If you have any "small" projects that you have been putting off....do it now! You will be doing all of those "small" projects at once, and they add up to a huge pain in the butt.
It is still not OK to leave Hudson alone with Sullivan....he WILL shove a screwdriver down his throat.
When they say "de-clutter" that is code for "throw everything you have away, or store it." My poor kids have no toys to play with in our house.
Speaking of toys. While you are cleaning your house like it has never been cleaned before, you will find ALL the toys you wondered where they went. It was like Christmas morning for Hudson.
You will also find enough bottles and sippy cups to supply a third world country. Just throw it ALL away. Life is too short to clean that mess out.
Just when you get the door painted Hudson will take a screwdriver (the same one Sully had shoved down his throat,) and will scrape through both layers of paint. Because we didn't learn not to leave him alone after the Sully incident.
Buy stock in magic erasers.
Clean your closets.
You will follow your toddler around like a psycho stalker picking up after them.
And they will STILL destroy everything. Even if there are no toys in the house.
You never realize how often you leave things lying around until you have to pick up every.single.thing you put down.
You will find yourself cooking less and less.....because you don't want to clean it up right away.
You will finally get around to the decorating you have been putting off
You will find all kinds of new places in your house to "hide" things.
You will question your sanity.....often.
You will realize you are not above bribery to sell your house :)
Your husbands obsession with vacuuming will be taken to a whole new level.
You will realize once you sell your house, and get a new one.....you will NEVER move again. Unless we hit the lotto, and I can pay someone to do all the work.
Once it is all said and done you can totally relate to Noah from "The Notebook." You kind of want to get drunk and burn it down.
We have had a lot of showings since putting it on the market, and we are still waiting for the right person to come along. In the meantime I will pray for patience, and spend my days cleaning up after my kids.
