A few weeks ago, I taught the world how to Mop: Blogger-style. I have been bombarded with visits from people who actuallygoogled “pictures of mopping the floor.”
I’ve actually considered getting a patent on my innovative idea. Who knew accidentally overflowing the tub would lead to such fame.
At the end of that post, which you can read here, I jokingly invited you all to come back and see how I “wash clothes -blogger-style.”
Fate is a funny thing.
Because about 9.2 days after I wrote that in jest, my toddler entered a new and exciting phase called, “Everything I see, I put in the tub full of water.”
“Hmmm. . . these could use some pre-treating.”
“Oh, yes the temperature is just perfect.”
“In they go. My Dad will thank me for taking care of his boxers-
And his shirt.”
You might find this little fact funny: That was the third time in three days she did this. I do not find this funny, in case you’re wondering. But I did decide to grab the camera and record it, you know, to show to the family therapist.
While I’m shooing her out and wringing out the wet clothes, she did this:
Yes, we have some water issues we will be dealing with this week. (This is where most of her hair accessories have ended up and yet, I keep trying. Why? I ask you?)
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”- Romans 1:20
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
