things forgotten...

It's funny how quickly I forget....

my mom was here visiting for a month... and while she was here...

the dishes magically cleaned themselves up after dinner....
the trash never over-flowed with rubbish..
the bathroom was always tidy when I went to use it...

I don't care how old I get.... it sure is nicer when mom is around.

Agreed! And there is often brownies or other treats that make themselves in the kitchen

Ummmm, can I borrow your mom?

If my mom were to stay with us, we would have more dirty dishes, more trash, and more mess. Sigh.

Aw Swirl...I'm thinking you're feeling pretty down right now uh? Moms have a way of leaving something like that behind I guess. The one time that my mom visited me was when I was about ready to give birth to Jen. My mom came and stayed with us for three months...omgoodness, the stuffs she did for me that I'd forgotten moms do for their kids.

My sink was always empty of dishes, never a dirty dish left overnight, my laundry washed, folded and put away, my apartment was constantly picked up and cleaned and FOOD. omg food, my mom was always cooking up a storm for me. I have a craving, she's at the stove making it.

**sighs**now that you brought this post of, I'm missing my mom now.

I guess no matter how old we get, we still need our moms, uh?

I love when your mom comes back from visiting you...she's always so domestic after she returns :) It does wear off after awhile, but it sure is nice right after she's back!

Hope you're not too sad...sorry you miss her so much. I know it's hard being so far away from your parents and siblings. But just think, August is not that far off :)

My mom was here for a week (about a month ago) and I'm just now getting back in the swing of things...

not because she cleaned and tidied or anything - but because that's when my dad and I began the storage room project... while my mom sewed and read...

I'm STILL cleaning some of the messes that the kids made in the meantime!
