Today was one of those days. One of those days that the house was a mess, school needed to be done, organization was in order and babies needed tending to. Since Chris was home today I figured my priorities should be in the order as stated above. But I got a gentle reminder that I was focusing on the wrong thing.

The house will become a mess again.

I have many, many years of home schooling ahead of me. While important, it is not as important as......Meet my priorities:

6 weeks

16 months

4 years old

8 years old

10 years old

12 years old

17 years old.

They need a mom who is willing to put them above a clean house, a spelling test and a messy desk.

I have a HUGE range of ages....newborn to young adult. Honestly, I feel that it wasn't long ago that the 17 yr. old looked like the first picture. Where did the time go?

While holding the baby today I looked him in the eyes. He NEEDS me. I NEED him. This is what truly matters.
