Laundry Days seem to NEVER end...
First of all I want to thank my amazing talented cousin for taking these pictures. Her name is Megan and she started taking photography classes about a month ago. She is really talented.
Is it just me or does everyone feel like this about laundry? I mean once you think you are caught up somebody brings down another hamper and you start all over again. When I originally saw this picture I thought to myself, maybe if I stuff myself in the dryer the laundry will go away. (Second thought, how does one stuff themselves into a dryer anyway?) And thirdly, That is a TON of clothes! I have probably had more around my washer if that is even possible. (Yes it is.) Laundry is the bane of my existence but I still have to wash clothes. (Well we all could go around naked but since I don't have the body of Cindy Crawford or Kelly Ripa I'll spare you that, ok?)
I have come up with a solution for keeping up with laundry. Stay on top of it. Don't neglect your dirty clothes. (I know this is easier said then done when everything else calls our attention...FB, Blogging, exercise, our children...etc...)
I have tried to keep up with laundry this past month. It is looking better. Now if I could stay on top of putting it all away...
The other picture is classic mother to me. We need a little peace in our life. We enter our bathroom (that is suppose to be a sanctuary, but instead is filled with our children's toys) for a bubble bath. We are too tired to take the toys out of the tub. We crawl into the hot water and breathe. Relaxing? Not really. I have a rubber duck floating on my toes, I am sitting on a little pony, and Barbie is staring at me as if to say, "Don't you think you could lose some weight?"
But as mothers we relish in our bubble baths WITHOUT the children. Hopefully we have locked the door because if we haven't in a minute there will be NO privacy. I personally like bubble baths. The toys are not a problem anymore because we have 3 bathrooms. :) Do yourself a favor all you mothers out there, go take a bubble bath. Tell your hubby you need some time alone for a bit and just relax. It opens up your mind and reminds us that we need to slow down every once in a while. Thanks Megan for the reminder.
I hope everyone has a Happy Monday!
