A Slightly Messy Home

I’m taking steps towards staying more organized and staying on top of my housework. I’m working on overcoming procrastination and making sure I have a clean table in the kitchen.ย However, I’m letting go of my quest for perfection and realizing that a {slightly} messy home is okay!

I’d much rather hold my son, read to him and play with him than have a perfect home!

Here’s a glimpse of what my home looks like most nights:

Pillows, quilts and throws just piled up, calculators, baby toys and books….signs of life and family!

Dishwasher, sink and counter full of dirty dishes…the result of a yummy dinner and homemade snickerdoodles!

And in our room…clean laundry yet to be put away, baby sling and my to-do list! The pack ‘n play is just indefinitely in our room, Paxton no longer sleeps there but we’ve yet to take it down, maybe one day!

It’s not perfect but that’s okay! I sure don’t regret just sitting on the couch and spending time with my hubby and baby boy!

  1. It's difficult to let that go isn't it? My house was spotless before kids. Now with 4 that forget to put stuff away, my house is clean but mostly messy! It drives me absolutely crazy, but its something I am still working on even after 9 years (that how old my oldest are). My house may be messy, but my babies are fed "made from scratch" delicious food, there clothes are clean (wrinkled too because I didn't get them folded right away) and they are happy kids (we spend alot of time playing together and "just being" together. I'm trying to enjoy it all now because I know it doesn't last.

  2. My house is WELL lived in most days! I am out numbered, so I can only do so much! My boys are pretty happy and good kids, so I'll have to save the spotless house for the time period of them going to college until grandkids. I've just learned to keep certain things under control and just not fret about the rest.

    It's all about priorities and you've got yours in the right place!
