Instagram and Facebook photos. I don't get it? Ha. I was the baby of the family. Babies are known to be the messies. Whyyyyy can't I retrain myself to be like this fantastical, amazing, pefecto woman, wife, mom, everything? My husband said, "All those women you compare yourself to, are they homeschooling a large family? Because it's just not the same otherwise and it's not fair to compare yourself to someone where their life is just completely different." I love my husband. It always puts it back into perspective for me. :)
Not sure how clutter gets back into my house but it does. We are not shopaholics here but it just makes sense that which 9 people, stuff can just add up quick with birthday and holidays. It's like this never ending carousel for me that I've learned to just deal with rather than loathe. Some people can just stay right on top of it. I'm amazed by them.... unless something or someone(s) important in their life is being replaced to do it. I want my kids to grow up and really feel they know me. I hope they'll say we had a relationship. I promise, the clean house doesn't matter because that's such a faded part in my memory of my own past. I remember the relationship stuff.
Usually the softie to come to her side is Ivy. Ivy will hug her, change her diaper, get her a bottle, and they'll snuggle. However, Ivy got trapped into playing in her castle with her at 1am. Anytime Ivy tried to walk out Juliet would cry. In fact, when I took this picture, that's exactly why Juliet was crying in it. Ivy felt bad, came back in, and when she did, Juliet pushed-forced her towards the castle. Ivy and Juliet are giggling their heads off right now.
