a non-pinterest-worthy post…


and most days, it feels like
it’s hard to stay on top of it all.

i have a new friend/client who recently said,
“i heard you have a really easy baby so that’s why you can get so much done.”

i told cc that, and we both threw our heads back laughing.

i HAD an easy baby, but toddlers are different.

and while, yes, he is still a great kid, and i can’t complain,
it isn’t his fault that i keep filling my plate with tons of work to keep me
from doing all the mom and wife stuff…

i did make good food in the few times we had together as a family this weekend…
and those meals i can share {cause believe me, you’ll want them},
but since i spent friday afternoon on an impromptu commercial shoot,
and all day saturday, cc and i spent with 60 kids directing a roadshowinaday…

and in our few remaining waking ours we both at the computer, designing 150 cases to finish out our sale that ended last week…

it means, my kitchen looks like this…

and half the clean laundry lives here…

it means that i am literally wearing the same clothes as yesterday,
haven’t showered yet…
my kid is crying in his bed cause he doesn’t want to nap today…
and my list of things to do keeps growing…
and all i want to do is finish making the banana bars i started,
and sit down for 2 minutes to eat them in peace

and the truth is,
that’s life.

    God Bless you, woman! You're insanely busy, but it sounds like you've got it under control. Doing the dishes is really, really overrated in my opinion. 😉

    If it makes you feel better, both of my toddlers are running around the house naked right now, celebrating the fact that they both peed their pants. I've been potty training for a year and they still pee their pants. My kitchen is clean, but there is plenty of pee-soaked laundry to do. <—-That sounds way more disgusting than I anticipated!

    I've learned that the dishes are far more patient than anything else demanding my time! All our houses look like that, ESPECIALLY Mondays (for me at least).

    I DON'T have an easy baby, I work full-time, and my husband is in school full-time, so I GET IT. I say it is Pinterest-worthy because that's REAL LIFE sometimes.

    YAY! You were quoting me. So fun talking to you today even if we were both a bit scattered with children (and so much I wanted to talk about. I couldn't just cut to the chase and talk business when there is Rob Moffat and musical theatre and San Diego and Paul and Kristyn involved!–oh, and Peter had a tantrum after we hung up that falls into the "top 5 worst tantrums of all time"
