The Laundry Can Wait.....Literally

Today has been one of those days. It's rainy outside. Our youngest is getting his molars in. Our oldest is tired of being inside. Today was suppose to be my big cleaning day. Mopping floors, scrubbing bathrooms, dusting and doing laundry.

Nate (our oldest) kept begging for my attention while I was cleaning and Jordan (our youngest) kept pulling things out and making messes and was very fussy. I was about to go crazy.

Finally lunch came and we cleaned up. I put Jordan down for a nap & he fell asleep almost right away. I was thinking,"Oh yay! I can get a lot accomplished now!". Not so fast Mama! :) Nate was still wanting my attention.

I finally told myself to just forget every thing! Not to much longer down the road my boys won't be wanting me this much.

In my devotions I feel like God has really been speaking to my heart about spending more time with them. To put the chores aside, forget about people texting me, leave social media alone and spend time with them. Because now is when they need it the most!

So I got Nates toys out and we sat down and played. It felt pretty good to forget about every thing and focus on him.

I can't believe how fast my boys are growing! Time flies!

Spending time with your children is worth everything!

If some one stops by and dishes are in your sink, who cares?? They can get over it if it's bothering them! And I'm sure it will bother you more then them anyhow!

Read books to your children. Build a car/house out of Legos. Play trucks/baby dolls with them. Let them help out with chores around the house! My boys love it when they get to help mommy! They think they are big stuff! :)

At the end of the day pray with them. That is one thing that will stick in their minds when they're older!

Now to get to my laundry and supper dishes done before I go to bed!

P.s. Remember to kiss their slobbery cheeks goodnight! Or if your children are older, still give them a kiss goodnight! ;)
