don't be fooled

The other day I was talking texting with my college roomie, and she said something like, "I need to catch up with you on the songs and coloring!" To which I responded, "Don't be fooled. Most of the time we're just sitting around eating Cheerios and trying not to drool on the floor."

Which got me thinking: Maybe I should make things a little more clear on my blog too. We don't have it all together.

If you don't believe me:

*Yesterday I just totally blanked on changing Blythe's diaper in the morning. She woke up at 7:30. At NOON I realized she had leaked.*

*I haven't folded clothes at all in the month of September.*

*In my fridge there is less than half a container of sour cream, half a bag of cheese, three apples, some milk, and a loaf of bread. That's it. Well…that's it after I had Brent go dump three containers of "stuff" that had gotten moldy.*

*Let's not talk about my kitchen floor.*

*We ate Subway twice last week for supper. [I'm trying not to add any justifications to these, but it is softball season…]*

*Blythe hasn't eaten a green veggie in I don't know how long. She refuses.*

*We went two days without a roll of toilet paper in our house. I used a napkin once.*

A little blurry…but we're all in it for once! 
I could keep going, and I feel like at this point you believe me when I say that, but I'll stop there. So don't be fooled-- we don't have it all together and we're just getting by and loving each other the best we can! Give yourself a little grace if you are too!

Thanks for keepin' it real, Kels. From the last couple days, the first thing that springs to my mind is burning Eric's grilled cheese sandwiches I was making for lunch. I got totally distracted--yikes!
