The Perfect Time

Yesterday my friend Blessing invited Sophia and I over for breakfast. We sat around and talked while the kids played. We then headed out to a christmas tree display at a local hotel where the girls played their version of chess & got to see Santa and Mrs. Clause. As exhausting as it was to keep up with the girls, we had a great time.

It was also nice to spend time with another mommy and watch Sophia play with Camille. Sophia and I rarely have play dates. I have tons of mommy friends in the area but we just never get together. I was talking to Blessing about this & told her that I'd love to have people over but the house is never clean. She laughed & reminded me that all houses are like this. I also went on about how we are still fixing up the house so I'm waiting for the house to just be .. perfect. You know, the type of houses you see on Pinterest or on other blogs. 

She then reminded me that I can't keep waiting on the perfect time, to just enjoy life the way it is. 

... and she's right. I need to just enjoy my house {clean or messy} & the people in my life. Even if that means inviting them over a couple times a month with dishes in the sink and crumbs on the floor. I have a toddler, my house is going to be messy. AND if the people I invite over are mommy's or have been, then they understand, if they've never been a mommy then they're not invited, ha!

So I am going to stop worrying and stressing over silly things and just enjoy what I have and who I have in my life. I love the idea of having get togethers and enjoying some time in my house. We've been here since June 2012 & there hasn't been too many people over. This is going to change. My goals are to be more social and inviting. Maybe this will be something that will happen a lot in 2013. 

But I just wanted to share this because I know I'm not the only momma out there that feels this way. I've read it before on other blogs.

 To all of my momma readers, here's a quote I found online & it's something think about & remember :
"Stop waiting for the perfect moment, take the moment you have and make it perfect!"

Hope everyone has a perfect Sunday! Whose coming over to my place for a play date?

Oh & please check out these out of focus pics of what it's really like behind the camera with two toddlers. I know I post all these cute pictures of Sophia smiling or sitting still but I am VERY lucky to get those. I'll probably take like 50 pics and be able to use 5, ha! But look at these energetic girls who wanted nothing to do with taking pictures. They wanted to jump on chairs instead. The poor employers at the hotel.
