So this is what parents meant.
And here I was, thinking that because I'm, like, so organized, I could handle it.
Nope. I can't.
What they say is true….
It is humanly impossible to keep your house clean with a toddler.
The tupperware goes in the cupboards, the tupperware comes out of the cupboards. A thousand times.
Toys go into the basket, toys come out of the basket and are strewn across the floor. Always.
Clean diapers are dragged here and there.
There are clothes. Blankets. Socks. Shoes. Sippy cups. Cords. Books. Hair brushes. Wipes.
And if I pick it up and put it away…it shan't be long until it makes it's appearance once again.
And her favorite stuffed animal piggy? Well, he's always on the move.
I swear I clean my house – multiple times per day – I swear! But if you randomly stopped by to say hello, well my friend, the Lord has his ways of humbling us – doesn't he?
Amidst the chaos of a walking and adventurous little one, I'm thankful to have at least one thing in order: here's our menu for the next week!
Note: When I say “fresh fruit,” I mean apples and pears we picked from the nearby orchard. That's what's in season and that's what we've got!
Dinner: Jas and Leena are coming for dinner to celebrate Halloween! Grass-fed beef hamburgers with avocado and homemade buns, sweet potato wedges, green salad, freshly squeeze homemade apple cider
Dinner: Roasted root vegetables on a bed of brown rice with mustard vinaigrette and grilled salmon fillets with olive oil, salt & honey
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to throw caution to the wind and clean my house even though I know in approximately 4.5 minutes it will be destroyed, once again.
And have a great weekend!
