The Thing about blogs

I've had a lot of people ask me how I have time to build a playhouse. Well, that is the thing about blogs. They only show half the story. I didn't post pictures of me dragging my kids around town to sell and buy things off craigslist. Or Chad and I getting into a conflict or my laundry pile. I just showed you our smiling kids and a finished playhouse. So here is how I had time to build a playhouse.

1 I didn't do it myself. -If my Dad hadn't come up for that week and work like a dog it would be far from done. Chad and I also spent many Saturdays working on the siding and trim.

2 I like to build things- We make time for what we like to do. Maybe it's sewing, watching football, or taking pictures. There is something that you make time for.

3 It was summer- So we weren't doing school and my kids played outside while we were working on it. We did skip a lot of pool days and park times to stay at home and I felt like we missed out on a lot of summer.

4 My house is messy- and my laundry is overflowing. I'm not saying this is right. It's just the truth.

5 I used nap times- from 2-4 everyday at our house is rest/ nap time. Not everyone naps but everyone stays in their bed. My kids think that is how the world functions everything shuts down for 2 hours. - please don't tell them any different.

So when you read blogs and wonder how they get it all done, know that they don't. They are just posting the good parts.

Way to Keep It Real. (It's still impressive though!)
