Above is a photo of my living room on a good day. Below is how it looks on every other day.
Oh alright, you’ve got me, the top picture is not my living room. Ever.
There are no photos of my living room in a tidy state for one, or all of the below reasons:
- They are yet to invent a camera that works that fast.
- The time between tidying the living room and finding my iPhone is long enough for the kids to completely destroy my efforts (12 seconds).
- The last time it was photo tidy, I was not aware that it would be the last time EVER and thus, did not think to take a photo to remember it by.
- After tidying my living room I am too busy to take a photo because I am guarding the entrance in an attempt to beat the previous tidy record of 12 seconds. I am as yet unsuccessful.
The title of this post is from a quote I read online awhile ago and related to quite well:
“Cleaning house while the kids are still growing is like shovelling snow while it is still snowing.” ~ Phyllis Diller
