Design Mom is doing a series called “Living with kids”. Its interesting. I don’t always admire all the decor because, well, living with children is a dangerous proposition if your idea of perfect decor is white on white, but I love the sneak peak into the lives of real people.
If money and children where not considerations, my living room would look like this
or like this…(but with a white rug)
Can you imagine my kids climbing the lader and swinging from the chandelier?
In Designmom’s series the homes are real, lived in decor- and the stories are lovely, about real families, written by sweet loving mom’s. I love this quote from Chelsey Woolley featured last week.
Q: Please finish the sentence: I wish someone had told me…
A: I wish someone had told me not to judge a woman whose house is messy or cluttered. You never know who’s in their first trimester of a pregnancy, who is dealing with depression or an autoimmune disease, who’s struggling in their marriage, who’s overworked in some other area, or who hasn’t had a good night’s sleep in a long, long time.
It can and does happen to the best of us!
I wish someone had told me that when I see someone who doesn’t seem to have it 100% together to love first – and then try to help, if I can.”
Isn’t that so beautiful? Love first and try and help, if I can!
