Whether we’re in our house for an hour or a whole day, after Adele goes to bed, we look around and see that our entire place is upside down. We’ve completely given up on cleaning throughout the day because it’s a futile waste of energy. I longingly remember back to the days when ‘infant Adele’ would be entertained by a single toy, book or a chain of plastic rings. I now spend 1-2 hours every single day tidying everything up. It’s exhausting. But to us, a clean house means a clear mind… and at this point, I need all the sanity I can get.
Here’s some ‘Before & After’ photos of our house this week…well really it’s like “Before & After & Before” because it is an endless cycle of Elmo, spilled milk, strawberries crushed into the rug, random Mrs. Potatohead pieces all over, emptied out toy bins and miscellaneous tupperware spread out everywhere. Welcome to our beautiful life:
