Not too long ago I posted on my FB status about wanting to be a fly on the wall at the homes of 2 of my friends. One because she has a big family (7 kids – Lod bless her!) and I’d love to see how she handles her (not so) little tribe and how she is able to sew, knit, quilt and making up PDF tutes for us when she has a family to care for. I’m in awe really. Here I am with just 3 kids and I find that these days, I have to sacrifice one thing in order to do another. A fantastic example is me choosing knitting over house work! lol Of course this explains why my home looks like a hurricane had blown through. But then again, it always looks this way. HAHAHA!!
Yes, I have to shamelessly admit that I’m no good at housework at all. The one thing I wished I didnt have to do was housework….cooking, I can still deal with but housework…ugghh, if I can put it off, I normally do. So my home is generally an ok home. I try to keep it tidy but with 2 toddlers around, it’s not easy. Hence during the day, it’s pretty much a warzone of toys strewn all over the place. And it’s only at night that I *try* to tidy up to have it all strewn all over again the next day.
That said, I have to admit that Arianna has a bit of OCD in her. Not much but at least I’ve seen her put her books and toys away to where she found it. And it has to be at the right spot as well. And you can’t move her toys away from how she has arranged them or hell hath no fury like a crazy little girl!! *shudders*
The other home I’d like to chill out at is the home of the owner of one of my online shopping shops. She’s got fabrilicious fabric and magazines and ribbons and omg, everything related to sewing really!! lol Also she can cook up a storm. I am also in awe of this woman who runs a super successful online fabric shopping store all on her own!! No one to help her, just herself. With her ever growing customer base, I really taking my hat off to her! That’s one super mom right there.
O be be like these women would be my ultimate dream….what’s their secret?
