Wise Words

A few months ago, a friend of mine told me that her mother-in-law said, “The laziest moms are the ones that do it all.”
I think about that a lot… pretty much daily.

My husband is a little LESS inclined to see it my way.
“Okay, the kids aren’t allowed to use the vacuum anymore,” he said.
“Whyyyyy?” I whined.
“Because if I find that the hose has been clogged by crayons ONE MORE TIME, I’m going to lose it.”

But Dad. It’s SUCH a cool trick!


  1. I really appreciate that quote. At first I thought, “How could that be? They’re doing 100 things. Where is the lazy in that.” Then it sunk in. I get it. I understand it. I need to apply it….

  2. He’ll be thankful when they grow up and know how to work. :) What a wise lady that mother-in-law is! :) I love that her shoes cost 45 bucks!

      Well, you have to pay BIG BUCKS to get that genuine “chipped and completely worn out” look… you can’t just get that for free, you know? Haha.
