My House is Too Full, Too Messy, and Oh-So-Happy

1 Flares 1 Flares ×
This is my house right now. It’s full of kids. It’s a hot mess. I mean, seriously, do you see that mess? *SHUDDER*
But all of my kids are home and I could care less about the mess for once. I’m not even picking up behind them (much) because I’m too busy enjoying the giggles. The giggles are abundant. My kids are really, really funny. So what if they range in age from 23 to 4? They have a lot in common and funny is my favorite commonality. 
I love them all, and they are all my favorites for very unique reasons. This week I feel incredibly blessed. I don’t get them all in one room very often anymore. I will enjoy this chaos while it lasts and I will revel in the mess that is now my home. 
Next week I’ll clean. This week? I’ll just enjoy the view through the chaos. Life is good and I’m one lucky momma!

    When I was growing up, all my mother wanted was for all of us to get along and be together. I had two younger brothers and we never really did get along real well (still don’t). But… now that I have kids of my own, I totally get it. All we really want as parents is for our kids to all be together and to get along. So happy you were able to have that this week.

  2. Ha! They aren’t getting along. The 2 oldest are fighting while the babies fight amongst themselves, but it doesn’t really matter anymore. Someday they’ll get it, right?

  3. I am pretty sure I don’t see a mess. What I see is a houseful of memories!


  5. See…Christmas isn’t so bad after all… 😉

  6. Love it!! I wish I would remember to take pictures when my house looks like this. Everyone looks so comfy and happy! Looks like you had a great Christmas!!

  7. Of course Bug is posing. 🙂
    So happy that you’re happy.

  8. I’m so happy for you:) Being with your babies (no matter how big they are) is the best!!

    So happy for you that you have a big, wonderful mess in your house!! My five kids are the loves of my life, as I can see the same is true for you. They can drive you mad, and never listen, but make you laugh, and finally realize Mom doesn’t know everything (I thought I did!!!) Best wishes for a very Happy New Year!

  10. Like you, I had all of my kids with me for a few days. My girls headed back to MN today and my heart is already aching for them. I’m glad you’re able to just enjoy your time with everyone!

  11. Right? I hope y’all had a Merry Christmas too!

  12. Exactly!

  13. Glad you got time with all of you babies too for the holidays. Just stinks when it has to end. 🙁

  14. Oh they do drive me mad for sure. Things have been crazy but I love them all so very much.

  15. Of course Bug is posing, that’s what they do, the little ones anyway. 🙂
