When I posted yesterday about lowering my expectations, I neglected to include an example. Lucky for you, an opportunity to show off our messy side presented itself this morning.
I have combed Zinashi's hair since we took that photo, and she put on some slippers. I'm trying to decide if I'll let her just wear the slippers when we walk to Target to get the conditioner I meant to get yesterday (I accidentally grabbed shampoo and didn't even notice until I got home). Jarod is home, sick, and we need to get out of here. We won't be cleaning up before we hightail it to the garage to pull out the stroller. The mess stays, at least for now. So those of you who are feeling bad about your own messes can rest easy. If I'm leaving my house like this, you can, too.
Take it easy, and have a great weekend.
