Last year one of the college kids asked whose birthday it was after they saw the Happy Birthday banner up at our house. It was from about 3 months ago. I just replied, "That's how we roll."
While Josh and I were in the hospital right after I had Haddie, Mom and Dad took the boys to the house and decorated it.
It was so sweet with most of the decorations at about the heights of a couple of some proud big brothers.
Most of the decorations are still up. Yeah, Haddie just turned 3 months.
And the other night, after a wild evening of busyness and loud kids, I noticed that there was a soda spilled on the floor. I cleaned it up not knowing it was on the table too. The next day, I was cleaning off the table and found this:
Apparently, the soda had been spilled on a pink note sent home from school. The dye then bled into my table.
I was reminded why we don't buy new furniture (except the kids' beds). We've had this table since we first got married.
And that's how we roll. Decorations left up for a long time reminding us of past, notable celebrations. Stained table tops reminding us that life is a bit too chaotic sometimes.
I'm thankful for the friends we have who share similar occurrences.
I'm also glad I have a long weekend. I gotta try to get that pink stain out.
Oh, and my coffee maker looks like it threw up, too. Cleaning weekend, anyone?
