Cleaning day at my house is always… stressful, crazy, tiring… did I mention CrAZy!

I can’t change the fact that the house must be cleaned on a regular basis.

I can’t change the fact that I have three young, curious, fast moving, ever-interrupting children.

I can change my attitude.

With that in mind, here are the things I saw as I cleaned the house that made me smile.


Jude~ cleaning the kitchen

Gideon~ being VERY helpful by cleaning his cars.


Cleaning the train table with shaving cream and wet rags.


Jude helped out that day by “fixing” Eliza’s hair.

Hunting for birds from the back window.


What can happen while mommy cleans the bathroom.  Note: the “war paint”


And finally… watching a Donald Duck cartoon!

    Good post April! A mama’s attitude can make or break a day!

    Did you take a photography course? Your picture on the top of your blog is so professional looking. I would love to learn how to take better pictures.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    Good to see you back.  I loved Jude’s apron!  Just think, some day with all this training, you will be able to sit back and they will clean the house for you.  Yes, it’s a few years away but it’s something to look forward to.

    @georgene - I have never taken a photography class, and I can’t take credit for my header picture.  My husband took that one.  He’s the one with all the photography know-how! I do love the way it turned out.
