While my bedside table may say that I'm organized and love pretty things and reading, my refrigerator tells a completely different story.
Take one look at my fridge, and the busyness that is our lives becomes apparent.
It probably looks like a thousand other busy family refrigerator doors. There is the expected child art work and a multitude of magnets.
But there is also a little bit more.
Chore charts for the boys: because it's important they learn responsibility and helping out.
Our Christmas card: because the boys' pictures were just too cute.
Birth announcement of a friends baby: The baby is nearly 4 months old now.
Shopping list: There are just too many things to keep track of otherwise.
Two of Bug's tests: He got 100%, and he should be honored.
Monkey's preschool graduation certificate: because he is so proud.
Homemade Father's Day card: The boys made it by themselves.
Leap Frog Alphabet Magnets: Best educational toy of all time!
Art work: All the "featured" artwork is Monkey's. He puts it up himself, and don't anyone dare go taking it down!
A post it note with my favorite recipe: I'll have to share this sometime.
Bits of paper behind souvenir magnets: Contain phone numbers for babysitters and doctors, appointment reminders, and random notes to myself.
Yes, it's a bit of a mess. Occasionally, I go through and thin the artwork, remove the old wedding and graduation invitations. I'll organize the magnets. But odds are that it will look exactly like this within 2 days.
We are a family with two creative, busy boys, and this is our refrigerator.
