Blog Every Day in May - A Fantastic Quote!!
I'm not sure where this quote came from, but I really like it. I remember when my older children were young children, and it was just the four of us at home. My husband died when the three kids were young. I decided that as long as the house was reasonably clean we could live with it. They would all pitch in and help get things done so we could go and do fun things together. I had always heard the saying that "I can clean when they are gone".
I spent time doing things with them and I always loved it when summer came around and we had lots of time together. We took bike rides, spent afternoons at the public pool, had picnics in the park, and lots of other fun activities.
Now I have my youngest child, I remarried and had a child when my others were 18, 20, & 22. I have never worried about having a perfect house. There will be time for that soon. My youngest goes to college in the fall.
