perhaps the thing I love the most about our (relatively new) house is the abundance of light that streams in through the kitchen and dining room windows every morning. to me, there's nothing like walking into a bright, cheery kitchen to get your day started off on the right note! hi-oh cheerio!
until I notice the epic breakfast and lunch-making mess left behind by the school kids. then that "oh what a beautiful day!" mentality goes sailing right down the drain. seriously. if someone were to ask me, " so, what have you accomplished in the past 15 years?" I'd say, "basically I've cleaned up messes I didn't make." mom life is so glamorous, isn't it? I can fix dinner, wipe snot noses, sign half a dozen school papers, break up fights, kiss owies, and bounce a crying baby on my hip all at the same time. I feel so accomplished!
Finley is currently taking breakfast orders. any requests? rumor has it he makes a mean bowl of oatmeal. especially tasty with a side of drool, or so I've heard.
