So what's the Motto with you?

I recently read a book called "I am a Mother" by Jane Clayson Johnson and she quoted a proverb that I know I've heard before that I've decided to take on as my new motto, creed, whatev. Here it is:

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait for tomorrow,
For babies grow up, I've learned, to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby(ies), and babies don't keep.

By the way, I added in that parentheses. So if I don't apologize to you when you come to my house and it's messy....here's why!

P.S. This picture is from last June but I just had to show this cute picture since it was before I started blogging. And so you could see firsthand why my house has been a disaster the last year. Oh, and they actually got into this position on their own, I just about died when I found them, my heart was so full to bursting. My, they grow so fast. Can you believe these two cuties are walking now?


  1. How cute. To bad they don't stay little forever huh?

  2. Sharla...since my littles one came home this has TOTALLY been my mantra!

    Yay for you - you 'get' it!!
