I was emailed about a recipe recently and at the end the emailer asked.
"How do you run a house 3 kids and cook all this yummy stuff all day long?"
Well I'd like to say "Oh it's easy!"
But lets be real... I can't possibly run a house, keep it spic and span, chase 2 busy boys, and nurse a very hungry 2 mo old constantly and cook amazing dinners and desserts EVERY day.
If you think you are a June Cleaver... Power too you! But seriously do you sleep?
As it is I get very little sleep and have very little time for a social life.
If you see me online through out the day... well it is because I am glued to my couch nursing round the clock with my laptop at my side...
I've gotten quite good at typing with one hand!
When I cook or bake, it is on a good day. A day when my boys are chilled out watching a movie or playing nicely together and my baby girl is taking a nap.
And as for a clean house.... well here take a look. You be the judge......
|My kitchen table... is often covered in half eaten food. (thanks for this mornings snack time mess Chasey!)|
|One corner or the toy barf in the boys rooms. Seriously looks like their THREE toy boxes threw up everywhere. And you know what.... THIS is clean for them!|
|My kitchen aid at any given point through out the day .... I tend to spread flour all over my house. This is only a piece of the mess I made while baking.|
Now look at what a mess I am on most days......
|Paint covered sweat pants.... and a cupcake tee... that looks like it should belong to a 12 yr old... I cropped my face out because I'm not ready to reveal myself without makeup :/ it is not pretty!|
My poor poor husband....
