Kids Inspired

While mom was away taking care of assorted business, we were at home pining for her and getting the house ready for her return. I have to confess, the kids were inspired in their efforts, and showed, once again, that we are completely unworthy of them.

First off, they cleaned both bathrooms, scrubbing the sink and wiping the mirror, which can get nasty. They didn’t scrub the toilet, I did that, but you can only expect so much from an 8 and 11 year old. They cleaned their rooms and made their beds, and even put stuff away in the living room dining area. They really worked hard, and I was so impressed. N wanted to show off his new knee hockey rink, so he set it all up and left there for mom to see.

Needless to say, R really appreciated coming home to a clean house. We cleaned it so that it would be presentable for P&DR, and even when we learned that they might not be spending the night, we still wanted it to be clean for mom. I was in charge of laundry and clean towels and sheets. We scored on the perfect weather for hanging laundry, warm and breezy. I love when that happens.

Anyway, it was a nice homecoming on so many levels. The house is settling back into comfortable messiness, but that’s why they call it a home, right?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to elycefeliz for the pic.
