Nope, this isn't a joke.
These are actual pictures of my home last night.
I hardly let anyone inside my home these days, much less post these types of pics online.
But tonight I felt compelled to post these pics. It's time to not be ashamed of that awfully messy home. I'm proud of mine. It symbolizes all the hard hours I put into my job so I can provide for my family. If you are a full time working mom and dad like us, you don't have time to be a house maid too. That is just unreasonable.
And no. Your little one will not remember these days of living in a messy home. They will however remember all the love you gave them and they will (hopefully) appreciate how your hard work allowed them to go to college.
See in my mind, that is more important than having a clean home. Or at least I'll keep telling myself that instead of cleaning.
