Dear Mom,

this is for you because i know the disaster was bothering you just as much as it bothered me...
(if we are honest...it was probably bothering you more than me :)

i wanted to settle your mind so that you could sleep better knowing that your grandchildren were not going to continue to live in the disaster that you and poppy witnessed earlier today...

the house is now clean...


the laundry is 2 loads from being completed...



the last of the christmas bins are packed and waiting to be returned to their off season home...

and your grandson, while his pj's didn't fair so well, he, too, is now clean and running naked through the house
terrorizing his sister, the cat and the dogs.

i said the disaster was handled...not the mayhem.

that will take {years!}

i love you!!! thanks for being a great mom!

Julie,
The house looks wonderful. I'm sure you will all sleep well tonight.
Honestly, we both know what a neat freak I am and I can't help but wander how many precious times I have lost out on being that way over the years. I get the pleasure to witness all the love and happiness of your family and that is all that matters to me today. I can still smile thinking about Nolan on the motorcyle in his pj's this morning. That's just one of the gifts you have given me.
I love you
Mom

What a scream. Isn't it wonderful that our mothers still worry about us. I love the Christmas bin photo. Oh, how I love when those bins go back to the shed.
Have a fabulous day!
