I’ve never been a terribly neat person. It’s not that I don’t love a clean house. I do! It’s just it isn’t high on my priority list. I mean, why should I clean when I could do important things? Things that matter? Like stopping to have coffee with an old friend. Or working on my fantasy trilogy novel series. Or reading the Bible. Or playing with the cutest “baby” on earth. Or asking my husband how is day was. Or binge watching anything on Crackflix, I mean, Netflix. Or checking Facebook to see whether anyone recently had a baby or got engaged or got a haircut or ate a sandwich so good it needed its picture taken.
You know. The important things in life. And cleaning, in my world, normally doesn’t make that list. Which is why, most days, my house looks like this:
This is the desk. I have new plans for this desk, but right now it just catches all of the evil paper that our house seems to attract. And bottles of paint, random spray bottles, and bike seats. Where does all of this randomness come from, MARK?
This is our kitchen floor. Filled with laundry. I’d love to tell you that all of those clothes made it into their appropriate homes less than 12 hours after this photo was taken, but I’d be lying. The truth is I probably got dressed in the kitchen more times than I care to admit that week.
I am sharing this truth with you because I
am insane want to invite any moms that are reading this and thinking, “Ha! That looks like our house!” to the first meeting of the HHBC MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) Group on August 23rd at 6:30 P.M. at Haywood Hills Baptist Church. And this seemed like a clever way to do that.
The theme this year is A Beautiful Mess which is so appropriate for (most) moms of little ones. This season of life is like living in Tazmanian Devil’s dirt cloud. It’s crazy and messy and overwhelming and kind of awe-inspiring all at the same time.
If you’d like a friend during the mess, the MOPS moms really are a great group of ladies. Nothing like the mean girls from last week’s post. I’ve enjoyed meeting women I would never have crossed paths with if it weren’t for this group. I’ve loved learning from them, laughing with them, and being encouraged by them.
If you’re looking for a Mom Group, we’re a great group to try out!
