The 4 Moms are back!
AND we are opening up our homes to you. Come on in and have a look around. Try to step around the mess, and make yourselves at home.
I was GOING to take some pictures of our weedy flower bed and the stray shoes on our front porch and tell you to remember that looks aren’t everything, and you can’t judge a book by its cover, and it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but this week I have either been at Six Flags with 8 children FOR TEN HOURS or had a baby attached to my breast almost non stop, and it’s sorta hard to take a good picture in that condition. Believe me. I tried.
So, instead, I’m posting these old pictures of our house.
This is what you will see if you drive up to our house. Complete with Monkey Boy, only he is about a foot taller now. If you come to visit, there will likely as not be someone with a baby on her hip. In this photo it is my now 10 year old and that baby is now 2 and a half and has been replaced as “the baby”.
If you make it through the used bicycle lot that is our driveway, to the front door without tripping over a roller skate, this is what will greet you. Remember, this picture is old, so I updated it with some captions. That rock on the right has, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” but some swallows decided to build a nest above it, and they will NOT be deterred by our repeated attempts at knocking it down with a broom, so it stays covered with bird droppings most of the time. Is that sacrilegious? Please, don’t tell me if it is, because I am much too tired to be washing rocks of all things.
This is a view from our back porch. We have a small backyard with only a trampoline for playing on. Which might explain why our 4 year old was jumping on it in the rain. In her church clothes. Wait a minute. Nothing can explain that. (Smockity makes mental note to give birth to more normal children.)
Here is another picture of our backyard with a view of our next door neighbor’s garage. You can see that we have near neighbors on all sides. We would love to have more space for rowdy children to romp and play outside, and our neighbors would no doubt love it too. Don’t ask me how I know this.
Thanks for visiting Smockity Land! I’m so glad you came! Y’all come back now. Ya hear?
