We Just Do Our Best

I found this little gem of a poem on 4 Little Men and Girly Twins blog.

I think it is perfect.

So I'm reposting it here for you to read. How true it is!

my house is spotless, except when it's not picked up

my bathrooms sparkle, except after boys use it

I make a nutritious meal every night, except when we eat out

my children are not loud, except when they raise their voices

my laundry is always done, except when we wear clothes

my children obey the first time, except when they don't listen

the dishes are always clean, except when we use them

my toddler is potty trained, except when he wears a diaper

my spelling and grammar is perfect, except when I don't double check it

my children don't eat sugar, except when we have treats

we always use cloth diapers, except when we use disposables

my children cloths always match, except when they don't

my children always go to bed on time, except when they stay up late

we don't watch TV, except when we watch a movie

my children don't break dishes, except when they drop them

my children put their toys away, except when they leave them out

we read a bible story everyday, except when I forget

I never say anything wrong, except when I misspeak

I am never late, except when we're running behind

I am never stressed, except when I have too much to do

my marriage is perfect, except when I don't make it a priority

my children never act out in public, except when they are being unruly

there is no chaos in our house, except when we are home

I am put together everyday, except when I don't take a shower

my hair looks perfect, except when I have a bad hair day

my babies sleep through the night, except when they wake up to eat

my windows are clean, except when little fingers touch them

I always finish my to-do list each day, except when I don't get it done

I am not selfish, except when I put myself first

I live my life for Jesus

I love my family

I am a sinner

I am not perfect

I am a regular mama

I can not do it all on my own

I am learning everyday

I do not know everything

I am just like you

I am Nicole.
