Today over at Home Tour Tuesday...the topic is "MY PEACEFUL PLACE" in our home.
Now keep in mind I'm a mommy of soon to be 5 so those kind of things for me are few and far between...I mean hello? Peaceful and MY PLACE....nothing is peaceful in the house except after the hours of 11pm....and nothing is mine anymore....Really? When you're a mom you give all that stuff up. If you don't then your a bad mom! (if you felt guilt reading that...not my fault) haha Kidding........(sort of)
Now now No laughing...I'll show you mine and explain.....
It's the guest bathroom. You see this is my sanctuary of getting 5-10 mins away from the kids. If I head upstairs it's like they have radar....if I stay downstairs they may not know. The 5-10 mins is....if they don't notice me after 5 mins...then I have another 5...equals 10....get it? Most of the time they DO notice me. What is it about kids when mom moves it's like all eyes get on us?
So here's the best part...I usually lie.....yep moms lie. I mean who wants to see their mom in the bathroom? My boys sure don't...Mini Me is indifferent...and Lily would hang on my legs no matter what it is I'm doing...she hates me out of her sight! Behind the potty is a basket of magazines and books...THAT'S MY STASH...some ppl horde candy...I'm hording books. Right now I'm on book 4 of Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series!
So there you have it....I'm a Liar! Yes sometimes I really do need to go......but most of the time I'm faking it.....shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
