Real world

My boys always have on miss matched socks, Max throws magazines on the floor just because. This is also the place we seem to leave the baby wipes, in fact just before I wrote this Adam changed a poopy Max, and I changed a poopy Alex.
When I ask my boys to clean the basement/playroom lots of toys end up in the play house. I don't make the big boys make their beds.

They like to play the wii, a lot. Fortunately they have a list of things to do before they can play including homework, reading, cleaning, playing outside ect...... So that makes me feel slightly better about it.

I mean there are signs of video games on the walls of my basement.

The piano, where I had hoped to have a pretty display of pictures is also a place to place things after you walk in the door, or a play table.

The sink almost always has dishes in it......

With all the feet in my house, I sort of gave up on keeping the shoes organized.

I own every leapfrog fridge toy out there. The fridge DJ is somewhere else in the house right now.

Alex loves to watch anybody play basketball. He raises his hands and laughs with joy.

My master bath needs attention.

Bella has claimed this to be her spot.

My junk drawer lives up to its name.

I let my 17 month old have a bottle. He loves it, and I cant take it away from him.

The place of organization needs to be organized.

Instead of flour or sugar there are animal crackers.

I love to decorate the walls with the boys artwork.

There always seems to be a coat in the wrong place. ALWAYS.

Yep this is what the linen closet looks like.

There are always clothes on the couch waiting to be put away.

I have been told that my kitchen floor is very anthropology, but I cannot love it, and it cannot be what I decorate around.

That is the truth.

LOL I Love it! I always thought to does she keep her house so clean? Now I know you're human ;) You house looks a lot like mine although mine it probably a bit more cluttered! I keep our kid's shoes in a wicker basket by the door. That way they can still 'throw' them down and we're never having to look for the mate!

Love it all! Someday my house will be perfect. Perfectly boring!

Brandi said...

Oh sister of mine! We will someday miss the little shoes, the wipes, bottles, dishes in the sink, video games and toys on the piano. I know you are enjoying every minute of it, but if we are alike as I think we are sometimes, it drives us crazy! Thanks for sharing your human side, I love it :)

How refreshing! Now I feel that my house is somewhat normal.
