Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday linky party! Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one).
My point with each Monday post is, what are YOU doing or going to do today to make your home sing? It can be an attitude or an action. So have fun, do some blog hopping, and link up! Thanks!
Note: We had 95 linkups last week which is awesome! Don't forget to visit one another and try to leave a comment on at least one blog to encourage someone today! :)
It started after our first baby was born. He was so little and so helpless and so adorable that I had no problem giving him all the attention and care he needed. Hubby would understand, right?
Then our little one began crawling and I tried desperately to keep the floor clean and made sure the dog's toys were out of reach. Dog slobber. Yuck. I vacuumed and swept and kept one eye on the little guy and the other eye on the dog. Hubby would understand, right?
Then the little tornado....sorry....precious toddler was walking! Oh. My. Word. He was everywhere reaching and grabbing and breaking things. Days were spent following him around and precious evenings were spent rocking him to sleep. He was my world. Hubby would understand, right?
Then my preschooler became a big brother and my arms were as full as my heart. I cuddled and read stories to my oldest and sang songs and rocked my youngest. I just couldn't get enough of them. Hubby would understand, right?
Soon we were discovering the joys of homeschooling and books and frogs and painting pictures. Library visits and play dates with friends. Some nights I just fell into bed, exhausted. Hubby would understand, right?
The teen years came and with them, lots of running around and "Mom, I need a ride here" and "Mom, I need a ride there" and "Mom, are you hungry? I'm hungry." Seems like there was always someone willing to go to the mall with me or to run errands with me and I could never be lonely hanging out with my kids! Hubby would understand, right?
The high school years were over and the college years beginning as each child graduated and our homeschooling journey finally came to an end. I could hardly believe that my little children had grown up into such wonderful young adults. I looked forward to every spare moment that they could spend with me. Hubby would understand, right?
My first child married and I began to turn my thoughts to grandchildren and how wonderful it would be to have a baby in the house and have someone to pour all my love into and fill these empty arms again. Hubby would understand, right?
Hubby? Hubby? Hello???? Where did he go? WHEN did he go???
