I have had some bizarre symptoms the last month and have been put on mandatory bed rest. (Mandatory meaning Dr. Husband's strict orders) (Bed Rest meaning doing as little as possible with 4 kids running around) This means that Dr. husband, in addition to being our sole bread winner, has also had to become the house keeper. He gets home in the evening and starts in on the house work and laundry. The awesome husband award is going to have to get even bigger and better because this man is truly AMAZING and has certainly earned a good one! I have added heavily to the kids chores so that daddy has less to do when he gets home. They have been little troupers but I am remembering now why I'd rather just do things myself. I by no means have a spotless house on a regular basis but I like my drawers, cabinets and closets ORGANIZED! I am having to learn to let things go as my sweet little munchkins do their very best to help out. Things like this...
|This is a 5 year old boys idea of putting away the silverware.|
|You see that, right? Blue plates being sandwiched in between red plates |
and then more blue plates. They are supposed to be blue together and then red, in that order.
My 6 year old does not seem to have the same strong feelings about this.
I am SO grateful for all my helping little hands. In such a short time God has been able to begin to teach me what I have been incapable of learning in 32 years. To LET IT GO, to rest and not expect everything to be "just so". Next up - learning those three gracious little words when somebody outside the home offers to help. "Yes" and "thank you". This one may take a little longer! :)
P.S. I LOVE comments! Please don't be shy!
