I am somewhat of a ‘neat-freak’. I like my house clean, tidy; no clutter, no dishes in the sink, no random things lying around. But as I look around our home, it makes me smile to see the signs of having Nora around; a pacifier here, a blanket hanging from there, a stuffed animal on the couch, a swing to trip over.
While I still like to keep a tidy and clean house, I am not so anal about every little thing left lying around. I’d prefer to spend my time holding Nora than cleaning constantly. I like that our home isn’t so quiet or tidy anymore, I like that we are growing our family. In the years to come I may REVOKE these words and try and sell every toy I step on, but for now it is my sign of happiness and love.
