Wordless Wednesday: One of THOSE Mornings...

Tuesday morning, 8.37am. The Human Air-Raid Siren has been sounding all morning. Ears are ringing as the siren continues to wail... "Waaa-oooh! Waaa-oooh! I can't find my shoes / my top / my bag..." We make it to school after the Bell but thankfully the teacher hasn't taken the Roll yet. Even more thankfully I make my exit...

... and return to a scene of devastation. Indeed it seems that a bomb has gone off in my home. Cornflake-crusted highchair trays, bibs, bowls and empty bottles sprawl across my kitchen bench. Last night's dishes wait patiently to be rescued.


Blankets tumble across unmade beds, tangled with PJ's and other random messiness...


...wild beasts seem to have taken over...



I turn my back on all of it. I make myself a cup of coffee and retreat to the back porch with my little guy. I practise my self-portraits as we snuggle in the sunshine...
...sharing grapes and Crazy Face cookies...

Snuggling my sweet little boy is so much better than housework. The mess will still be there later. I'll get to it... eventually.

Yay for you! I neglect last nights dishes often. Thank you for sharing your pictures of the mess b/c I was feeling like I am the only one whose house can get that messy...it seems I'm in good company!

Hi there! I avoid housework at all cost. No worries from me!

Cindy said...

I agree. Your time was well spent!

"Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow,
For babies grow up, we've learnt to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep."

Don't know who wrote this (and I may not have remembered it quite right) but a friend from church gave this to me when Zoe was small. I kept it on the wall and made it my mission statement.

Well here goes Simone, I am following your instructions and hope this works.
The housework can wait,spend as much time with that little fella, as he will be off to school like his brother and sister.

Granny Winnie said...

Yippe, I have wrote down the instructions for future comments
