mornings around our home look a little something like this most days. a clean family room, toys picked up and put in their designated places, kids deep in a book of their choice, a mellow record playing quietly in the background, mama cooking breakfast, the smell of espresso brewing... by the end of the day however, it looks a little different. imagine someone picking up this room, turning it upside down, shaking it up a bit like an etch-a-sketch and then turning it right side up again. toys and books everywhere, pillows and cushions off the couch, fuzz balls from the rug all over the house, clothes, shoes and other miscellaneous belongings that my kids take off and throw down where ever they please, stepped on, crunched up cheddar bunnies and other birdie snacks all over the floor.
the kids are all in bed now and the house is looking much like it does above. time to enjoy it and watch a little Breaking Bad with my husband.
