She was hanging out at my house this morning…with her green face, her smart little outfit, and her glistening manicure…ok, let’s just say she has a manicure. First, we overslept. Then I got the carpool schedule wrong and made everyone late to school. Then I obsessed and obsessed about my bathroom redo, thinking “If I could have any bathroom in the world, what would it look like?”, and then I turned myself inside and out to try to figure out how to make it into that room. Like seriously, is it remotely healthy to consider transforming my bathroom into the Taj Majal? Let’s get real.
You mess up carpool?...the kids still get to school and will likely grow up to be well functioning adults despite your faux paux. You cooked mac n’ cheese out of the box last night?....you still fed your children and they know that you love them. You can’t afford to create the room of your dreams?....your efforts create a home of love, self control, and beauty.
Let each of us make a pact to banish the Wicked Witch of Domesticity from our homes, call on the Good Witch of Let’s-Get-Real (pictured above) from time to time, and always remember:
(Oh, you had to know it was coming…)
