Ok the answer is NO and YES! For me anyway. Majority of the day I do let the mess sit and wait. I make sure to enjoy playing with my little ONE YEAR OLD (GASP:: is she really one already?!) However once that little rascal is in bed, I try to muster up the energy to pick up the mess that was made, and then relax for a little while before bed.
I have learned very quickly that being supermom is not actually something that I can accomplish. I cannot always have a picture perfect house, and enjoy this little peanut. It took me a year, but I have embraced it! I love playing with my little girl, and watching her laugh and making her squeal in pure delight! I choose to make sure I give my child memories over having a spotless house. Because I cannot do both. ( I applaud those that are able to!)
Earlier this year I would have just played/taken care of Adeline all day and then go to bed which created a very messy home and a stressed out mama. It feels silly to admit that, but I just really struggled in keeping up with my house and my child. I feel like I have a great balance right now! my house is no where near perfect, but things actually get done!
And that makes me happy! :)
Ok I am off to bed, because it is far too late and this mama needs some sleep! :)
