Hoping for a quiet day you go about the things you typically do when you have a burst of nesting energy and decided that today is the day to go through the baby clothes that the 2 kids have grown out of on order to get a move on getting ready for the baby coming. It was going well, really well. (The calm before the storm). Ben and I were in my room happily sorting through clothes and reminiscing at the very cute sleepers I was folding. The 2 kids were quite, very quite so I checked on them. To my surprise they were playing quite nicely in Ethan's room with the cars on the car mat. I went back to my task content that the 2 kids were behaving and giving me the freedom to work quickly.
After much folding and sorting I realized how quiet the 2 kids were in Ethan rooms. My kids are pretty good but what they are not is quiet. I figure I should poke my head in the room and see what they were up too. UTTER CHAOS had taken over Ethan's room. I think everything that was his was on the floor, his bed, under his bed. On top of that the bins of things I store on the top part of his closet were strew EVERYWHERE. Stuff that they know better than to touch. And he was still up there passing things down to Hannah. I cannot tell you how much my heart dropped at the site of such a mess. Hannah immediately knew I was upset, very upset. Ethan on the other hand seemed oblivious.
All that said I am super thankful for Andrew who talked me off the roof. I still haven't dealt with the mess but I needed to finish what I was doing in my room first. I often post about the fun and exciting things we do around here at our house. I post about what the kids are learning and the things that my kids do that I think is cute. Today is the other side, the messy side, the not so cute side. I'll end there because I have a mountain of things to do and a closet that is calling my name to hide in. In fact, I might just go straight to the closet to hide for awhile.
One of the cute moments.
