Today I had a fun post planned for you, but sadly, it never quite materialized because life got in the way. Instead of putting together my post, I was hanging out at the pumpkin patch on my daughter’s first Kindergarten field trip. The kids had so much fun and I had forgotten just how excited they get for their first-ever field trip! They went on a hay ride, learned all about how pumpkins and corn grow, and then went off to visit the animals and play in the corn box. Each child got to pick a pumpkin and it was so much fun watching them try to choose just the “perfect” pumpkin! Tons of photos, tons of fun and somehow, tons of corn kernels left in the back seat of my car. :)
The field trip took up a large part of my day when I normally write – and then I came home to this:
No, we weren’t burglarized. This is the work of an active five-year old. Seriously?! How can one little girl make such a mess of her room in such a short time? I honestly can’t understand it. “No problem,” I thought, “I’ll just have her clean it when she gets home.” But then I remembered that she was having a friend over to play after school…a friend who has never been here before and whose mom has never been over before! Yikes! I can’t let this be my first impression! And so began the mad dash of cleaning her room, which took hours. (Why is it that I really only kick my cleaning into gear when guests are coming??)
So here is it, Wednesday morning, and I don’t have a fun decorating post to share with you. Instead I’m sharing my real-life story of being a mom to two busy kids. I’m thinking that today might be a second-cup-of-coffee type of day. :)
