I beg to differ on this one! My house is untidy a lot of the time. However, as the author mentioned in my post says, 'it's a sign I have a life and not that I need to get one! Check out what I have written on the subject over at http://www.thewmparentingconnection.com/2011/08/untidy-house-untidy-life.html
As Erma Bombeck once quipped ' My theory on housework is, if the item doesn't multiply, smell, catch fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be.'
and I also agree that:
'cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I've learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to Sleep! I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!' Ruth Hamilton
Remember! The work will wait while you show the child the rainbow, but the rainbow won't wait while you do the work. --Author Unknown
Our house is clean enough to be healthy, and dirty enough to be happy.
