This is the story of my life! I have 3 toddlers! This is nothing! Eeks
So last week I got this email saying I had been nominated to be the Messy Mom of the Week! My first thought was, What tha ...!? But then as I looked around at the mess I gladly accepted!
I am so excited that I am going to be featured on Messy Moms Radio's blog on Wednesday and the Messy Moms Radio Show on Thursday! I am actually going to call in and answer some questions! LIVE!!! Haha I am a little nervous but I am sure it will be fun!
Having 3 toddlers, Messy is pretty much an understatement!
I was just having a conversation with a good friend the other day about organizing, cleaning etc. Last Sunday I spent 7 hours deep cleaning my house, from top to bottom. My hubs had been at drill all weekend and I thought it would be nice for him to come home to a clean house for once! As the kids took their afternoon naps I cleaned up the main rooms of the house again so he could come home and be amazed and then life happened… He got off later than expected and exactly 7 minutes after my 3 lil toddler tornadoes woke up the house looked like a disaster zone again! I cried and said forget it! He came home to the same disaster as he does every other day.
The saying that cleaning while your kids awake is like brushing your teeth while eating oreos or trying to shovel during a blizzard is so true! I used to think having 3 under 3 was crazy, ya know back when I had a 2 year old, a 1 year old and a new born.. then my youngest started walking and now 3 toddlers is non stop fun! They climb on everything, they always spill goldfish, cheeseits and cheerios all over my floor! They throw food, they eat in the living room, they throw their toys every where, they have been known to take off diapers and hide poop nuggets around my house, they pee on the floor from time to time, they spill things constantly... they are complete beasts some times but they are also a ton of FUN! They are sweet, loving, polite and the best things in our lives!
Life is messy! Life is crazy but life is also beautiful and I wouldn't trade our mess for anything in the world!
