If you write it down you will most likely get it done, they say.

Recently I have noticed my lack of “getting things done” around the house. I walked into my house the other day and felt overwhelmed. My sons toys, my husbands stuff and on top of that all of my stuff was all over the place. I felt like a bad wife and if anyone was to enter my house, they would think “wow, this place is a mess!.” I was telling my husband yesterday how I felt like even though I work from home, I still can’t find the time (and the motivation, really) to clean. Since my husband works a lot and doesn’t spend a lot of time at home, I can’t blame all of it on him. We are both messy people overall and we have talked about trying to be less messy to set a good example for our son. I’m starting to find that to be harder than I thought. I read somewhere that if you really want something accomplished you need to write it down and put it in front of you. I also remember the sticky note commercial telling me that! So I’ve made a cleaning list and a “Get things done for fall” list. I’m hoping I will find the motivation from looking at them! So, I spend this afternoon cleaning the house and hoping to start on my “cleaning list” tomorrow to attempt to keep the house looking less of a mess.

I am starting to notice that he is starting to sit up on his own without needing help and semi curious about food. I am looking forward to the day the doctor gives us the okay for purees and solid foods!!! My aunt bought my a Beaba Babycook blender and steamer and I’ve been YouTubing on how the thing works and what I can do with it. I honestly feel like its another appliance but we will see. It’s kind of an all in one so that should be nice. A friend of mine was talking about a concept called led baby feeding and I’m very interesting in that but then I think about the carpet in the living room. Maybe if our son destroys it, we will get hardwood floors faster. I do like the concept of having them feed themselves from the start but the mess that my son is going to create from that is a bit scary at the moment. I’m sure in the next month or so I
