goodbye tidy home

dishes are not my strong point.. obviously

Im not one of those moms who has it together.  I'm clearly having a hard time balancing a baby, work and a house all at the same time.  Its crazy over here!  Sometimes I feel so defeated when I look around at the tornado that hit our house I don't even know where to start.  And sitting on the couch eating chocolate chips while watching Ice Loves Coco isn't helping anything either.  

I'm so pooped that when Quinne is 'napping' I just want to zone out.  Or make a chocolate bunt cake (true story, it happened this morning).  When Quinne is awake I want to spend as much time with her as possible.  I don't want to miss out on anything she does.  And these days she does new things all the time.  I would kick myself if I missed her rolling over for the first time because I was polishing the dining room table.  Not that I ever do that.  

The chores can wait.  They will always be there waiting for me.  These days are for hanging out with my baby.  


  1. So true Noelle! Babies are messy. Period. I have food on my floor at all times even though I sweep 9,000 times a day. :/

  2. I don't know how moms do it! We just got our puppy Frankie last week and it has been a LOT of work and she's not even a human.
