A tea party amid the chaos
Have you ever had one of those days where you just couldn't get ahead? The house was an absolute disaster. It wasn't cleaning itself and the girls were not giving me the chance to clean it. It was one of those days where they felt the need to squabble over every other little thing. Some time around 2:30 or so I gave up. The house could wait. The girls needed some attention. So we had a tea party in the middle of the living room, in the middle of the chaos of unfolded laundry and ruined couch cushion forts. This was about a week and a half ago. Funny how a little thing like a tea party can have sticking power. It has become the anchor in our afternoon. I don't know how long it will last but for now it is a wonderful thing.
