i needed this

boy, did i need to read this today:

"I think if you're a stay-at-home mom or dad, the main thing to remember is that you're staying home to raise children and spend quality time with them, not to have the perfect house."

i sometimes get in manic cleaning mode and want everything put away in it's place, all the dog hair vacuumed up, the counters cleaned, beds made, etc. just to feel normal. but, it's always good to read something like this to make me remember why i am staying home. i am so thankful for rhett for working so hard to provide for our family so i can play with court all day.  i love you babe!

so, i won't be cleaning much today, just playing with this little man and his daddy (who is finally done with the cfp test!! woohooo.... now we are just praying he passed!)

The quality time you're spending with both COURT and RHETT will reap so many're shaping a very important little boy's life, as well as contributing to a very healthy, happy marriage..the two greatest blessings of all~
They're BOTH so lucky to have YOU in their lives!

Thank GOD I am not the only one!
Couldn't agree with "Mimi" more! Unfortunately I suffer from the "cleanliness" illness 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days of the year. Train yourself now...
leave it (the house that is).... NO ONE will ever remember how clean or picked up the house was....but Court, Rhett and all the other (LOTS AND LOTS) little Patterson's to come will NEVER forget the time that they had with you!

Enjoy it while he is living with you!! It won't be long and you'll be sending him off in this crazy world...and by then, "your time" is kinda over, do you know what I mean?
