Fitting It All In — 4 Comments

  1. ugh! the never ending laundry! LOL! Until my kids were 7, 9, and 13 I could never keep up. At this time though, I assigned each person a day of the week to learn to start doing their own laundry. Now they are 13, 15, and 19 it is going pretty well.
    I just have to say what a marvelous, patient, loving person you are! You little ones are so small yet you take them in the kitchen and teach them. AWESOME! I have been trying to teach my middle daughter some cooking skills…she is 15 and still just doens’t get some of the most simple things…but she is super book smart. Here is where my patients are tested. But we are getting there.
    It is good to stay busy with all these good things. My husbands family (from the city) just can’t believe that we don’t watch television. We are too busy for such nonsense!
    Thanks for sharing all your “staying home” ideas!

  2. Yay for young cooks!! Sophie loves to cook, and I’m grateful because I had no idea how to cook on my own! {so sad, but so true!}

    Messes can be cleaned up, and the memories that they make are SO worth it!!

    Right now I’m trying to get back on track after being sidelined for a few days with a nasty cold…and did I mention that we are going to a wedding this weekend? At the shore? With the girls?

    Yeah….I’ll be back on track by the middle of October!!

  3. Ugh, I HATE folding laundry. It’s the most terrible job in the world. I’d do the dishes over folding any day. I do my own laundry and the towels when my dad makes me, but no way am I going to do it willingly.

  4. Ugh, laundry. Laundry is my housekeeping Achilles heel. We just moved into a new house and the laundry room is in the master bedrooom (as opposed to the basement in the old house); I thought it would be easier – and it is – but what do you know? You still have to actually fold the laundry and put it away! That’s what gets me. I have no secrets to pass on.

    I love your cooking pictures…your “Almost Twin” boys look like my “Almost Twin” boys (mine are 14 months apart). They’ve been into “helping” in the kitchen too and I’m having some issues letting go of the control in order to let them learn. They have a great time though!
