sewing and doing neat craft projects with their kids, and I so wish I was that person, and hope to one day be. But I guess we just have to be content in the mothers God made us to be, as imperfect as we are :)
