My Floor Needs To Be Washed, But....






HAPPY SUMMER TO YOU ALL! OURS HAS BEEN FULL AND SUCH FUN, LOTS OF PICTURES AND MEMORIES, OF EVERY DAY STUFF AND SPECIAL STUFF WE DO ON THE WEEKEND WITH DADDY! I DIDN'T GET TO CLEAN MY FLOOR YESTERDAY OR THIS MORNING, BUT...WE DID MAKE HOMEADE GINGERSNAPS AND PUT SOME ASIDE FOR DADDY AND HIS FRIENDS AT WORK, WE DID CATCH FROGS THAT COME INTO OUR YARD FROM THE POND UP THE STREET. WE PUT THEM IN THE WATER TABLE OUTSIDE AND WATCH THEM SWIM. YESTERDAY WE HAD TWO AND MY DAUGHTER NAMED ONE CHARLIE AND I NAMED ONE HENRY. SHE GIGGLED AND HELD THEM AND SAID, "MOM, THEY SURE ARE JUMPY AND HOPPY! LIKE HAPPY, MOM?" AND LAUGHED BECAUSE SHE MADE A LITTLE JOKE! THEY RAN THRU THE SPRINKLER AND SWUNG TOGETHER ON THE SWINGS TRYING TO TOUCH THE CLOUDS WITH THEIR TOES. THEY HAD MESSY ICE CREAM CONES THAT GOT EVERYWHERE, AND SHARED WITH EACH OTHER. WE DID DANCE TO GOSPEL MUSIC AND SING. WE DID DO FINGERPAINTING AND MADE HAND AND FOOTPRINTS AND MADE A MESS! WE DID READ SO MANY BOOKS WE ALL FELT TIRED AFTER! ALL THIS IN YESTERDAY AFTER MY ERRANDS IN THE MORNING WERE DONE, AND THIS MORNING BEFORE THEY HAD SNACK AND ARE NOW NAPPING. SO WHILE MY FLOORS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN WASHED, I WILL REMEMBER THRU THE PICTURES WE TOOK, AND THE ART THEY CREATED, THE SIMPLICITY AND PURE INNOCENT BLISS OF JUST BEING A CHILD. WHAT THEY WILL REMEMBER IS UP TO ME, AND EVERY DAY IS FULL OF BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES YET TO BE MADE, I CAN ACCOMPLISH JUST BY BEING A STAY AT HOME MOMMY! 100 YEARS FROM NOW IT WILL NOT MATTER......

Glad I got to snitch a few of those delicious cookies too! You can make them anytime for me!
You're a great mom spending as much time as you can with the kids. They will always remember all the attention and love they got and not how clean the house was. I am so very proud of you.
