I broke the perfect Mommy Rules! Twice!

2 weeks ago Rocco scored 4, Yes I said 4 goals for his soccer team. And of course, I did not have the video camera. But, I have good memories. Sure I would have loved to look back on it 10 years from now but, I'm not gonna beat myself up over it.

Anyhow, here's an announcement. I didn't keep a perfect kitchen last night. Gasp! As a matter of fact I left a sink full of dishes to fester until morning. (My dishwasher died a couple weeks ago and we have not gotten another yet). And after a "I just put my kids to bed I deserve a snack"snack, My daughter and I snuggled in my ever shrinking queen sized bed and talked till 10:30 or so. We talked and talked and talked and I would not trade that special girl-time for anything, let alone a sink full of dishes. I could have easily told her to go to bed while I spend 15-30 minutes cleaning the kitchen. I chose not to. And surprisingly enough, the dishes were still there when I got up. Once again... more good memories. The beauty of home school is that you can stay up late and not miss the bus in the morning.
