I kinda feel the need to point it out after walking through my front door and realising the tidying/washing/ironing fairy hasn't been!
This is the pile of washing up:
I won't show the rest of the kitchen....
It's not that I don't tidy up, I just don't do it every minute of the day.
As you may know I have 3 boys. They are 10, 6 and 4. They are my world and my life revolves around them. I am their rock, their anchor in a world where the oldest has a different dad from the other 2 and none of their dads live with us.. (mega complicated!)
I work freelance as a sewing teacher and make a patchwork quilts for friends. In my spare time I am a Scout leader - if I wasn't the group would fold.
For me my time with my boys is precious. We have fun, we go on adventures and we empty huge boxes of Lego out on the floor for days on end... but my housekeeping skills aren't great!
Everyone is healthy, fed and happy. They are never without and they have a wealth of fun memories...
We do tackle the house every so often - mostly when we have visitors to be fair!
So is my messy house a sign I have failed as a parent?
Or is it just simply a sign we are too busy learning, growing and being together?
