31 Days {Day 3} – My Laundry

31 Days {Day 3} – My Laundry

On this Saturday night, after baseball, shopping, a birthday party, and the park, it is finally bedtime and time for some laundry.

So I thought that I would just show you a glimpse of what laundry looks like in my life.

Can I just start by saying that you are about to feel so off the hook for laundry? Whatever effort you are putting into doing your laundry is most likely more effort than I’m putting into mine.

Laundry is not a sacred chore in this house – it’s a necessary evil. I have to constantly remind myself that laundry means my children are clothed and to count my blessings instead of cursing my loads and lack of motivation.

I’ve just recently realized something about my blog – I almost never talk about dads. I mean, I’ve had a couple quick little #SpartanLife365 posts about dads, but it hasn’t been anything extensive.

This isn’t that crazy, really…I have a mom blog. Except for the fact that the topic of fatherhood is one of the topics that I am the most passionate about.

When it comes to Raising Spartans, whether they are to be Spartan men or women, a father is one of the most, if not THE most, important components of success.

I’m sorry…what happened?

How is it October already? I’m just like a little bit freaking out.

Well, now that it’s here, so is a new and scary challenge!

For the month of October, I’m taking a blogging challenge that has been around for a few years. It’s been taken on by many bloggers, and it’s hosted by Crystal Stine (check out all the bloggers here!).

I’m not going to lie to you guys…this will be stretching myself – big time. But I’m excited about the things that will come from it!

Let’s be honest about something, though, okay? It’s not going to be the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen every single day. It won’t change your life on the daily. I’m not like some super spiritual guru, where you will walk away from this October shining with the afterglow of your magical experience here.

But what I can promise you is this: I will show up every day and be honest with you.
