Yes, It's Lived In

Ok, so I have recently come across a blogging messy house soulmate in Becky. I'm not sure how I found her, but oh I love her!  If we didn't live across the country, we could be real life friends. I mean it.  How awesome would it be to have someone over who totally gets the laundry baskets, the turned over toys, the sink full of dishes, the piles of art stuff and papers on the table, the stuff waiting for a bin to be bought so it can be put away?!

I decided to take a few pictures of Tornado Lily after the 937853249th time I had picked up after her because, well, I was just plain exhausted and didn't want to deal with it.  This all occured while I was making supper.  AFTER I had picked up before my husband got home from work.  

Welcome to my world.

I had forgotten how exhausting a toddler can be.  Add to it a 7 year old girl who doesn't pick up after herself with ANYTHING and a 12 year old boy who leaves random items of clothing all throughout the house. His room? Well, that's another story. 

I've been inspired to get real about what a lived in house looks like.  :)

Don't forget my giveaway ends tonight!


  1. Oh my yes. I woke up with a clean family room and my 2.5yr old has proceeded to systematically destroy it as quickly as possible. Also, the almost-7-year-old is whining like mad about being made to clean his room. My house is destroyed and I'm trying to decorate for Christmas. ARGH.

  2. I live in a state of perpetual chaos, and my baby isn't even crawling or toddling yet! Oh my.

  3. Steph, we are soul sisters!! Thank you sooooo much for posting this. I'm not alone! Woohoo! That's one busy little girl. But, aren't they all??

  4. I said it on our cookie exchange post, but I'll say it again. One word: toynado. I live in it.

    Thanks for suggesting following her blog!
