Do you ever just look around your house and wonder, "Where did all this crap-ola come from?"! That's what I've been doing a lot of lately. Don't get me wrong - I do love having all of the fun baby gear that help make my life as a busy mom easier, but DANG if the sight of my family room doesn't make me cringe and feel so cluttered!
Just shy of 6 short weeks of having our sweet Andrew in our lives and we've got nearly half a dozen baby "things" that take up valuable real estate in our family room - where we spend tons of time. By the time you add the bassinet, swing, activity mat, bounce chair, etc. into the mix, it starts to feel just a tad bit like a day care. I say this to my husband at least daily. Sigh.
I know the time will come where I will long for the days of all the cluttery things that my growing family has accumulated, but for now I just wish it didn't make me crazy! Ah, the joys of motherhood.
How do you cope with all the kid gear and toys that seem to accumulate in your home?
