18 words.

"Go sit on the couch and see if you see anything disgusting that we can do something about."

Eighteen words. One of those sentences I never ever thought I'd say to my child.

A sweet friend called the other morning to say that she was bringing me lunch. She wanted to visit me and get caught up on life. Yay!

But even at it's cleanest, this house is a horror. Boo!

So we did some picking up and stashing....and then the sentence. Because, truly, there are some things here that we just cannot do anything about.

Except leave. And one sweet day, we will do just that. Yay.

I have told you these things,
so that you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart!
I have overcome the world.

Did it work? Did the kids see anything and did they do anything about it?

lol! : )
I love those moments when you say something, as a mama, that you never imagined yourself saying.
Whether because it is totally crazy, or maybe just like your own mama said.
