Don't be scared
Rebecca sent me a card with a sticker on the envelope that says, "Motherhood: a love greater than your love for sleep, organization and good personal hygiene."
Truer words have never spoken around here at the moment. That mess is only part of my current Christmas mess. Organization, schmorganization. I am operating on a limited time schedule here!
We are also very short on sleep, since Jack is currently "skeered" of everything. This apparently includes a fear of sleeping. Don't ask me. I am clearly not afraid of sleeping.
Hopefully by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, the Christmas mess will be cleaned up and Jack won't be skeered anymore.
P.S. Laura, all of this holiday stuff (and the stuff for Halloween, Easter, Valentine's Day, etc.) fits into a suprisingly small space. Most of our basement is the playroom for Jack, which also doubles as our family room, since the fireplace is down there. I can cram A LOT of crap into a closet. LOL
